We investigate the complexity of the Boolean clone membership problem (CMP): given a set of Boolean functions $F$ and a Boolean function $f$, determine if $f$ is in the clone generated by $F$, i.e., if it can be expressed by a circuit with $F$-gates. Here, $f$ and elements of $F$ are given as circuits or formulas over the usual De Morgan basis... (read more)
