Boolean algebra جبر ِ بولی jabr-e Booli (#)
*Fr.: algèbre de Boole*
Any of a number of possible systems of mathematics that deals with
→ *binary digit*s instead of numbers. In Boolean algebra,
a binary value of 1 is interpreted to mean → *true* and
a binary value of 0 means → *false*. Boolean algebra
can equivalently be thought of as a particular type of mathematics that deals
with → *truth value*s instead of numbers. → *Boolean*; → *algebra*.
The term *Boolean algebra* was first suggested by Sheffer in 1913. |
