Abstract-A function is reversible if each input vector produces a unique output vector. Reversible functions find applications in low power design, quantum computing, and nanotechnology. Logic synthesis for reversible circuits differs substantially from traditional logic synthesis. In this paper, we present the first practical synthesis algorithm and tool for reversible functions with a large number of inputs. It uses positive-polarity Reed-Muller decomposition at each stage to synthesize the function as a ne…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
