A binary-decision program is a program consisting of a string of two-address conditional transfer instructions. The paper shows the relationship between switching circuits and binary-decision programs and gives a set of simple rules by which one can transform binary-decision programs to switching circuits. It then shows that, in regard to the computation of switching functions, binary-decision programming representation is superior to the usual Boolean representation.
