Abstract

We develop a theory of function tables, similar to and inspired by, that given in the work of D. Parnas. We consider, in particular, two classes of function tables: normal and inverted. We study effective transformations between tables of these two classes, as well as transformations which change the dimension of a table. We also consider the interrelationship between these three types of transformation.
