Abstract : The report introduces a method of synthesis of digital systems and develops a theory by which this new concept may be applied to problems of both theoretical and practical significance. The particular instrument chosen to illustrate the theory is a set of modules or building blocks, viz., shift registers of equal length. It is shown that this module type has certain properties (not found in binary building blocks) which are common to the general digital building block and therefore the development here represents a first step in obtaining a theory for system design using non-binary modules.
