This dissertation is devoted to the construction of a new algebraic structure for the K-map so that algorithms and theorems can be derived for the minimization of Boolean functions and at the same time provide for the manipulation of Boolean functions as freely as one could on the K-map.
Computer programs have been included to demonstrate the theory and numerous examples of various complexity have been worked out in the appendices.
