Abstract?A switching function A is viewed as a subset of vertices of the unit n-cube. The power parameter of A is the number of vertices comprising A and the characterizing vector is the vector sum of the vertices of A. It is shown that the characterizing vector (without the power parameter) uniquely determines a threshold function within parity.
Index terms?Characterizing vector, class representatives, power parameter, threshold function, uniqueness (within parity).
