The Logician and the Engineer: How George Boole and Claude Shannon Created the Information Age

The Logician and the Engineer: How George Boole and Claude Shannon Created the Information Age (EPUB ebook – Course Book)

By Nahin, Paul J.

Boolean algebra, also called Boolean logic, is at the heart of the electronic circuitry in everything we use-from our computers and cars, to home appliances. How did a system of mathematics established in the Victorian era become the basis for such incredible technological achiev...ements a century later? In The Logician and the Engineer, Paul Nahin combines engaging problems and a colorful historical narrative to tell the remarkable story of how two men in different eras-mathematician and philosopher George Boole and electrical engineer and pioneering information theorist Claude Shannon-advanced Boolean logic and became founding fathers of the electronic communications age. Nahin takes readers from fundamental concepts to a deeper and more sophisticated understanding of modern digital machines, in order to explore computing and its possible limitations in the twenty-first century and beyond.
