91 editions published between 1860 and 2014 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Written by a great English mathematician, this classic text begins with the differences of elementary functions and explores interpolation, mechanical quadrature, finite integration, and the summation of series. Several useful tests for the convergence and divergence of series are developed, as is a method for finding the limits of error in series expansions. The latter half of the book discusses differenceequations, including linear, mixed, and partial differenceequations, and concludes with applications to problems in geometry and optics. The text pays particular attention to the connection of the calculus of finite differences with the differential calculus, and more than 200 problems appear in the text (some with solutions).

8 editions published between 1940 and 2003 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "This groundbreaking work on logic by the brilliant nineteenthcentury English mathematician George Boole (18151864) remains influential to this day. Boole's major contribution was to demonstrate conclusively that the symbolic expressions of algebra could be adapted to convey the fundamental principles and operations of logic, which hitherto had been expressed only in words. Boole was thus the founder of today's science of symbolic logic."BOOK JACKET

George Boole : selected manuscripts on logic and its philosophy
by George Boole
(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide George Boole (18151864) is well known to mathematicians for his research and textbooks on the calculus, but his name has spread worldwide for his innovations in symbolic logic and the development and applications made since his day. The utility of "Boolean algebra" in computing has greatly increased curiosity in the nature and extent of his achievements. His work is most accessible in his two books on logic, "A mathematical analysis of logic" (1947) and "An investigation of the laws of thought" (1954). But at various times he wrote manuscript essays, especially after the publication of the second book; several were intended for a nontechnical work, "The Philosophy of logic", which he was not able to complete. This volume contains an edited selection which not only relates them to Boole's publications and the historical context of his time, but also describes their strange history of family, followers and scholars have treid to confect an edition. The book will appeal to logicians, mathematicians and philosophers, and those interested in the histories of the corresponding subjects; and also students of the early Victorian Britain in which they were written
