### Abstract

An innovative as well as illuminating approach for detection of total and multiform symmetric switching functions is proposed. This method is based on modulo-2 sum between existent parameters rather than using maps, charts or large tables. The invariant properties are being revealed by the set of true minterms in accordance with the logical construction of existent parameters resulting in the reduction of complexity in time-space domain.
