Abstract : The problem treated is the simultaneous minimization of three Boolean functions X, Y, and Z such that if F1 and F2 are any two given Boolean functions we have F1 = XY and F2 = XZ. In switchingcircuit terminology the problem consists of synthesizing a minimal wye (Y) network to realize two arbitrary switching functions. By reducing the given two-output problem to an equivalent single-output problem, the required minimal synthesis procedure is found for the case where each of the functions X, Y, and Z is restricted to be of the product-of-sums form.
