An improved test of Boolean functions for -dimensionality / Alekseychuk A.N., Konyushok S. N. // Cybernetika i sistemny analiz.

A probabilistic test of Boolean functions for k-dimensionality is constructed. The test has a less time complexity and a smaller first kind error probability (with the same upper bound for the second kind error probability) in comparison with a well-known previously proposed test.
