Unformatted text preview: “simplest sum of products form (or expression)” means the same as the Givone’s use of the term “minimal sum”; “simplest product of sums form (or expression)” means the same as the Givone’s use of the term “minimal product”. Letting the symbol “ φ ” denote “don’t cares” then the notation “f(w , x , y , z) = Σ(4 , 5 , 8 , 9 , 12 , 13) + Σ φ (0 , 3 , 7 , 10 , 11) ′′ means the same as the Givone’s use of “f(w , x , y , z) = Σ m (4 , 5 , 8 , 9 , 12 , 13) + dc (0 , 3 , 7 , 10 , 11) ′′ . Furthermore, “f(w , x , y , z) = Π(4 , 5 , 8 , 9 , 12 , 13) + Π φ (0 , 3 , 7 , 10 , 11) ′′ means the same as the Givone’s use of “f(w , x , y , z) = Π M (4 , 5 , 8 , 9 , 12 , 13) + dc (0 , 3 , 7 , 10 , 11) ′′ ....
