Entropy of Contact Circuits and Lower Bounds on Their Complexity

  title={Entropy of Contact Circuits and Lower Bounds on Their Complexity},
  author={Stasys Jukna},
  journal={Theor. Comput. Sci.},
A method for obtaining lower bounds on the contact citchlt complexity of explicitly defined Boolean functions is given. It appears as one of possible.concretixations of a more general “‘convolutional” approach to the lower bounds problem worked out by the author in 1984 [123. The method is based on an appropriate notion of “inner information” or “entropy” of finite objects (circuits, Boolean functions, etc.). Lower bounds on the complexity are obtained by means of entropy-preserving embeddings… CONTINUE READING
