A simple refinement of Morreale's method yields a useful criterion to identify and cancel the redundant subfunctions generated in the application of the Pi-algorithm. Use of such a criterion improves the efficiency of the algorithm. Extension to multiterminal Boolean functions is also presented.
Algorithm, Boolean functions, component functions, incompletely specified, logical product, multiterminal functions, Pi-algorithm, prime implicants, product functions, recursive operator Pi.
