Relations among banyan multistage interconnection networks (MINs) of differing switch sizes are studied. If two N×N networks W and W' have switch sizes r and s, respectively, and if r>s, then W realizes a larger number of permutations than W'. Consequently, the two networks can never be equivalent. However, W may realize all the permutations of W', in which case W is said to functionally cover W' in the strict sense. More generally, W is said to functionally cover W' in the wide sense if the terminals of W can be relabeled so that W realizes all the permutations of W'. Functional covering is topologically characterized, and an optimal algorithm to decide strict functional covering is developed
