 The book is a complete collection of Paul Halmos's articles written on the subject of algebraic logic (the theory of Boolean functions). Altogether, there are ten articles, which were published between 19541959 in eight different journals spanning four countries. The articles appear in an order that allows the reader unfamiliar with the subject to read them without many prerequisites. In particular, the first article in the book is an accessible introduction to algebraic logic. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic logic.
