The multiplicative complexity of a Boolean function f is defined as the minimum number of binary conjunction (AND) gates required to construct a circuit representing f , when only exclusive-or, conjunction and negation gates may be used. This article explores in detail the multiplicative complexity of symmetric Boolean functions. New techniques that allow such exploration are introduced. They are powerful enough to give exact multiplicative complexities for several classes of symmetric… CONTINUE READING
