A Boolean function is a mapping from the set of all binary n-tuples to the set {0, 1}. Boolean functions are important building blocks in designing secure cryptosystems known as stream ciphers. Boolean functions also form an important class of linear codes, known as the Reed-Muller codes. Over the last few decades, a lot of research has been done on Boolean function for its applications in cryptography and coding theory.
