The techniques for switching circuit synthesis rely heavily on the representations of the signals in the network. In this note a field-element representation and some synthesis techniques are discussed. An advantage of using field-element representations is that algebraic manipulations can be performed on the descriptions, simplifying some minimization problems. The networks which are minimized use components which perform operations on field elements. This representation may be useful for describing some of the problems which arise in larger interconnections of logical circuits.
