Ternary logic is MVL compliant. However, only three logic states are used “0”, “1” and “2”. The optimum radix (r) of a fractional number is found to be the natural logarithm (e). Ternary logic uses number representation with r=3, compared to quaternary logic which uses r=4, hence the most economical integer radix which is the closest to the natural logarithm e, is base 3 [3]. This special property of base 3 inspired the early computer designers to build a ternary computer. According to the… Expand
