In an incompletely specified function f, donpsilat care values can be chosen to minimize the number of variables to represent f. It is shown that, in incompletely specified functions with k 0psilas and k 1psilas, the probability that f can be represented with only p = 2[log2(k + 1)] variables is greater than e-1 = 0.36788. In the case of multiple-output functions, where only the outputs for k input combinations are specified, most functions can be represented with at most p = 2[log2(k+1)] -1 variables. Experimental data is shown to support this. Because of this property, an IP address table can be realized with a small amount of memory.
