This paper is a survey and classification of a number of factors that relate directly to cost in the computer engineering design of arithmetic units. The general factors considered are inputs, gates, thresholds, algebras, inputs versus gates, values, reliability, implementability, and complexity. The paper contains some recent logic calculations by the author on gate versus input counts and reduction of complexity in the case of ternary logic.
