In this approach, the logic state is represented as resistance, where a high resistance is logical state zero, and a low resistance is logical state one. An example of this approach, the IMPLY logic gate, is shown in Figure 2.

24
examples ((abc)’+ (ab))’ + (bcd) = ((a’ + b’ + c’) + ab)’ + bcd = (abc) * (ab)’ + bcd = (abc) * (a’ + b’) + bcd = (b’c) + bcd

25
example ((ab) 0) = (a’+b’) ((ab) (ab)) = (a’+b’) + ab (0 ab) = (ab) (a b) = (a’+b)

26
a b a + b a a b a + b a 0 a b ( a + b) = a * b 0 a a + b = (a * b) b 0 All these circuits assume that value of b already exists. If it does not exist, we need two inverters (from IMPLY) to create it.

27
a b a + b a a b a + b a 0 a b ( a + b) = a * b 0 a (a * b) b 0 0 All these circuits assume that value of b already exists. If it does not exist, we need two inverters (from IMPLY) to create it.

When we want to decrease the number of ancilla bits we need: 1.Methods with many exors are not good as they would require copying elements. 2.Methods are good if they naturally create trees 0
