Satisfying the Requirements of an Introductory Course
The text presents a clear picture of basic concepts, effective problem-solving techniques, modern technologies, and applications. It focuses on the relationships between and the manipulation of various data structures. By examining the similarities and differences between assorted theoretical approaches for the representation, manipulation, and optimization of Boolean functions, the authors provide a unified overview of the relationships among digital system design, computer organization, micro- and nanoelectronics, and numerical methods. The book also describes classical minimization techniques, along with advanced and emerging problems of logic design.
Meeting the Needs of Developing Technology
Reflecting the integrated nature of modern engineering, this text shows how theoretical ideas, physical devices, and design methodologies come together to form a successful design approach. It provides the basis to explore even more sophisticated aspects in the field.
