We consider the problem of finding the minimum number K(n,c) of total switching functions of n variables necessary to cover the set of all switching functions which are specified in at most c positions. We find an exact solution for K(n,2) and an upper bound for K(n,c) which is better than a previously known upper bound by an exponential factor.
Minimal covers, partially specified switching functions, switching functions.
