Collapsing terms in statistical static timing analysis

Statistically modeling timing in a digital circuit through the use of canonical form models, where some terms of the form represent sources of variation sensitive to only a subset of timing regions of the circuit. When propagating the form through regions through which some set of terms in the model is not sensitive, those terms are collapsed by placing them in a cache and replacing them in the form with a single combined term that references the cached terms..
