Cordially. Last edited by skipjack; June 3rd, 2017 at 02:49 AM.

One uses conjunction and exclusive OR. Let's denote conjunction as $\displaystyle \cdot$ and exclusive OR as +. Let $\displaystyle x_{i_1}x_{i_2}\cdot\ldots\cdot x_{i_t}$ be one of the monomials of the polynomial which represents $\displaystyle f$. Let $\displaystyle (a_1, \ \ldots,\ a_n)$ be an arbitrary vector of arguments. Every $\displaystyle a_j$ is equal to 0 or 1. Let suppose that there exists $\displaystyle \sigma \in S_n$ such that product (conjunction) $\displaystyle a_{\sigma(i_1)}\cdot\ \ldots\ \cdot a_{\sigma(i_t)}=1.$ And let $\displaystyle p$ be the number of units among $\displaystyle a_1, \ \ldots,\ a_n.$ The number of substitutions from $\displaystyle S_n$ which fixes algebraic relation $\displaystyle a_{\sigma(i_1)}\cdot\ \ldots\ \cdot a_{\sigma(i_t)}=1$ is equal to $\displaystyle \frac{p!}{(p-t)!}\cdot (n-t)!.$ The last number is even. So, it implies that $\displaystyle \sum_{\sigma\in S_n} a_{\sigma(i_1)}\cdot\ \ldots\ \cdot a_{\sigma(i_t)}\ {\rm mod}\ 2 = 0.$ And $\displaystyle \sum_{\sigma\in S_n} f(a_{\sigma(i_1)}, \ \ldots,\ a_{\sigma(i_n)})\ {\rm mod}\ 2 = 0.$
