Editorial Review Product Description This introduction to Boolean algebra begins with an intuitive approach to set theory and an axiomatic account of the fundamentals of Boolean algebra, proceeding to concise accounts of applications to symbolic logic, switching circuits, relay circuits, binary arithmetic, and probability theory. Answers to selected problems appear at the end. 1961 edition. Customer Reviews (3)
Boolean Algebra and Its Applications
Boolean Algebra Targeted toward math and computerscience undergraduates and to a certain extent electrical engineeringtypes, the book progresses like a math course. It gives the greatestemphasis to the key topics (like the title) and builds on the most basicsub-topics. In Boolean Algebra, that sub-topic is Set Theory. Thereforethis book requires a level of thinking beyond the ordinary, but once youunderstand Set Theory, the rest is easy. And to make it easier on thereader, the lessons on Set Theory are totally intuitive, assuming thereader has at least taken algebra.

Editorial Review Product Description This book is an informal, although systematic presentation of lectures given by the authors on Boolean algebras, intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. In a bold and refreshing style, this book treats Boolean algebras, develops some intriguing ideas, and provides rare insights. Exercises are generously sprinkled throughout the text for course study. This book can be considered a sequel to Paul Halmos's Lectures on Boolean Algebras, with the following changes: (1) the material in every section has been explained in more detail, and is now more accessible to undergraduates; (2) there are three times as many exercises, and the authors have now prepared a solutions manual; (3) a more careful explanation of the relationship between Boolean rings and Boolean algebras has been added; (4) thirteen chapters have been added, including chapters on topology and on continuous functions, a chapter on the extension theorem for homomorphisms, a new chapter on congruences and quotient algebras, a chapter on the lattice of ideals, and a chapter on duality theory for products.

Superb introduction. (Contains one flaw.) Some people draw a sharp distinction between the concepts of "Boolean space" (a totally disconnected compact Hausdorff space) and "Stone space", the difference being that a Stone space is the Stone space _of_ a Boolean algebra. A Boolean algebra's Stone space is the space of all of its 2-valued homomorphisms with the topology of pointwise convergence of nets of such homomorphisms. That every Boolean space is the Stone space of some Boolean algebra (namely, the Boolean algebra of all of its clopen subsets) is one of the important facts of "Stone's duality". Halmos never mentions the phrase "Stone space", but he proves the basic facts about "Stone's duality": that the category of Boolean algebras and Boolean homomorphisms is the opposite of the category of Boolean spaces and continuous functions. The flaw is in Lecture 21. Much of that section is founded upon an error -- that a Boolean algebra may have various non-isomorphic completions, of which one is "minimal". A careful mathematician can reconstruct that lecture and get much that is of value, but some may be unfortunately misled. One other thing irritates me: Halmos uses the word "non-atomic" rather than the much better term "atomless". The problem with "non-atomic" is that it may be mistaken for "not atomic", and that is a quite different thing. This book is now out of print. I'd like to see Dover reprint it.
