Meet and Join Derivatives and Their Use in Switching Theory
August 1978 (vol. 27 no. 8)
pp. 713-720
A. Thayse, MBLE Research Laboratory
The theoretical concepts of meet and join derivatives and extended vector of Boolean functions are defined. These concepts give rise to new methods (using the Kronecker matrix product) for prime implicant and prime implicate extraction. An extensive comparison between meet and join derivatives and the consensus theory is made.
Index Terms:
prime implicants and prime implicates, Boolean functions, consensus theory, extended vectors, meet and join derivatives
