In mathematics an mathematical logic, Boolean algebra is the branch o algebra in which the values o the variables are the truith values true an false, uisually denotit 1 an 0 respectively. Instead o elementary algebra whaur the values o the variables are nummers, an the main operations are addeetion an multiplication, the main operations o Boolean algebra are the conjunction an denotit as ∧, the disjunction or denotit as ∨, an the negation nae denotit as ¬. It is thus a formalism for descrivin logical relations in the same wey that ordinar algebra descrives numeric relations.
