Recently, researchers have proposed many models using reconfigurable optically pipelined buses. All algorithms developed for these models assume that a healthy system is available. We present some fundamental algorithms that are able to tolerate up to $N/2$ faults on an $N$-processor LARPBS (one particular optical model). We then extend these results to apply to other algorithms in the areas of image processing and matrix operations.
