1. The Mathematics Of Boolean Algebra
JUL 5 2002. The Mathematics of boolean algebra. On the other hand, the theory of a boolean algebra with a distinguished subalgebra is undecidable.
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/boolalg-math/

Extractions: JUL A Boolean algebra (BA) is a set A together with binary operations + and and a unary operation , and elements 0, 1 of A such that the following laws hold: commutative and associative laws for addition and multiplication, distributive laws both for multiplication over addition and for addition over multiplication, and the following special laws: x + (x y) = x

2. Boolean Algebra
boolean algebra. The following table contains just a few rules that hold in a boolean algebra, written in both set and logic notation.
http://www.math.csusb.edu/notes/sets/boole/boole.html

Extractions: Previous: Return to notes A Boolean algebra is a set with two binary operations, and , that are commutative, associative and each distributes over the other, plus a unary operation . Also required are identity elements and U for the binary operations that satisfy and for all elements A in the set. One interpretation of Boolean algebra is the collection of subsets of a fixed set X . We take and U to be set union, set intersection, complementation, the empty set and the set X respectively. Equality here means the usual equality of sets. Another interpretation is the calculus of propositions in symbolic logic. Here we take and U to be disjunction, conjunction, negation, a fixed contradiction and a fixed tautology respectively. In this setting equality means logical equivalence. It is not surprising then that we find analogous properties and rules appearing in these two areas. For example, the axiom of the distributive properties says that for sets we have while is a familiar equivalence in logic. From the axioms above one can prove DeMorgan's Laws (in some axiom sets this is included as an axiom). The following table contains just a few rules that hold in a Boolean algebra, written in both set and logic notation. Rows 3 and 4 are DeMorgan's Laws. Note that the two versions of these rules are identical in structure, differing only in the choice of symbols.

3. What's So Logical About Boolean Algebra?
boolean algebra, a simple explanation
http://www.kerryr.net/pioneers/boolean.htm

Extractions: What's So Logical About Boolean Algebra? George Boole believed in what he called the process of analysis, 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 true calculus. Today, all our computers employ Boole's logic system - using microchips that contain thousands of tiny electronic switches arranged into logical gates 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, one-zero 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. OR gates are less fussy. An

This constantly requires that complex logical expressions be reduced to simpler expressions that nevertheless produce the same results under all possible conditions. The simpler expression can then be implemented with a smaller, simpler circuit, which in turn saves the price of the unnecessary gates, reduces the number of gates needed, and reduces the power and the amount of space required by those gates. One tool to reduce logical expressions is the mathematics of logical expressions, introduced by George Boole in 1854 and known today as

Extractions: Next: Desirable Circuit Properties Up: Logic Design Previous: Truth Tables Boolean algebra provides the ability to work with many interesting functions while often using significantly less space than a truth table. We will informally prove that boolean algebra can describe all boolean functions - this justifies our use of gates since they correspond to the building blocks of boolean algebra. Boolean expressions have the following grammar. That is, a boolean expression can be a variable (representing an input wire), the negation of a boolean expression (NOT and ), the conjunction of two boolean expressions (AND and ) or the disjunction of two boolean expressions (OR and ). Boolean expressions and circuits are interchangeable though circuits are generally smaller since they may share common subexpressions. Given a truth table for a function (one always exists), we can generate a boolean expression for the same function. We can do so in the following fashion. Each line of the truth table corresponds to a particular assignment of variables. For each assignment with output true (or one), generate an expression that is true for that assignment and no others. For example, F F F T T This assignment corresponds to the expression . After generating all of these expressions, form the disjunction (OR) of all these expressions. This disjunction is the same as the function of the truth table.

9. Discovering The Basic Rules Of Boolean Algebra
Discovering the Basic Rules of boolean algebra. These two rules that you have discovered are known as the associative laws of boolean algebra. Example 1.
http://educ.queensu.ca/~compsci/units/BoolLogic/assocdistrib.html

Extractions: Consider the Boolean expression A + B + C. Does it matter which OR you evaluate first? Verify your answer using truth tables and then express your discovery using Boolean algebra notation. Now consider the Boolean expression A B C. Does it matter which AND is evaluated first? Once again verify your answer using truth tables and then express your discovery using Boolean algebra notation. These two rules that you have discovered are known as the associative laws of Boolean algebra. Example 1 To get into a physics program in university, Samantha needs to have OAC physics and either OAC algebra or OAC calculus. Assign Boolean variables to the conditions and write a Boolean expression for the program requirements. We will get you started: Let P represent whether or not Samantha has OAC physics. Another way of stating the conditions for the physics program is that Samantha needs OAC physics and OAC algebra, or OAC physics and OAC calculus. Using the same Boolean variables as above, write a Boolean expression for the program requirements. Since both of these expressions refer to the same situation the Boolean expressions must be equal. Verify this statement by comparing the truth tables for the expressions.

14. Boolean Algebraic Identities - Chapter 7: BOOLEAN ALGEBRA - Volume IV - Digital
boolean algebraic identities. Like ordinary algebra, boolean algebra has its own unique identities based on the bivalent states of Boolean variables.

Extractions: All About Circuits Volume IV - Digital Chapter 7: BOOLEAN ALGEBRA Boolean algebraic identities In mathematics, an identity is a statement true for all possible values of its variable or variables. The algebraic identity of x + = x tells us that anything (x) added to zero equals the original "anything," no matter what value that "anything" (x) may be. Like ordinary algebra, Boolean algebra has its own unique identities based on the bivalent states of Boolean variables. The first Boolean identity is that the sum of anything and zero is the same as the original "anything." This identity is no different from its real-number algebraic equivalent: No matter what the value of A, the output will always be the same: when A=1, the output will also be 1; when A=0, the output will also be 0.

Extractions: Introduction Laws of Boolean Algebra Commutative Law Associative Law ... On-line Quiz The most obvious way to simplify Boolean expressions is to manipulate them in the same way as normal algebraic expressions are manipulated. With regards to logic relations in digital forms, a set of rules for symbolic manipulation is needed in order to solve for the unknowns. A set of rules formulated by the English mathematician George Boole describe certain propositions whose outcome would be either true or false . With regard to digital logic, these rules are used to describe circuits whose state can be either, 1 (true) or (false) . In order to fully understand this, the relation between the AND gate OR gate and NOT gate operations should be appreciated. A number of rules can be derived from these relations as Table 1 demonstrates. P1: X = or X = 1

Extractions: William Fleissner started his research in set theory, in particular, consistency results in general topology. After focusing on the normal Moore space conjecture and related topics, he became interested in many areas of set theoretic topology. Recently, he has studied "projective properties" for example, the questions, "If all continuous Tychonoff images of space are realcompact, must the space be Lindelof?" and "What can be said about spaces all of whose regular images are normal?" Two topics of current research are D-spaces and subspaces of the product of finitely many ordinals.

20. Boolean Algebra - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
boolean algebra. Specifically, boolean algebra was an attempt to use algebraic techniques to deal with expressions in the propositional calculus.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boolean_algebra

Extractions: In mathematics and computer science Boolean algebras , or Boolean lattices , are algebraic structures which "capture the essence" of the logical operations AND OR and NOT as well as the set theoretic operations union intersection and complement They are named after George Boole , an English mathematician, 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 structures ) and represent NOT by a line drawn above the expression being negated.
