\section{Abstract}
Karnaugh maps and Veitch charts\footnote{In previous releases of this document
I referred to Karnaugh maps as Karnaugh-Veitch-Maps. This was definitely not
correct. Thanks to F.~M.~Brown for pointing this error out to me.} are used
to simplify logic equations. The drawing of them used to be a boring,
annoying and error-prone task. With the included macros this is no longer a
problem. They can typeset Karnaugh maps and Veitch charts with up to ten
variables, which is more than you might likely need. You only have to provide
a list of variable identifiers plus the function table of your logic
function(s). The macros also allow to mark the simplifications of your logic
function directly within a Karnaugh map or Veitch chart.
\section{Introduction}
Karnaugh maps and Veitch charts are used to simplify logic equations. They are
map representations of logic functions, and in that they are equivalent. The
difference between the two kinds of diagrams is the way in which the variables
of the functions are located within the diagrams: ``The Karnaugh map \ldots{}
displays a function's discriminants according to the reflected binary (Gray)
code. The Veitch chart \ldots{} displays the discriminants in natural binary
order.'' (F.~M.~Brown)
However, the drawing of either kind of them used to be a boring, annoying and
error-prone task. Since I had to typeset a 50+~page collection of exercises
for a basic computer-science lecture with plenty of Karnaugh maps in it, I
decided to write some macros that would do this task for me. Let us start
first with an introduction on how to use these Macros:
The first thing you have to do is to put the macro file \verb|kvmacros.tex|
into a directory where \TeX{} will find it, i.e. you have to put it into a
directory where your \texttt{TEXINPUTS} environment variable points to. You
can then load them by typing
\verb|\input kvmacros| somewhere in the preamble of your document.
Suppose now you have a logic function~$f$ with the following function table:
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{lr}
\begin{tabular}[t]{r|cccc|c}
Index&$a$&$b$&$c$&$d$&$f$\\
\hline
0&0&0&0&0&1\\
1&0&0&0&1&1\\
2&0&0&1&0&1\\
3&0&0&1&1&0\\
4&0&1&0&0&0\\
5&0&1&0&1&1\\
6&0&1&1&0&1\\
7&0&1&1&1&0\\
\end{tabular}
&
\begin{tabular}[t]{r|cccc|c}
Index&$a$&$b$&$c$&$d$&$f$\\
\hline
8&1&0&0&0&0\\
9&1&0&0&1&1\\
10&1&0&1&0&1\\
11&1&0&1&1&0\\
12&1&1&0&0&0\\
13&1&1&0&1&1\\
14&1&1&1&0&1\\
15&1&1&1&1&0\\
\end{tabular}
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
This logic function can easily be put into a Karnaugh map by using the
\verb|\karnaughmap|-macro\footnote{Users of older versions of the macro
package will notice that the name has changed. Below you will find a
discussion of the changes between versions.}. It has five parameters: The
number of variables in the map, an identifier for the function, a list of
variable identifiers for the variables, and the list of values of $f$ for
each line in the function table. The variable identifiers in the third
parameter are ordered from highest to lowest significance (the same way as in
the function table, with $a$ having a significance of $2^3=8$ and $d$ having a
significance of $2^0=1$). The list of values of $f$ was read from lowest to
highest index. The fifth parameter remains empty in this example, it will be
discussed below:
\begin{verbatim}
\karnaughmap{4}{f(a,b,c,d):}{abcd}{1110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
This produces the following Karnaugh map, where the indices in the lower left
corner of each box correspond to the indices in the function
table:\footnote{The indices can easily be calculated from the variable values
in the function table, i.e. line 11: the index equals $a\cdot 2^3 + b\cdot
2^2 + c \cdot 2^1 + d \cdot 2^0=1\cdot 8 + 0\cdot 4 + 1 \cdot 2 + 1 \cdot
1=11$.}
\begin{center}
\karnaughmap{4}{f(a,b,c,d):}{abcd}{1110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
The macros work similar for Veitch charts:
\begin{verbatim}
\veitchchart{4}{f(a,b,c,d):}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
\begin{center}
\veitchchart{4}{f(a,b,c,d):}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
Notice the difference in the variable location in the diagrams. In my opinion
Karnaugh maps are much easier to use if you need to simplify a logic function;
therefore Veitch charts will not be discussed any further in this
document. Except otherwise noticed, the macros' syntax and functionality are
exactly the same for Karnaugh maps and Veitch charts.
The macros that read the variable list and the list of logic values
(i.e. parameters \#3 and \#4) work
recursively. Therefore, you have to take special care to supply the
correct number of tokens to print: If you supply a list of variable
identifiers or a list of logic values that contains fewer elements than needed
the macros will cause error messages similar to the following:
\begin{verbatim}
! Argument of \kvgetonechar has an extra }.
\par
l.201 }{}
?
\end{verbatim}
On the contrary, if any of the two lists is longer than
needed, \emph{you will not be notified!} Moreover, each entry has to be one
character long, otherwise --- like a variable identifier enclosed in \$s ---
you have to put it into braces:
\begin{verbatim}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f(a,b,c,d):$}{{$a$}{$b$}{$c$}{$d$}}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
This produces the following Karnaugh map:
\begin{center}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f(a,b,c,d):$}{{$a$}{$b$}{$c$}{$d$}}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
\section{Marking simplifications}
The already mentioned fifth parameter can be used if you want to draw
something inside the Karnaugh map. For example this is useful if you want to
show how you simplified a logic function:
\begin{verbatim}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f(a,b,c,d):$}{{$a$}{$b$}{$c$}{$d$}}%
{0110011001100110}%
{%
\put(0,2){\oval(1.9,1.9)[r]}
\put(4,2){\oval(1.9,1.9)[l]}
\put(2,0){\oval(1.9,1.9)[t]}
\put(2,4){\oval(1.9,1.9)[b]}
}
\end{verbatim}
The corresponding Karnaugh map looks like this:
\begin{center}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f(a,b,c,d):$}{{$a$}{$b$}{$c$}{$d$}}%
{0110011001100110}%
{%
\put(0,2){\oval(1.9,1.9)[r]}
\put(4,2){\oval(1.9,1.9)[l]}
\put(2,0){\oval(1.9,1.9)[t]}
\put(2,4){\oval(1.9,1.9)[b]}
}
\end{center}
You can use any of \LaTeX's graphics macros for this purpose. The Karnaugh map
has its pivot point at the lower left point\footnote{This is not exactly true,
but sufficient if you do not want to modify the macros.} and a unitlength that
is equal to the length of a single box within the Karnaugh map. Sometimes you
may find that the \verb|\oval|s that you want to draw inside a Karnaugh map are
slightly shifted to the right. This occurs if you use the \verb|eepic|-Package
in your document. In this case, make a copy of the \verb|eepic.sty| file,
rename it to something like \verb|myeepic.sty| and comment out the definition
of the \verb|\oval|-macro in your local copy. If you put this new
\verb|myeepic.sty| file somewhere into your \TeX's search path so that \TeX{}
can find it and you load it properly with e.g. \verb|\usepackage{myeepic}|,
you shouldn't experience any more trouble.
\section{Other features}
There are some more features that you can use. Possibly the most important is
that you can change the size of the diagrams by changing the size of the
boxes within the map, simply by typing:
\begin{verbatim}
\kvunitlength=15mm
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
This results in the following Karnaugh map. The setting of the
\verb|\kvunitlength| remains active until you change it again;\footnote{Or, of
course, until you leave the group in which you redefined the value. This
applies to all changeable parameters and macro definitions in this section!}
the default \verb|\kvunitlength| is 8\,mm:
\begin{center}
\kvunitlength=15mm
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
Another feature is that you can switch off the indices inside the map by
typing:
\begin{verbatim}
\kvnoindex
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
\begin{center}
\kvunitlength=8mm
\kvnoindex
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
This setting also remains active until you switch indexing on again using the
\verb|\kvindex|-macro:
\begin{verbatim}
\kvindex
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
\begin{center}
\kvindex
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
Usually, the font size of the map's contents and indices should be
suitable (the defaults are \verb|\tiny| for \verb|\kvindexsize| and
\verb|\normalsize| for \verb|\kvcontentsize|). If you want to change them, you
can do this by redefining the \verb|\kvcontentsize|- and
\verb|\kvindexsize|-macros (Preferably, you should do this in the preamble of
your document):
\begin{verbatim}
\renewcommand\kvindexsize{\footnotesize}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
\begin{center}
\renewcommand\kvindexsize{\footnotesize}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
In the same way you can also change the font family (Although I doubt that
this is sensible):
\begin{verbatim}
\renewcommand\kvindexsize{\footnotesize\it}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{verbatim}
\begin{center}
\renewcommand\kvindexsize{\footnotesize\it}
\karnaughmap{4}{$f:$}{abcd}{0110011001100110}{}
\end{center}
These macros are named \verb|\kvfoo|, because they work both for Karnaugh maps
and Veitch charts.
\section{If you use an older version of the macros\ldots}
\ldots{} you will certainly have noticed a number of changes. The most
important one is that I have changed the name of the macro that draws Karnaugh
maps from \verb|\kvmap| to \verb|\karnaughmap|. I suggest that you use the new
name in documents that you newly create. However, I introduced an alias so
that the old macro name still works:
\begin{verbatim}
\def\kvmap{\karnaughmap}
\end{verbatim}
Also, in some older versions tokens in the variable list or function table
that were longer than one character had to be enclosed in \emph{double} braces
(If you have used any of these versions you will certainly remember this
annoying feature). This is no longer necessary --- however, it does no
harm.
If you need to know more about the exact changes, please consult the revision
history in \verb|kvmacros.tex|.
\section{Final remarks}
This is all you need to know about the usage of my macros. I have tried them
out and I haven't yet found any serious bugs, but I'm pretty sure there are
plenty. In this case, or if you have comments or suggestions, please send me
an eMail. Anyway, I would very much appreciate if you would notify me when you
use my macros; I would like to know if they are of any use to somebody.
The maximum size map I could produce was a Karnaugh map with 10~variables;
with bigger maps I only exceeded \TeX's main memory. This is due to the
macros' recursive algorithm. Quite likely you will exceed \TeX's capacity with
even smaller maps if they occur in large documents, but I think no~one in his
right mind will ever use Karnaugh maps of more than 6\,variables, so I didn't
care about this problem.

%%
%% Change History:
%% August 04th, 1998: Original Version
%%
%% August 19th, 1998: Minor changes to make the lines within the maps look
%% better, also moved the variable identifiers from the right to the left and
%% added an identifier for the logic function; since then \kvmap has 5
%% instead of 4 parameters. I also included the documentation in an additional
%% Postscript-file.
%%
%% September 23rd, 1998: Fixed the problem with double braces by introducing
%% the \compdummy and \ende macros in the \ifx-comparisons (see below):
%% The parameters that are longer than one character do not have to be
%% enclosed in double braces any longer --- single braces are
%% sufficient. However, double braces will still be processed correctly.
%%
%% May 19th, 1999: Changed the documentation (which was months overdue) after
%% F. M. Brown pointed me to the incorrectness of the term
%% "Karnaugh-Veitch-map". Actually, the macros itself haven't
%% changed. Probably I should introduce macros for typesetting Veitch charts
%% as well (which would be a minor task). This version was actually never
%% released.
%%
%% May 25th, 1999: Introduced macros for Veitch charts
%% (\veitchfoo) and renamed the macros that are solely related to
%% Karnaugh maps from \kvfoo to \karnaughfoo. Introduced aliases for those
%% macros that are user-callable to maintain compatibility with older versions:
%% \kvmap -> \karnaughmap. However, \kvindex, \kvnoindex and \kvunitlength
%% haven't changed their names as they are related to both Karnaugh maps and
%% Veitch charts. Changed the (plain stupid) algorithm that processes the
%% variable-length arguments so that it takes much less time to produce large
%% maps. Several macros so became redundant and are no longer included. Also I
%% introduced \kvindexsize and \kvcontentsize to adjust the font size of the
%% indices and the contents of a diagram. They default to \tiny and
%% \normalsize.
%%
%% January 17th, 2001: Changed the eMail-address in the macro file and the
%% accompanying documentation and made minor changes to the documentation.
%%
%% January 7th, 2002: Exchanged the \xdef to \gdef in the definition of
%% \kvargumentstring and \kvgetonechar so that things like {\textbf 1} in the
%% argumentlist of \karnaughmap do not cause error messages any longer.
%% Thanks to Michal Medveck{\'y} for pointing me to this error.
%%
%%
%%
%% We need a fixed dimension for a single field in a Karnaugh map:
%%
\newdimen\kvunitlength
\kvunitlength=8mm
%%
%% We need a default font size for the indices:
%%
\newcommand{\kvindexsize}{\tiny}
%%
%% And we need a default size for the contents and variable identifiers:
%%
\newcommand{\kvcontentsize}{\normalsize}
%%
%% First, we have to introduce some counters:
%%
%% \kvrecursiondepth is used to control the recursion of the
%% \karnaughmakemap- and \veitchmakechart-macro.
%%
\newcount\kvrecursiondepth
%%
%% The \kvindexcounter is needed for the indices in the fields of the
%% diagrams.
%%
\newcount\kvindexcounter
%%
%% \kvxsize and \kvysize store the dimensions of an entire diagram.
%%
\newcount\kvxsize
\newcount\kvysize
%%
%% Some counters are necessary to compute the marks for the variable
%% identifiers:
%%
\newcount\kvvarno
\newcount\kvxvarno
\newcount\kvyvarno
\newcount\kvmarkstart
\newcount\kvmarklength
\newcount\kvmarknum
\newcount\kvmarkmove
%%
%% And we need a savebox to store the variable marks:
%%
\newsavebox\kvsavebox
%%
%% Single fields in a diagram should be indexed, which makes the map easier to
%% use. This is the default. If you don't want indices, simply call
%% \kvnoindex. If you want indices back, call \kvindex:
%%
\def\kvnoindex{%
\def\kvcurrentindex{}}
%%
\def\kvindex{%
\def\kvcurrentindex{%
\the\kvindexcounter\global\advance\kvindexcounter by 1}%
}
%%
\kvindex
%%
%% We need a macro that computes the powers of two:
%%
\def\kvpoweroftwo#1#2{% Computes #1=2^#2, both of which have to be counters
{\ifnum#2>0
\global\multiply#1 by 2
\advance#2 by -1
\kvpoweroftwo{#1}{#2}
\fi}}
%%
%% The macros \kvargumentstring, \kvgetchar and \kvgetonechar are needed to
%% process the variabe-length parameters in \karnaughmap and \veitchchart:
%%
\def\kvargumentstring#1{\gdef\kvdummystring{#1{}\noexpand\end}}
%%
\def\kvgetchar{\expandafter\kvgetonechar\kvdummystring}
%%
\def\kvgetonechar#1#2\end{{#1}\gdef\kvdummystring{#2\noexpand\end}}%
%%
%% The Macro \karnaughmakemap calls itself recursively until the parameter #1
%% equals 1, whereupon it returns a single token from the list of arguments,
%% enclosed in a \makebox plus the index (if enabled) in a smaller \makebox:
%%
\def\karnaughmakemap#1#2{{%
\kvrecursiondepth=\number#1
\ifnum\kvrecursiondepth>1
\divide\kvrecursiondepth by 2
\unitlength=\kvunitlength
\multiply\unitlength by \kvrecursiondepth
%%
\ifcase#2
%%
%% The parameter #2 of \karnaughmakemap is needed because the inner Karnaugh
%% maps need to be mirrored. This is achieved by the following case-statement,
%% which orders the inner Karnaugh maps properly:
