Representation of Boolean functions in Canonical and Standard Forms:
Minterm or a standard product: Minterms are standard product terms obtained by AND
operations on ‘n’ variables under discussion.
Suppose n = 2 (x and y)
and, we know ‘0’ represents complements i.e. x’ and y’
so, we have x, y, x’ and y’
Therefore, Minterms combinations are shown below.
Maxterm or standard sum: Maxterms are standard sum terms obtained by OR operation
of ‘n’ variables and their complements.
Generally, Maxterms are represented as complements of Minterms.
Therefore, Maxterm combinations are shown below.
