2013 Reprint of 1963 variation. complete facsimile of the unique variation, no longer reproduced with Optical acceptance software program. the speculation of Boolean algebras is without doubt one of the most fascinating components of arithmetic. at the one hand, Boolean algebras come up obviously in such assorted fields as good judgment, degree thought, topology, and ring thought, in order that the examine of those gadgets is prompted through vital functions. while, the idea which has been constructed constitutes the most stylish components of recent algebra. eventually, the topic nonetheless poses many difficult questions, a few of that have significant value. A graduate scholar who needs to review Boolean algebras will locate a number of first-class books to tender his method: for an advent, the booklet via Halmos is among the better of those monographs. It bargains a short path to the main beautiful elements of the idea.
