Google 'doodles' mathematician George Boole

New Delhi: Internet search giant Google on Monday dedicated a doodle to noted mathematician George Boole on his 200th birth anniversary.
 
George Boole was an English mathematician, logician and philosopher whose legacy of Boolean logic is credited with laying the foundations for the information age.
 
He worked in the fields of differential equations and algebraic logic, and is best known as the author of The Laws of Thought which contains Boolean algebra.
 
Boole died of pneumonia in 1864, when he was 49 years old, after he walked two miles through cold rain and then lectured wearing his wet clothes, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
