Accounting Dictionary: Boolean Algebra Home > Library > Business & Finance > Accounting Dictionary The algebra of logic. It is sometimes called symbolic logic. Boolean algebra is a method of expressing logic in a mathematical context. It is primarily concerned with binary operations and based on the cumulative, associative, and distributive laws of binary operations. Boolean algebra provides the theoretical concepts for computer design. It is not used to solve managerial problems directly.

Britannica Concise Encyclopedia: Boolean algebra Home > Library > Miscellaneous > Britannica Concise Encyclopedia Symbolic system used for designing logic circuits and networks for digital computers. Its chief utility is in representing the truth value of statements, rather than the numeric quantities handled by ordinary algebra. It lends itself to use in the binary system employed by digital computers, since the only possible truth values, true and false, can be represented by the binary digits 1 and 0. A circuit in computer memory can be open or closed, depending on the value assigned to it, and it is the integrated work of such circuits that give computers their computing ability. The fundamental operations of Boolean logic, often called Boolean operators, are "and," "or," and "not"; combinations of these make up 13 other Boolean operators.

Philosophy Dictionary: Boolean algebra Home > Library > History, Politics & Society > Philosophy Dictionary A Boolean algebra is a system consisting of a set S and two operations, ∩ and ∪ (cap and cup), subject to the following axioms. For all sets a,b,c, that are members of S: 1 a ∩ (b ∩ c) = (a ∩ b) ∩ c. Also a ∪ (b ∪ c) = (a ∪ b) ∪ c (associativity) 2 a ∩ b = b ∩ a. Also a ∪ b = b ∪ a (commutativity) 3 a ∩ (b ∪ c) = (a ∩ b) ∪ (a ∩ c). Also a ∪ (b ∩ c) = (a ∪ b) ∩ (a ∪ c) (distributivity) 4 There belong to S two elements, 0 and 1, with the properties

a ∪ 0 = a; a ∩ 1 = a (identity) 5 For each set a in S there exists a set a′ with the properties that a ∪ aprime; = 1, a ∩ aprime; = 0 (complementation). The propositional calculus can be represented as a Boolean algebra, with ∩ representing &, ∪ representing ∨, and 1 = T, 0 = F. The Boolean operators are then the truth functors, such as &, ∨, and ¬. A Boolean search is a search for things meeting a condition defined with these operators.

Columbia Encyclopedia: Boolean algebra Home > Library > Miscellaneous > Columbia Encyclopedia (bū'lēən) , an abstract mathematical system primarily used in computer science and in expressing the relationships between sets (groups of objects or concepts). The notational system was developed by the English mathematician George Boole c.1850 to permit an algebraic manipulation of logical statements. Such manipulation can demonstrate whether or not a statement is true and show how a complicated statement can be rephrased in a simpler, more convenient form without changing its meaning. In his 1881 treatise, Symbolic Logic, the English logician and mathematician John Venn interpreted Boole's work and introduced a new method of diagramming Boole's notation; this was later refined by the English mathematician Charles Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll—this method is now know as the Venn diagram. When used in set theory, Boolean notation can demonstrate the relationship between groups, indicating what is in each set alone, what is jointly contained in both, and what is contained in neither. Boolean algebra is of significance in the study of information theory, the theory of probability, and the geometry of sets. The expression of electrical networks in Boolean notation has aided the development of switching theory and the design of computers.

duality principle

Sci-Tech Dictionary:

duality principle
Sponsored Links Rene Descartes Research Online books, journals for academic research, plus bibliography tools. www.Questia.com/Rene_Descartes Home > Library > Science > Sci-Tech Dictionary (dü′al·əd·ē ′prin·sə·pəl)
Also known as principle of duality. (electricity) The principle that for any theorem in electrical circuit analysis there is a dual theorem in which one replaces quantities with dual quantities; current and voltage, impedance and admittance, and meshes and nodes are examples of dual quantities. (electronics) The principle that analogies may be drawn between a transistor circuit and the corresponding vacuum tube circuit. (electromagnetism) The principle that one can obtain new solutions of Maxwell's equations from known solutions by replacing E with H, H with -E, ε with μ, and μ with ε. (mathematics) A principle that if a theorem is true, it remains true if each object and operation is replaced by its dual; important in projective geometry and Boolean algebra. (quantum mechanics) wave-particle duality
