Logic gates

Can logic gates be expressed using mathematical operations

Re: Logic gates

Hi;

Of course. A logic gate is a real world example of a boolean function.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: Logic gates

Which mathematical operations?

Re: Logic gates

I was trying to memorize and explain the logic gates earlier and i thought of sets.if  U={1,0} and 1={{ }},0={ } and A AND B=A intersection B,A OR B=A union B,NOT A=A' then the idea seems to work.are these expressions valid?

Re: Logic gates

If you wire the output of a logic gate to an input upstream from a bunch of logic gates, you create a sequential sort of circuit, depending what exactly you do.
I suggest reading about J-K flip-flops and D flip-flops and also thinking about
how these flip-flops are made out of logic gates and pursuing some thought
about making a sequential machine without using J-K or D flip-flops, but
simply by figuring out your own way of creating a sequential circuit.
I do not know how to make a mathematical expression for a sequential circuit.
