English mathematician George Boole was an educator, academic

and logician. He operated in the fields of distinction algebraic logic and

equations. He is well known as writer of “The Laws of Thought” which is Boolean

algebra. He was born on November 2, 1815 at Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England and

died on December 8, 1864 at Ballintemple, County Cork, Ireland.

His first lesson in mathematics was by his father who was a tradesman.

He taught him also how to make visual apparatuses. Along with his father’s

teaching and limited time at local schools, Boole taught himself mathematics. His

father’s trade declined and so he had to work to maintain his family. As early

as age 16 George taught in community schools in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

He started his own school in Lincoln when he was 20 years of age. He worked as the head of the

school from 1849 to 1864. He taught mathematics as professor at Queen’s

University in Cork, Ireland.

He helped launch the current symbolic logic and algebra of

logic which is called Boolean algebra which is the basic design of digital

computer circuits. In computer science,

the Boolean information

type is a data type which has two values namely denoted true and false projected

to signify the truth principles of logic and Boolean algebra. The theory is named after George Boole because he was the initial person

who defined an algebraic system of logic in the 19th era.

Boolean theory works is the basis of mathematical sets and database logic. They connect your search words

together to either narrow or broaden your search results. Boolean

theory works are words such as AND, OR, NOT or AND NOT used as combinations to join or omit

keywords in internet searches which results many concentrated and fruitful outcomes.

He stated also that Proximity Operators such

as with, near and others can also

help in internet searches.

George Boole was the first person to submit his findings

which were the first papers to the new Cambridge

Mathematical Journal in 1839. His title for the paper was “Researches on

the Theory of Analytical Transformations.” These papers theory is the

basis on differential equations and

the algebraic difficult of linear conversion underlining the theory of invariance. Also in 1844, he

submitted a vital paper on the “Philosophical Transactions” to the Royal Society

for this he was given the Royal Society’s first gold medal for mathematics.

George in developing countless concepts on logical process he

was confident in his symbolic insightfulness he had gotten from his

mathematical trials. In 1847 he issued a pamphlet on “Mathematical Analysis of

Logic,” stating convincingly that logic is linked with mathematics not philosophy.

When George was 35 years of age he met his wife, Mary Everest

in 1850 who was 18 years of age, when she visited her uncle, John Ryall who was

a friend of his. George and Mary corresponded for two years and their friendship

blossoms. George visited Mary at Wick war, where he gave Mary lessons in mathematics;

she had a profound love for mathematics also. They did not meet regularly but they continued

to correspond about mathematical topics. Mary’s father in 1855 died, leaving her

poor. George Boole took responsibility for her and although their ages were far

apart and the difficulties they shared their friendship grew. They married in

the Church of England Parish Church of Wickwar. It was a happy, but regrettably

a short matrimony. They had five children which were all girls.
