##### What's so logical about boolean algebra?
George Boole believed in what he called the Âprocess of analysisÂ, that is, the process by which combinations of interpretable symbols are obtained. It is the use of these symbols according to well-determined methods of combination that he believed presented Âtrue calculusÂ. Today, all our computers employ Boole's logic system - using microchips that contain thousands of tiny electronic switches arranged into logical ÂgatesÂ that produce predictable and reliable conclusions. The basic logic gates comprise of AND OR and NOT . It is these gates, used in differing combinations, that allow the computer to execute its operations using binary language. Each gate assesses various information (consisting of high or low voltages) in accordance with predetermined rules, and produces a single high or low voltage logical conclusion. The voltage itself represents the binary yes-no, true-false, zero-one concept. AND gates will only yield a TRUE result (that is, a binary 1) if all input is TRUE. Therefore, the top two gates will produce a FALSE (binary 0) result.

##### Boolean Algebra
Boolean algebra is a system of algebra (named after the mathematician who studied it, George Boole) based on only two numbers, and 1, commonly thought of as ``false'' and ``true.'' Binary numbers and Boolean algebra are natural to use with modern digital computers, which deal with switches and electrical currents which are either on or off. (In fact, binary numbers and Boolean algebra aren't just natural to use with modern digital computers, they are the fundamental basis of modern digital computers.) There are four arithmetic operators in Boolean algebra: NOT, AND, OR, and EXCLUSIVE OR. NOT takes one operand (that is, applies to a single value) and negates it: NOT is 1, and NOT 1 is 0. AND takes two operands, and yields a true value if both of its operands are true: 1 AND 1 is 1, but AND 1 is 0, and AND is 0. OR takes two operands, and yields a true value if either of its operands (or both) are true: OR is 0, but OR 1 is 1, and 1 OR 1 is 1. EXCLUSIVE OR, or XOR, takes two operands, and yields a true value if one of its operands, but not both, is true: XOR is 0, XOR 1 is 1, and 1 XOR 1 is 0.

1. Commonly, and especially in computer science and digital electronics, this term is used to mean two-valued logic
2. This is in stark contrast with the definition used by pure mathematicians who in the 1960s introduced "Boolean-valued models" into logic precisely because a "Boolean-valued model" is an interpretation of a theory that allows more than two possible truth values!
Strangely, a Boolean algebra (in the mathematical sense) is not strictly an algebra , but is in fact a lattice . A Boolean algebra is sometimes defined as a "complemented distributive lattice
Boole's work which inspired the mathematical definition concerned algebras of set s, involving the operations of intersection, union and complement on sets. Such algebras obey the following identities where the operators ^, V, - and constants 1 and can be thought of either as set intersection, union, complement, universal, empty; or as two-valued logic AND, OR, NOT, TRUE, FALSE; or any other conforming system.

• Introduction
• Basic Logic Gates
##### Introduction
In working with logic relations in digital form, we need a set of rules for symbolic manipulation which will enable us to simplify complex expressions and solve for unknowns. Originally, Boolean algebra which was formulated by George Boole , an English mathematician (1815-1864) described propositions whose outcome would be either true or false . In computer work it is used in addition to describe circuits whose state can be either 1 (true) or (false) .Using the relations defined in the AND, OR and NOT operation, a number of postulates are stated in Table 2.1 [Ref.3]
• P1 : X = or X = 1

##### Basic Boolean Theorems
Table 2.2 provides the basic Boolean theorems. Each theorem is described by two parts that are duals of each other.
##### Principle of duality
1. Interchanging the OR and AND operations of the expression.
2. Interchanging the and 1 elements of the expression.

##### Boolean algebra
In mathematics and computer science Boolean algebras , or Boolean lattices , are algebraic structure s which "capture the essence" of the logic al operations AND OR and NOT as well as the set theoretic operations union intersection and complement They are named after George Boole , an Englishman, who first defined them as part of a system of logic in the mid 19th century . Specifically, Boolean algebra was an attempt to use algebraic techniques to deal with expressions in the propositional calculus . Today, Boolean algebras find many applications in electronic design. They were first applied to switching by Claude Shannon in the 20th century The operators of Boolean algebra may be represented in various ways. Often they are simply written as AND, OR and NOT. In describing circuits, NAND (NOT AND), NOR (NOT OR) and XOR (exclusive OR) may also be used. Mathematicians often use + for OR and . for AND (since in some ways those operations are analogous to addition and multiplication in other algebraic structure s) and represent NOT by a line drawn above the expression being negated.

##### Boolean Algebra
Leibniz initiated the search for a system of symbols with rules of their combination in his De Arte Combinatoria of 1666, as well as developing the binary notation. In 1854, George Boole Professor of Mathematics at Cork from 1849 despite having no first degree, formalised a set of such rules in the seminal work entitled, perhaps optimistically, An Investigation of the Laws of Thought . Boole's aim was to identify the rules of reasoning in a rigorous framework and revolutionised formal logic after thousands of years of little progress. They transformed logic from a philosophical into a mathematical discipline. These rules have subsequently become known as Boolean algebra and the design of all modern binary digital computers has depended on the results of this work. These logical operations, normally implemented as electronic gates , are all that are required to perform more complicated operations such as arithmetic.
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
, a Mathematics Lecturer at Christ Church Oxford from 1855 to 1881, was influenced by the work of Boole. He had a general interest in algebra and also teaching. In May 1855 he noted in his diary:

 NebulaSearch Home NebulaSearch Encyclopedia Top Boolean algebra Main Index Automated_Alice/IV..................City_of_Schleswig Bofry..................Brigitte_Boisselier Boojum..................Border_Ranges_National_Park Boolean algebra NebulaSearch article for Boolean algebra Explain to me why the word "lattice" has to be mentioned in an article called "Boolean algebra" at all. For Chrissakes, Boole isn't even mentioned in the article! Sheesh! , who would have to go back to his books to set things right. Because that's what a Boolean algebra is - a kind of lattice. Which would be more important in a page on platypuses - to mention they were discovered by sir so-and-so, or to mention they are a type of monotreme? Not that we shouldn't have both, but we aren't normally that impatient. Well, Boole himself probably wouldn't understand the article about Boolean algebra in its present form. And it omits all sorts of totally essential information to understanding what Boolean algebra is. Have a look at [http://www.encyclopedia.com/articles/01674.html this], and compare the article in its present form. I can have read Boole's formulation of Boolean algebra and understand it, without understanding our present BooleanAlgebra article. I think there's something wrong with that, particularly in an encyclopedia that attempts to explain concepts. This is, as always, MHO!

Explicitly, a Boolean algebra is the partial order on subsets defined by inclusion (Skiena 1990, p. 207), i.e., the Boolean algebra b A ) of a set A is the set of subsets of A that can be obtained by means of a finite number of the set operations union OR intersection AND ), and complementation NOT ) (Comtet 1974, p. 185). A Boolean algebra also forms a lattice (Skiena 1990, p. 170), and each of the elements of b A ) is called a Boolean function . There are Boolean functions in a Boolean algebra of order n (Comtet 1974, p. 186).
