Abstract : The central problem with respect to magnetic logical transducers is to find a means of expressing logical systems in a language more closely related to the physical nature of the magnetic logical transducer (as a threshold element) than the ordinary formulation in Boolean algebra. This report describes an approach to the problem using some of the techniques of lattice theory. A sufficient criterion for 3-monotonicity in sixvariable functions is also described in terms of lattice theory, and a theory of voting logic is advanced. Finally, the appendix gives recursive formulas for determining the input weights of magnetic logical transducers which will generate each of two particular complete, maximal chains of realizable functions for any number of variables.
