3 Boolean Variables and Functions Let B = {0, 1}. Boolean variable logic variable The variable x is called a Boolean variable or a logic variable if it assumes values only from B. Boolean constants Values 0 and 1 Boolean variables is called Boolean constants.

4 Boolean Variables and Functions Boolean functionlogic function A function y=f(x 1,x 2,...,x n ) is called a Boolean function or a logic function if it assumes values from B and each of its variables also assumes values from B. Boolean function of degree n A Boolean function is called a Boolean function of degree n if its formula contains n different variables.

5 The conjunction L(x 1, x 2 )= x 1  x 2 where L=1 if x1=1 and x 2 =1, L=0 otherwise. conjunction ANDoperator The “  ” symbol is called the conjunction or AND operator, and the circuit in Figure 1 is said to implement the conjunction. Figure 1 – The conjunction (series connection)

6 The disjunction L(x 1, x 2 ) = x 1  x 2 where L=1 if x 1 =1 or x 2 =1 or if x 1 =x 2 =1, L=0 if x 1 =x 2 =1. disjunctionOR operator The  symbol is called the disjunction or OR operator, and the circuit in Figure 2 is said to implement the disjunction. Figure 2 – The disjunction (parallel connection)

7 The negation L(x) = x where L=1 if x=0 L=0 if x=1. negationcomplement The value of this function is the inverse of the value of the input variable. Instead of using the word inverse, it is more common to use the term negation or complement.

8 Methods of Boolean function representation I. Truth table truth table The values of a Boolean function are often displayed in the form of a table called the truth table. The rows amount in a truth table is equal to the amount of different interpretations of the function (2 n ).

13 Methods of Boolean function representation II. Numbers of Boolean functions and interpretations Every function has a sequence number as a natural number a binary code of which is a column of function values in a truth table. A least significant bit is consider a lowermost row (value of function on interpretation (1,1,.,1)), and senior — most overhead (value of function on interpretation (0,0,.,0)).

14 Methods of Boolean function representation Every interpretation of Boolean function has the number – value of binary code which is interpretation. Interpretation, which is written in the overhead row of truth table, has a number 0, after interpretation has number 1 and etc. In a lowermost row interpretation is located with a number 2 n –1, where n is an amount of variables which depends a Boolean function.

15Example Find the sequence number for function f(x,y), which has next values: f(0,0)=1, f(0,1)=1, f(1,0)=0, f(1,1)=1. xyf(x,y) 001 011 100 111 Binary code for the value of this function – 1101. 1101 2 = 1  2 3 +1  2 2 +0  2 1 +1  2 0 = =8+4+0+1=13 10 Thus, f 13 (x,y) = (1101) 2

17 Methods of Boolean function representation III. Boolean function representation with using formulas formula A formula is expression which propose some function as superposition of another functions. Superposition Superposition is a method of new functions construction by the substitution of one function values in place of argument values of another function

18Example Consider the formula of boolean algebra for function f(x,y,z) This formula has functions: g(x 1 ) – negation, s(x 1,x 2 ) – conjunction, l(x 1,x 2 ) – disjunction. Present this formula as superposition of the indicated functions as follows: f (x,y,z) = l(s(x,g(y)),z)

19 Precedence of operations 1.Negation. 2.Conjunction. 3.Disjunction. 4.Implication. 5.Equivalence. –    ~ Example Clean all possible brackets Add some brackets taking into account precedence of operations

20 Equivalent function equivalent Two different Boolean expressions that represent the same function are called equivalent. For instance, all the Boolean expressions xy  1, xy  0, and xy are equivalent.

21 Boolean Identities 1) Commutative laws x  y = y  x x  y = y  x 2) Associative laws x  (y  z)= (x  y)  z x  (y  z)=(x  y)  z 3) Distributive laws x  (y  z) = (x  y)  (x  z) x  (y  z) = (x  y)  (x  z)

22 Boolean Identities 4) Idempotent laws x  x = x  x = 5) The excluded middle law 6) The contradiction law 7) The absorption laws (elimination laws) x  (x  y) = x  (x  y) = x x 1 0 x x

23 Boolean Identities 8) Identity laws x  0 = x  1 = 9) Domination laws x  1 = x  0 = 10) Law of the double negation 11) De Morgan`s laws x x 1 0 x

25 Dual Boolean function dual Function f*(x 1,…,x n ) is called dual to function f(x 1,…,x n ), if

26 Selfdual Boolean function A Boolean function is called selfdual if

27 Selfdual Boolean function It is easy to define if a given Boolean function is selfdual or not by its truth table. For this we divide a truth table by half, using the symmetrical line. If any arc connects equal values, then the function is not selfdual. If every arc connects different values, then the function is selfdual.

28 Selfdual Boolean function Example. Define if the function f 14 (x,y) is selfdual. Solution. Given function is not selfdual. xyf 14 = x|y 001 011 101 110

29 Example. Define, if function f(x,y,z) is selfdual. Solution. f(x,y,z) — selfdual. xyzf (x,y,z)f* (x,y,z) 0000 0011 0101 0111 1000 1010 1100 1111 Selfdual Boolean function 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1

30 Duality principle The function f is given by superposition of function f 0,…,f n, where n  N. Function f*, dual to f, can be obtained, changing functions f 0,…,f n in the formula f for dual to f 0 *,…,f n *.

31 Example. Find dual functions. Solution. Duality principle

32 To obtain dual formula of Boolean algebra it is needed to change all conjunctions for disjunctions, disjunctions for conjunctions, 0 for 1, 1 for 0 in it, and use brackets where it is needed to keep previous order of fulfilling operations. Rule of obtaining dual formula

33 Example. Find function dual to function Solution. Let’s use previous rule of obtaining dual formula. Rule of obtaining dual formula

34 If functions are equal then dual to them functions are equal too. Let f 1 and f 2 are some functions expressing by such formulas. If f 1 = f 2, then f 1 * = f 2 * Rule of obtaining dual formula
