Abstract

This work presents the Yasser-map as an improvement for the Karnaugh-map especially when the number of variables exceeds four. For many years the k-map is considered as the best way for solving logical problems that depend on four variables at most. However, it becomes hard with 5 variables and very difficult with six variables and almost impossible with more than 6 variables. The Quine-McCluskey method used to be the only other choice four such logical problems with large number of variables. However, the Quine-McCluskey method is also complicated and usually it is applied by a computer program. The Yasser-map which is introduced in this work is suitable for problems with low number of variables and also for problems with large number of variables. A six variable example is solved using the Yasser-map to explain how simple it is.
