Abstract : A combinatorial mixvalued algebra, denoted by Mx, operates on variables representing multivalued signals and buses of any width (including width = 1). A bus of signals is represented as a single multivalued variable. All variables in Mx can range over values and sets of values and are not required to range over the same set. The function set proposed for Mx includes relational, set theoretic, and existential operators. The usual twovalued Boolean algebra is a subalgebra of Mx when all variables are binary and from the same set of values. Only combinatorial memoryless topics are discussed, but sequential and memory circuits composed of Mx operations are known. Mx is useful for compact technologyindependent representation of digital systems during the design process. (Author)
