Title: Bounds On Decision Trees For Monotonic Boolean Functions
Authors: Y. Breitbart, D. Gelperin, M. Newborn
Abstract: The expected number of decisions for the 'worst' and the maximum number of decisions for the 'best' monotonic Boolean function of n variables are given. The utility of these characteristics for switching theory and process control is discussed. Keywords and phrases: monotonic Boolean function, symmetric function, decision tree, switching theory.
