He also worked on linear algebra , matrices , various geometries, topology and Listing numbers , Bell numbers , graphs , the four-color problem , and the nature of continuity. He worked on applied mathematics in economics, engineering, and map projections such as the Peirce quincuncial projection , and was especially active in probability and statistics.
In —  he showed how Boolean algebra could be done via a repeated sufficient single binary operation logical NOR , anticipating Henry M. See also De Morgan's Laws. In  he set out the axiomatization of natural number arithmetic , a few years before Richard Dedekind and Giuseppe Peano.
In the same paper Peirce gave, years before Dedekind, the first purely cardinal definition of a finite set in the sense now known as " Dedekind-finite ", and implied by the same stroke an important formal definition of an infinite set Dedekind-infinite , as a set that can be put into a one-to-one correspondence with one of its proper subsets.
In  he distinguished between first-order and second-order quantification. In , he saw that Boolean calculations could be carried out via electrical switches,  anticipating Claude Shannon by more than 50 years.
By the later s  he was devising existential graphs , a diagrammatic notation for the predicate calculus. Based on them are John F. Sowa 's conceptual graphs and Sun-Joo Shin's diagrammatic reasoning.
The New Elements of Mathematics Peirce wrote drafts for an introductory textbook, with the working title The New Elements of Mathematics, that presented mathematics from an original standpoint. Those drafts and many other of his previously unpublished mathematical manuscripts finally appeared  in The New Elements of Mathematics by Charles S.
Peirce , edited by mathematician Carolyn Eisele. Nature of mathematics Peirce agreed with Auguste Comte in regarding mathematics as more basic than philosophy and the special sciences of nature and mind.
Peirce classified mathematics into three subareas: 1 mathematics of logic, 2 discrete series, and 3 pseudo-continua as he called them, including the real numbers and continua. Influenced by his father Benjamin , Peirce argued that mathematics studies purely hypothetical objects and is not just the science of quantity but is more broadly the science which draws necessary conclusions; that mathematics aids logic, not vice versa; and that logic itself is part of philosophy and is the science about drawing conclusions necessary and otherwise.
Much of the mathematics of relations now taken for granted was "borrowed" from Peirce, not always with all due credit; on that and on how the young Bertrand Russell , especially his Principles of Mathematics and Principia Mathematica , did not do Peirce justice, see Anellis Lewis wrote, "The contributions of C. Peirce to symbolic logic are more numerous and varied than those of any other writer—at least in the nineteenth century. Relational logic gained applications.
In mathematics, it influenced the abstract analysis of E. Moore and the lattice theory of Garrett Birkhoff. In computer science, the relational model for databases was developed with Peircean ideas in work of Edgar F. Codd , who was a doctoral student  of Arthur W. Burks , a Peirce scholar.
In economics, relational logic was used by Frank P. They also adopted and modified Peirce's notations, typographical variants of those now used. Peirce apparently was ignorant of Frege's work, despite their overlapping achievements in logic, philosophy of language , and the foundations of mathematics. A philosophy of logic, grounded in his categories and semiotic, can be extracted from Peirce's writings and, along with Peirce's logical work more generally, is exposited and defended in Hilary Putnam ;  the Introduction in Nathan Houser et al.
He long held that the real numbers constitute a pseudo-continuum;  that a true continuum is the real subject matter of analysis situs topology ; and that a true continuum of instants exceeds—and within any lapse of time has room for—any Aleph number any infinite multitude as he called it of instants.
From now on, there are different kinds of continua, which have different properties. Friend Reviews. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. To ask other readers questions about Introduction to Probability and Mathematical Statistics , please sign up.
