Discrete Structures 2 [Lecture 15][Boolean Algebra] Boolean Algebra Invented by and named after George Boole. Commonly, and especially in computer science and digital electronics, this term is used to mean two-value logic . Provide the operations and rules for working with the set {0,1}. Map logical propositions to symbols. Permit manipulation of logic statements using Mathematics. Invented by and named after George Boole. Commonly, and especially in computer science and digital electronics, this term is used to mean two-value logic . Provide the operations and rules for working with the set {0,1}. Map logical propositions to symbols. Permit manipulation of logic statements using Mathematics. Definition: A Boolean algebra written as ( B , +, . , , 0, 1), consists of a set B containing distinct elements 0 and 1, binary operators + and . on B , and a unary operator on B , such that the identity laws, complement laws, associative laws, commutative laws and distributive laws holds.

Discrete Structures 4 [Lecture 15][Boolean Algebra] Note: 0 and 1 in the previous definition are merely symbolic names. In general, they have nothing to do with the numbers 0 and 1. + and are merely binary operators. In general, they have nothing to do with the ordinary addition and multiplication. Some examples of Boolean algebras are (a) ({ 0, 1 }, , , , 0, 1 ) (b) ( P(U) , , , f8e5 , , U ) where (i) and plays the role of +. (ii) and plays the role of . (iii) and f8e5 plays the role of complement. (iv) plays the role of 0 and the universal set U plays the role of 1. Note: 0 and 1 in the previous definition are merely symbolic names.

### 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.
