A Fast Symbolic Transformation Based Algorithm for Reversible Logic Synthesis

We present a more concise formulation of the transformation based synthesis approach for reversible logic synthesis, which is one of the most prominent explicit ancilla-free synthesis approaches. Based on this formulation we devise a symbolic variant of the approach that allows one to find a circuit in shorter time using less memory for the function representation. We present both a BDD based and a SAT based implementation of the symbolic variant. Experimental results show that both approaches are significantly faster than the state-of-the-art method. We were able to find ancilla-free circuit realizations for large optimally embedded reversible functions for the first time.
