Abstract

The choice table provides one of the techniques for the representation of functions in continuous-valued logic [1]. The need to synthesize functions from choice tables arise in the design of hybrid [2] and analog [3] computers, and also in other applications of continuous-valued logic that are surveyed in [4]. The structure of the original table is determined by the external specification of the device or unit being designed.

Algorithms are available for the synthesis of continuous-valued logic functions from choice tables of a special form, for instance, from ordered choice tables [ It is noted in [ that a general algorithm to synthesize a continuous-valued logic function from an arbitrary choice table is still unknown.

In the present article, we derive a criterion that decides whether a given choice table defmes some continuous-valued logic function and construct a simple algorithm to synthesize the function from the table.
