Theory Seminar: Minimizing the Expected Cost of Evaluating Boolean Functions

Consider the following problem: A company produces units of a product that undergo tests before being shipped. Individual tests have different costs, and test outcomes are binary. Certain combinations of test outcomes disqualify a unit from being shipped, and testing of the unit can stop as soon as such a combination is detected. Determine the optimal order in which to perform the tests so as to minimize expected testing cost.
