Minimal Negative Gate Networks
January 1972 (vol. 21 no. 1)
pp. 5-11
K. Nakamura, Faculty of Marcantile Marine, Kobe University of Marcantile Marine
A negative gate is a gate that can realize an arbitrary negative function (or monotone decreasing function) and a positive gate is one that can realize an arbitrary positive function (or monotone increasing function). This paper discusses methods of realizing a given logical function or a given set of logical functions using a minimum number of negative gates alone or using a minimum number of negative and positive gates.
Index Terms:
Inversion complexity, minimal decomposition, minimal negative gate network, monotone function, negative function, positive function.
