We currently have for questions about Karnaugh maps. Is this the best possible tag name? Would be a better choice?

For that matter, would a more general tag like be more appropriate than either of those? I don't see a compelling reason to have a tag that covers Karnaugh maps but not, e.g., Quine-McCluskey or other methods for achieving the same goal. Any opinions?

    $\begingroup$ karnaugh-map is explicit, so it looks much better to me. $\endgroup$ – Juho Dec 21 '15 at 21:56
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know the term "logic synthesis" so I can not comment on it's potential as a tag. Ditching k-map in favor of karnaugh-map seem to be a no-brainer for me, it's clearly inferior. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Dec 27 '15 at 15:22
  • $\begingroup$ I notice that there are no questions with k-map anymore. Have you edited to change old questions to the longer tag? $\endgroup$ – Raphael Dec 29 '15 at 12:16
  • $\begingroup$ @Raphael, yes, I re-tagged them based on the suggestions here. Your synonym proposal is a great idea. $\endgroup$ – D.W. Dec 29 '15 at 16:28
  • $\begingroup$ @D.W. You may want to keep that in mind for future tag action. Creating the new tag, add the old one as synonym and then merging them (if appropriate) "retags" all questions without bumping them. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Dec 29 '15 at 17:35

I don't see a compelling reason to have a tag that covers Karnaugh maps but not, e.g., Quine-McCluskey or other methods for achieving the same goal.

If you want to follow that logic, we should just tag everything "computer science" and nuke all the other tags. There's nothing wrong with having a tag for the specific subject of Karnaugh maps, since people ask questions specifically about them.

But I agree that Karnaugh-map is vastly preferable to k-map.

Since people have started using , I have created a synonym proposal.

  • $\begingroup$ No voices against, so I'm mod-approving the synonym. (There are likely not enough users with sufficient tag-rep to upvote it.) $\endgroup$ – Raphael Feb 17 '16 at 0:03
