Jan. 2009 Computer Architecture, Background and Motivation Slide 6 The Arithmetic Substitution Method z = 1 – z NOT converted to arithmetic form xy AND same as multiplication (when doing the algebra, set z k = z ) x y = x + y xy OR converted to arithmetic form x y = x + y 2 xy XOR converted to arithmetic form Example: Prove the identity xyz x ′∨ y z ′≡ ? 1 LHS = [ xyz x ] [ y z ] = [ xyz + 1 – x –(1– x ) xyz ] [1 – y + 1 – z y )(1 – z )] = [ xyz + 1 – x ] [1 – yz ] = ( xyz + 1 – x ) + (1 – yz ) – ( xyz + 1 – x )(1 – yz ) = 1 + xy 2 z 2 xyz = 1 = RHS This is addition, not logical OR
