George Boole Mathematician

Boolean logic, developed by George Boole (1815-1864), is often used to refine the determination of system status or to set or clear specific bits. Boolean logic is simply a way of comparing individual bits. It uses what are called operators to determine how the bits are compared. They simulate the gates of hardware.
