Two systematic treatises on mathematical subjects were completed by Boole during his lifetime. The ''Treatise on Differential Equations'' appeared in 1859, and was followed, the next year, by a ''Treatise on the [[Calculus]] of Finite Differences'', a sequel to the former work. In the sixteenth and seventeenth chapters of the ''Differential Equations'' is an account of the general symbolic method, and of a general method in analysis, originally described in his memoir printed in the ''Philosophical Transactions'' for 1844. |
