George Boole was a well known mathematician. He was born in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England on November 2, 1815 and died on December 8, 1864 in Ballintemple, County Cork, Ireland. Boole has achieved many accomplishments and has won many awards for his accomplishments.

Boole did not study for an academic degree, but he started working at the age of 16 as an assistant school teacher with an interest in language. However, in 1835 he opened his own school and began to study mathematics on his own. He studied the works of Pierre-Simon Laplace and Joseph-Louis Lagrange, which later became the basis of his first mathematics paper. After receiving encouragement from Duncan Gregory, he began publishing in the Cambridge Mathematical Journal. Boole began to study algebra and published an application of algebraic methods to the solution of differential equations in the Transactions of the Royal Society, which he then received the Society's Royal Medal. This is when he started to get his fame. In 1849, Boole was appointed to the chair of mathematics at Queens College, Cork. This is where he taught for the rest of his life, which is where he gained the reputation of being an outstanding and dedicated teacher. In 1854, he published An Investigation into the Laws of Thought, on which are founded the Mathematical Theories of Logic and Probabilities. He approached logic in a new way reducing it to a simple algebra, incorporating logic into mathematics. He introduced the analogy between algebraic symbols and those that represent logic forms. That is when Boole began the algebra of logic called Boolean algebra, which now finds application in computer construction, switching circuits, and more.

He also worked on differential equations, the calculus of finite differences, and general methods in probability. He published the differential equations in the Treatise on Differential Equations in 1859 and the calculus of finite differences in the Treatise...

...GeorgeBoole: The Genius
GeorgeBoole was a British mathematician, and he is known as the inventor of Boolean Algebra. His theories combined the concepts of logic and mathematics, and hence he is known as the father of mathematical logic. This combination of mathematics and logic came to be known as Boolean algebra, and is the basis of digital electronic design, which is used in fields ranging from telephone switching to computer...

I.n spite, however, of the excellence and extent of his mathematical writings, it is probably as a logical reformer that De Morgan will be best remembered. In this respect he stands alongside of his great contemporaries Sir W. R. Hamilton and GeorgeBoole, as one of several independent discoverers of the all-important principle of the quantification of the predicate. Unlike most mathematicians, De Morgan always laid much stress upon the importance of logical...
