In Boolean algebra, an EXPRESSION is a group of constants and/or variables connected

by one or more operations. The expression may contain parentheses, but must never

contain an equality sign (=). For example, A+1 (read A or 1) and BC (read B and C) are

expressions. (Note the absence of equality signs.) In Boolean algebra, as in ordinary

algebra, it is not always necessary to use the multiplication connective (x). Multiplication

is also indicated by the absence of a connective. For example, the expression AxB can also

be expressed as AB, which has the same meaning.
