ABSTRACT This paper shows a method to reduce the number of input variables to represent incompletely specified index generation functions. A compound variable is generated by EXORing the original input variables. By using both original and compound variables, incompletely specified index generation functions can be represented by fewer variables. As a means to select variables, a heuristic method using information gains is presented. We compare representing random functions using 1. only original variables, and 2. both original and compound variables. Experimental results show that the use of compound variables effectively reduces the number of input variables.

    ABSTRACT: This survey first introduces index generation func- tions, which are useful for pattern matching in communication circuits. Then, it shows various methods to realize index gener- ation functions using memories. A linear transformation is used to reduce the number of variables and thus memory size. An extension to the multiple-valued case is also presented. I. INDEX GENERATION FUNCTION This paper surveys recent results on index generation func- tions. Applications of index generation functions include: IP address table lookup, packet filtering, terminal access con- trollers, memory patch circuits, virus scan circuits, fault maps for memory, and pattern matching. In addition, this paper introduces an index generation unit that efficiently realizes an index generation function by a linear circuit and a pair of smaller memories. Due to space limitations, definitions of standard terminology used in switching circuit theory (11) are omitted.

    ABSTRACT: This paper shows a heuristic method to reduce the number of variables to represent incompletely specified index generation functions using linear decompositions. To find good linear transformations, two measures are introduced: the imbalance measure and the ambiguity measure. Experimental results using m-out-of-n code to binary converters, randomly generated functions, IP address tables, and lists of English words show the usefulness of the approach.

    ABSTRACT: This paper shows that autocorrelation functions are useful to find the number of variables to represent incompletely specified index generation functions. It also shows a strategy to reduce the number of variables to represent incompletely specified index generation functions in the autocorrelation domain.
