Abstract

We discuss boolean expressions, which are named after George Boole (although the 1971 Compressed OED spells boolean as boolian!). Boolean expressions are used in one form or another in most programming languages today (e.g. Pascal, FORTRAN, C, Scheme, and Lisp), so the material in this chapter will be familiar to practicing programmers. The chapter also discusses how to model English statements as boolean expressions.
