ABSTRACT
Let gk:{0,1}n+k ? {0,1}, where n = 2k, be the binary function defined by gk(a1,???, ak, X0,???, xn-1) = x(a) where (a) is the natural number with binary representation a1,???, ak. This function models the reading operation in a random-access storage. In [1] Paul proved a 2n lower bound to the combinational complexity of gk. This correspondence derives a realization for gk in a circuit with 2n + 0(vn) gates and a depth asymptotic to k.
