Circuits composed of threshold gates (McCulloch-Pitts neurons, or

perceptrons) are simplified models of neural circuits with the

advantage that they are theoretically more tractable than their

biological counterparts. However, when such threshold circuits are

designed to perform a specific computational task they usually

differ ...

For a Boolean function $f:\{0,1\}^n \to \{0,1\}$ computed by a circuit $C$ over a finite basis $\cal{B}$, the energy complexity of $C$ (denoted by $\mathbf{EC}_{{\cal B}}(C)$) is the maximum over all inputs $\{0,1\}^n$ the numbers of gates of the circuit $C$ (excluding the inputs) that output a one. Energy Complexity ... more >>>
