Simplification of Boolean Logic

Boundedness Law

Boundedness Law

X + 1 = 1

X . 0 = 0

Absorption Law

X + (X . Y) = X

X . (X + Y ) = X

Elimination Law

X + (X' . Y) = X + Y

X.(X' + Y) = X.Y

Unique Complement theorem

If X + Y = 1 and X.Y = 0 then X = Y'

Involution theorem

X'' = X

0' = 1

Associative Properties

X + (Y + Z) = (X + Y) + Z

X . ( Y . Z ) = ( X . Y ) . Z

Duality Principle

Interchanging AND and OR operators and replace 0's by 1's and 1's by 0's.

Duality of X.Y+Z' = (X'+Y').Z

Minterms and Maxterms

Any boolean expression may be expressed in terms of either minterms or maxterms.

Literal

A literal is a single variable within a term which may or may not be complemented.

A minterm is the product of N distinct literals where each literal occurs exactly once.

A maxterm is the sum of N distinct literals where each literal occurs exactly once.

The minterms and maxterms for a two-variable expression is

A B Minterm Maxterm

0 0 A'.B' A+B

0 1 A'.B A+B'

1 0 A.B' A'+B

1 1 A.B A'+B'

The minterms and maxterms for a three variable expression is

A B C Minterm Maxterm

0 0 0 A'.B'.C' A+B+C

0 0 1 A'.B'.C A+B+C'

0 1 0 A'.B.C' A+B'+C

0 1 1 A'.B.C A+B'+C'

1 0 0 A.B'.C' A'+B+C

1 0 1 A.B'.C A'+B+C'

1 1 0 A.B.C' A'+B'+C

1 1 1 A.B.C A'+B'+C'
