TL;DR: In this paper, a technique for obtaining the product of sum expression from the sum of product expression of a Boolean function is presented, where a tabular representation is made with the product terms and the variables present in the function specified in the sum-of-product form and appropriate rows of the table are combined to give different sum terms.
Abstract: A technique has been developed in this article for obtaining the ‘ product of sum ’ expression from the ‘ sum of product ’ expression of a Boolean function. In this technique, first a tabular representation is made with the product terms and the variables present in the function specified in the ‘ sum of product ’ form and then appropriate rows of the table are combined to give different sum terms. The idea of the technique has also been extended for obtaining the third-order minimal expression of a Boolean function.

TL;DR: In this article, a procedure for finding out the prime implicants and hence the minimal sum(s) of Boolean functions containing essential prime implcants, cyclic type prime implchants or functions with optional terms has been suggested.
Abstract: A procedure for finding out the prime implicants and hence the minimal sum(s) of Boolean functions containing essential prime implicants, cyclic type prime implicants or functions with optional terms has been suggested in this paper. The conception of the present procedure is based on the geometrical representation of Boolean functions. The procedure is also applicable for obtaining the prime implicants of a multiple output function.
