Symmetry in Reversible Functions and Circuits

Paweł Kerntopf , Marek Szyprowski


Symmetric functions are a class of Boolean functions which are very important in logic circuit design and many other areas of computer science. Totally symmetric ninput 1-output functions are defined as ones for which any permutation of n variables gives the function itself. Reversible functions are n-input n-output bijective mappings. Thus permutations of variables in reversible functions lead inherently to different functions. The traditional notion of symmetry can only be applied to their component functions. However, we consider a new kind of symmetry and study how it can be useful in the reversible circuit synthesis.
