A method of network synthesis for general combinational functions that uses a number of fixed threshold logic units not greatly in excess of the theoretical minimum is described. It can be used with adaptive logic in which case a minority of the interconnections are simply adapted once according to the rule originally suggested by Hebb. This network on its own has no capacity for ``generalization,'' and if used for pattern recognition must therefore be operated in conjunction with a suitable property filter, such as that of the previous paper.[<sup>1</sup>] In this case the present network could perform as a trainable ``categorizer.''
