Consideration is given to the class of partially symmetric functions and a method for realizing them is outlined. Each such function can be expressed as a sum of totally symmetric functions such that a circuit can be designed with its complexity dependent on the size of such symmetric cover. The authors compare the sizes of symmetric and sum-of-product covers and show that the symmetric cover w
