<p><b>Abstract</b>—Binary Decision Diagrams are widely used in many applications in VLSI CAD. Linear transformations are one way to increase the computational power of BDDs. In this paper, we study linearly transformed BDDs (LTBDDs) from a practical point of view. First, we describe minimization techniques for LTBDDs. Then, we present efficient manipulation algorithms for LTBDDs. We give a large set of experimental results to demonstrate the efficiency of the algorithms.</p>
