Abstract : A method is developed for determining which of the regular switching functions are canonical. The method described requires finding: (1) the set of maximal points of a regular function, and (2) the set of minimal points of the complement of the function. The basic method proves that the minimal points of the function complement are equivalent to the maximal points of the dual of the function. Hence, the previous method for finding the maximal points is applicable. The duality theorems are given and proven. (Author)
