A Treatise on Differential Equations, Τόμος 2
Macmillan, 1865 - 85 σελίδες
There is an aspect of Boole's work that is not closely related to his treatises in logic or the theory of sets but which is familiar to every student of differential equations. This is the algorithm of differential operators, which he introduced to facilitate the treatment of linear differential equations. If, for example, we wish to solve the differential equation ay + by + cy = 0, the equation is written in the notation (aD2 + bD + c)y = 0. Then, regarding D as an unknown quantity rather than an operator, we solve the algebraic quadratic equation aD2 + bD + c = 0. There are many other situations in which Boole, in his Treatise on Differential Equations of 1859, pointed out parallels between the properties of the differential operator (and its inverse) and the rules of algebra. British mathematicians in the second half of the nineteenth century were thus again becoming leaders in algorithmic analysis, a field in which, fifty years earlier, they had been badly deficient.
