From the text: This paper deals with the comparison of Boolean bases (namely, finite complete systems of Boolean functions) with respect to the complexity of implementing Boolean functions by formulas over these bases. The complexity of a formula is the number of symbols of variables it contains. The complexity of a function $$f$$ (hereafter, Boolean function) over a basis $$B$$ is defined as the least complexity of formulas over $$B$$ that implement $$f$$.
