Abstract : The Institute of Automation and Telemechanics is engaged in the development of a desk-type special-purpose computer for minimization of Boolean functions of 4-6 variables which are in canonical disjunctive form. The algorithm to be utilized was proposed by M. A. Gavrilov. This algorithm is an ordered procedure for minimizing a function of 10-12 variables in a given time limit. A prototype of one part of the computer (solving for implicants of a given function) is already made. (Author)
