Default Computer rating system?

Does anyone know how the computer rating system works? Does it only go on wins and losses or does it look at the closeness of the score? People are gaming the system. If some could win 6-0,6-0 but wins 7-5,7-5 it may look a lot different to a computer that looks at closeness of the score. Also if a team is way ahead in points it can afford to have someone lose to keep them qualified. Another way to keep players qualified at a lower level is having them lose at doubles even though they are good at singles if they are much better at singles than doubles. Some one is correct that this computer rating system is not perfect, but it is easier for the USTA then having people rate players. I would like to know what the computer rating system looks at.
