The book discusses the simplified proof of Post's theorem on completeness of logic primitives; the role of feedback in combinational switching circuits; and the systematic procedure for the design of Lupanov decoding networks. The text also describes the classical results on counting theorems and their application to the classification of switching functions under different notions of equivalence, including linear and affine equivalences. The development of abstract harmonic analysis of combinational switching functions; the theory of universal logic modules, methods of their construction, and upper bounds on the input terminals; and cellular logic are also considered. The book further tackles the systematic techniques for the realization of multi-output logic function by means of multirail cellular cascades; the programmable cellular logic; and the logical design of programmable arrays. Electrical engineers, electronics engineers, computer professionals, and student taking related courses will find the book invaluable.
