Abstract : Threshold logic and ternary logic design research is described in this bolume. The description of threshold logic includes theoretical results usable for synthesizing threshold functions by means of orthogonal expansions, Boolean techniques, or decomposition methods. Design techniques which consider constraints imposed by practical circuit considerations are also described, along with the assumptions which define the constraints. The work on ternary logic is intended to be a prelude to later extension to p-valued logic. The two major approaches followed are: (1) deriving suitable ternary algebra systems which include properties desirable for minimizing logic expressions, and (2) devising methods for expressing ternary functions in forms suitable for implementation by ternary elements.
