Complete monotonicity is a necessary condition for linear separability of a switching function and it is equivalent to the 2-asummable property. A test for this property using a tabular representation of a switching function and an easily generated test card is given. This method may be used reasonably well up to six variables.
Complete monotonicity, linearly separable functions, 2-asummable functions.
