Abstract : A summary of a program concerned with various problems in the theory of switching circuits is given. Specific results include: an improved Ambit method for realizing cut-set matrices, the detection of partial symmetry in boolean polynomials, realization of symmetric diode circuits, treatment of combinational relay-diode circuits by matrix and graph theoretic methods, and an improvement in an established technique for minimizing the internal states in an incompletely specified sequential machine.
