We present the theoretical foundations of the many-valued
generalization of a technique for simplifying large non-clausal
formulas in propositional logic, that is called "removal of
anti-links". Possible applications of anti-links include computation
of prime implicates of large non-clausal formulas as required, for
example, in diagnosis. Anti-links do not compute any normal form of a
given formula themselves, rather, they remove certain forms of
redundancy from formulas in negation normal form (NNF). Their main
advantage is that no clausal normal form has to be computed in order
to remove redundant parts of a formula. In this paper, we define an
anti-link operation on a generic language for expressing many-valued
logic formulas called "signed NNF" and we show that all interesting
properties of two-valued anti-links generalize to the many-valued
setting, although in a non-trivial way.
