George Boole

Boole’s work redefined 19th-century mathematics and would revolutionize computer programming over a century later.

A mathematician and founder of Boolean logic, George Boole guided existing algebraic thought while improving longstanding Aristotelian methods. While Boole himself wasn't an engineer, his work redefined 19th-century mathematics and would revolutionize computer programming over a century later—achievements that integrally affect the work of EEs.

Boole’s methodology thrived in a world gripped by symbolic algebra’s popularity. His algorithms unlocked immense mathematical potential, encompassing both differential equations and unique operators. Ahead of his time, George Boole helped unite a divided academic landscape during his career.
