Abstract : This paper presents a method for synthesizing multivalued logic functions composed of hyperplanes which can be represented by multivalued multithreshold functions. In this method, multivalued logic functions can be synthesized using the operators algebraic + , - and . as well as logical max and min and no operators to yield binary values only is used. The theorem for such operations is presented. Simplified representations of functions can easily be obtained utilizing the expressions of hyperplanes. During the synthesizing process the various techniques of usual algebra and geometry are used when required. As for the circuit implementation, the one operation amplifier per one function method is presented. (Author)
