Regular ternary logic functions are one of the most useful special classes of Kleenean functions, and a lot of research has been done on them. However, there has been little work done on incompletely specified regular ternary logic functions. This paper describes the following points: (1) Minimization of incompletely specified regular ternary logic functions. (2) A new definition of incompletely specified fuzzy switching functions and their minimization. (Concretely speaking, minimal disjunctive forms of incompletely specified fuzzy switching functions are represented in formulas of regular ternary logic functions. ) (3) Their application to fuzzy logic circuits such as fuzzy PLAs of AND-OR type.
