Maurice Karnaugh introduced it in   as a refinement of Edward Veitch 's Veitch chart ,   which actually was a rediscovery of Allan Marquand 's logical diagram  aka Marquand diagram'  but with a focus now set on its utility for switching circuits. The Karnaugh map reduces the need for extensive calculations by taking advantage of humans' pattern-recognition capability. The required Boolean results are transferred from a truth table onto a two-dimensional grid where, in Karnaugh maps, the cells are ordered in Gray code ,   and each cell position represents one combination of input conditions, while each cell value represents the corresponding output value. Optimal groups of 1s or 0s are identified, which represent the terms of a canonical form of the logic in the original truth table. Karnaugh maps are used to simplify real-world logic requirements so that they can be implemented using a minimum number of physical logic gates. Boolean conditions, as used for example in conditional statements , can get very complicated, which makes the code difficult to read and to maintain.

The Karnaugh map , also known as a Veitch diagram KV-map or K-map for short , is a tool to facilitate the simplification of Boolean algebra IC expressions. The Karnaugh map reduces the need for extensive calculations by taking advantage of human pattern-recognition and permitting the rapid identification and elimination of potential race hazards.
