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

By Paul J. Nahin

Boolean algebra, also referred to as Boolean common sense, is on the middle of the digital circuitry in every thing we use--from our pcs and vehicles, to our kitchen devices and residential home equipment. How did a procedure of arithmetic tested within the Victorian period turn into the foundation for such marvelous technological achievements a century later? In The philosopher and the Engineer, best-selling well known math author Paul Nahin combines enticing difficulties and a colourful historic narrative to inform the extraordinary tale of ways males in numerous eras--mathematician and thinker George Boole (1815-1864) and electric engineer and pioneering details theorist Claude Shannon (1916-2001)--advanced Boolean common sense and have become founding fathers of the digital communications age.

Presenting the twin biographies of Boole and Shannon, Nahin examines the historical past of Boole's cutting edge principles, and considers how they resulted in Shannon's groundbreaking paintings on electric relay circuits and data concept. alongside the best way, Nahin provides good judgment difficulties for readers to resolve and talks in regards to the contributions of such key avid gamers as Georg Cantor, Tibor Rado, and Marvin Minsky--as good because the the most important position of Alan Turing's "Turing machine"--in the advance of mathematical common sense and knowledge transmission. Nahin takes readers from basic innovations to a deeper and extra subtle realizing of the way a latest electronic computing device similar to the pc is developed. Nahin additionally delves into the latest rules in quantum mechanics and thermodynamics with a view to discover computing's attainable obstacles within the twenty-first century and past.

The truth seeker and the Engineer indicates how a sort of mathematical good judgment and the suggestions of 2 males prepared the ground for the electronic know-how of the trendy world.
