**Abstract:**

The max-plus algebra is one of the frameworks that can be used to
model discrete event systems. One of the open problems in the
max-plus-algebraic system theory for discrete event systems is the
minimal realization problem. In this paper we present some results for
a simplified version of the general minimal realization problem: the
boolean minimal realization problem, i.e., we consider models in which
the entries of the system matrices are either equal to the
max-plus-algebraic zero element or to the max-plus-algebraic identity
element.
