Each clause in the DNF specifies one truth assignment for which the function holds. For example, the DNF form of XOR is $(x \land \lnot y) \lor (\lnot x \land y)$.

The main observation is that if the function is monotone, you can remove all the negated literals (why?). Abstract. We prove that the fully asynchronous dynamics of a Boolean network $$f:\{0,1\}^n\rightarrow \{0,1\}^n$$ without negative loop can be simulated, in a very specific way, by a monotone Boolean network with 2n components.

We then use this result to prove that, for every even n, there exists a monotone Boolean network $$f:\{0,1\}^n\rightarrow \{0,1\}^n$$, an initial configuration Cited by: 5. [21 K.

A generalization of the idea of a monotone Boolean function is that of monotone function of -valued logic.

This gives alternative proofs of the separations of m-NC from m-P and of m-NCi from m. Transcriptional regulation networks are often modeled as Boolean networks. We discuss certain properties of Boolean functions (BFs), which are considered as important in such networks, namely, membership to the classes of unate or canalizing functions.

Of further interest is the average sensitivity (AS) of functions. In this article, we discuss several algorithms to test the Cited by: The study of Boolean networks received a lot of attention recently as a useful model to understand complicated dynamic natural or man-made networks.

In this paper, we focus on monotone Boolean networks where there are only AND and OR operations in the node dynamics. Operator expressions are employed as our tools to study the iterative behaviors and properties of these networks. * Probabilistic Boolean Networks as Models for Gene Regulation * Integrating Results from Literature Mining and Microarray Experiments to Infer Gene Networks The book is for both, scientists using the technique as well as those developing new analysis techniques.

The set of functions {0, 1, (x12 1 2 x), (x x)} is a complete system (and moreover, a basis) in the class of all monotone Boolean functions (Alekseev, ). For the number (n) of monotone Boolean functions. Abstract.

In mathematics, a monotonic function (or monotone function) is a function between ordered sets that preserves or reverses the given order.
