Karnaugh Map (also known as
the Vetch Diagram) reduction was developed as a graphic
method of minimizing Boolean function. The 4-variable Karnaugh
Map reduction shown here applies to any size map.
F(w,x,y,z) = (0,1,2,4,5,6,8,9,12,13,14)
Minterms must be
boxed in the smallest number of groups which
results in all minterms being enclosed.
that w,x,y,z terms (and their compliments) are
arranged in positions corresponding to the axis
labels. One unique minterm exists in each square.
