Title: A branch-ann-bound algorithm for optimal evaluation of monotonic boolean functions
Authors: Yu. Breitbart and A. Reiter
Abstract: For monotonic Boolean functions, a branch-and-bound algorithm is given for constructing an optimal decision tree (sequential evaluation procedure). The tree is optimal in minimizing the average number of variables which need to be examined.
