Concepts of Modern Mathematics by Ian Stewart In this charming volume, a noted English mathematician uses humor and anecdote to illuminate the concepts of groups, sets, subsets, topology, Boolean algebra, and other mathematical subjects. 200 illustrations.
Boolean Algebra and Its Applications by J. Eldon Whitesitt Introductory treatment begins with set theory and fundamentals of Boolean algebra, proceeding to concise accounts of applications to symbolic logic, switching circuits, relay circuits, binary arithmetic, and probability theory. 1961 edition.
Boolean Algebra by R. L. Goodstein This elementary treatment by a distinguished mathematician employs Boolean algebra as a simple medium for introducing important concepts of modern algebra. Numerous examples appear throughout the text, plus full solutions.
A systematic treatment of Boolean reasoning, this concise, newly revised edition combines the works of early logicians with recent investigations, including previously unpublished research results. For the benefit of readers without formal training in mathematics, the text starts with an overview of elementary mathematical concepts and outlines the theory of Boolean algebras, based on Huntington's postulate. It defines operators for elimination, division, and expansion, providing a coherent and systematic basis for subsequent discussions of syllogistic reasoning, the solution of Boolean equations, and functional deduction. Examples and end-of-chapter problems appear throughout the book, many taken from the design for switching systems. Two concluding chapters deal with applications; one applies Boolean reasoning to diagnostic problems, and the other discusses the design of multiple-output logic-circuits.
