<p><b>Abstract</b>—After discussing a few derivations of the canonical, i.e., unique, polynomial form of a Boolean function, various interesting applications of this form are discussed. Mainly, the polynomial form is shown to be very useful for a deeper understanding of switching functions with emphasis on fault tolerant electronics systems.</p>
