Can logic gates be expressed using mathematical operations

Hi;

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

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Which mathematical operations?

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?

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.**
