not yet rated|write a review
This book blends mathematical foundations and algorithmic developments with circuit design issues. Each new technique is presented in the context of its application to design. Through the study of optimal two-level and multilevel combinational circuit design, the reader is introduced to basic concepts, such as Boolean algebras, local search, and algebraic factorization. Similarly, through the study of optimal sequential circuit design, the reader is introduced to graph algorithms, finite state systems, and language theory. Throughout the book, recurrent themes such as branch and bound, dynamic programming, and symbolic implicit enumeration are used to establish optimal design principles.

From the Jacket

In the last decade logic synthesis has gained widepsread acceptance by designers.  Formal verification is now advancing along the same path.  Computer aided design tools for logic synthesis and verification have become the primary instrument for coping with the ever increasing complexity of designs, and ever more stringent time-to-mark...
