This paper describes some representations of a mapping and their simplification. Any mapping from a finite set into another can be represented by a sequence of Boolean functinos if we encode its domain and range to finite binary sequences. The complexity of the representation depends on the encoding. We present a problem of finding an algorithm that derives one of the simplest representations of a given mapping, and solve it in a case where the complexity measure is determined according to the number of literals in disjunctive forms.
