Computing circuits composed of noisy logical gates and their ability to represent arbitrary Boolean functions with a given level of error are investigated within a statistical mechanics setting. Existing bounds on their performance are straightforwardly retrieved, generalized, and identified as the corresponding typical-case phase transitions. Results on error rates, function depth, and sensitivity, and their dependence on the gate-type and noise model used are also obtained.
