# Ernst Schröder (nonfiction)

From Fiction Wiki

**Friedrich Wilhelm Karl Ernst Schröder**(25 November 1841 in Mannheim, Baden, Germany – 16 June 1902 in Karlsruhe, Germany) was a German mathematician mainly known for his work on algebraic logic.

He is a major figure in the history of mathematical logic (a term he may have invented), by virtue of summarizing and extending the work of George Boole, Augustus De Morgan, Hugh MacColl, and especially Charles Sanders Peirce.

He is best known for his monumental *Vorlesungen über die Algebra der Logik* (Lectures on the algebra of logic), in 3 volumes, which prepared the way for the emergence of mathematical logic as a separate discipline in the twentieth century by systematizing the various systems of formal logic of the day.
