Abstract : The report covers research performed from March 1966 to March 1967. The major topics treated are: (1) methods for finding weight-threshold vectors that realize a given switching function in multi-threshold linear logic; (2) synthesis of sequential machines by means of shift registers and simple variants of that form; (3) an on-line programming system for computer-aided shift-register synthesis of sequential machines; (4) the relationship between finite memory-span and shift-register synthesis; (5) studies of 'globally universal' switching functions; (6) methods for the synthesis of switching networks where signals can have more than two levels; and (7) universal circuit forms for sequential machines.
