Transformation between two kinds of expansion coefficients of symmetric functions based on mapping method

  • Chen Xiexiong
  • Claudio Moraga


This paper discusses the definitions and properties of two kinds of fundamental symmetric functions, which are based on AND-OR-NOT algebraic system and AND-Exclusive OR algebraic system, respectively. Based upon it, some mapping transformation methods between two kinds of expansion coefficients of an arbitrary symmetric function in the complete set of two fundamental symmetric functions.
