A

**minterm**l is a product (AND) of all variables in the function, in direct or complemented form. A**minterm**has the property that it is equal to 1 on exactly one row of the truth table. A**maxterm**is a sum (OR) of all the variables in the function, in direct or complemented form.Also know, what is a KMAP?

**map**(K-**map**) is a pictorial method used to minimize Boolean expressions without having to use Boolean algebra theorems and equation manipulations. A K-**map**can be thought of as a special version of a truth table . Using a K-**map**, expressions with two to four variables are easily minimized.What is a product of sums?

The minterms and maxterms may be used to define the two standard forms for logic expressions, namely the

**sum**of**products**(SOP), or**sum**of minterms, and the**product of sums**(POS), or**product**of maxterms. Boolean functions expressed as a**sum**of**products**or a**product of sums**are said to be in canonical form.What is a Implicant?

**Implicant**. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In Boolean logic, an

**implicant**is a "covering" (sum term or product term) of one or more minterms in a sum of products (or maxterms in product of sums) of a Boolean function.
