4 Boolean Algebra Branch of Algebra used for describing and designing two valued state variables Introduced by George Boole in 19 th centaury Shannon used it to design switching circuits (1938) Boolean Algebra Postulates An algebraic structure defined by a set of elements, B, together with two binary operators + and . that satisfy the following postulates: 1. Postulate 1: Closure with respect to both (.) and ( +) 2. Postulate 2: An identity element with respect to +, designated by 0. An identity element with respect to . designated by 1
5 Boolean Algebra - Postulates 3. Postulate 3: Commutative with respect to + and . 4. Postulate 4: Distributive over . and + 5. Postulate 5: For each element a of B, there exist an element a such that (a) a + a = 1 and (b) a.a = 0 6. Postulate 6: There exists at least two elements a, b in B, such that a b

6 Boolean Algebra - Postulates Postulates are facts that can be taken as true; they do not require proof We can show logic gates satisfy all the postulates 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 A OR 1 1 0 B 1 1 0 A+B 1 0 A 1 0 0 A AND 1 1 0 B 1 0 0 A.B 0 1 A NOT
7 Boolean Algebra - Theorems Theorems help us out in manipulating Boolean expressions They must be proven from the postulates and/or other already proven theorems Exercise Prove theorems from postulates/other proven theorems

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
