Abstract Let <?Pub Fmt italic>M(m,n)<?Pub Fmt /italic> be the minimum number of comparatorsneeded in a comparator network that merges <?Pub Fmt italic>m<?Pub Fmt /italic> elements x1≤x2≤&cdots;≤xm Our proof technique extends to give similarily tight lower bounds for the size of monotone Boolean circuits for merging, and for the size of switching networks capable of realizing the set of permutations that arise from merging.
