**Boolean Algebra (structure)**

In abstract algebra, a **Boolean algebra** or **Boolean lattice** is a complemented distributive lattice. This type of algebraic structure captures essential properties of both set operations and logic operations. A Boolean algebra can be seen as a generalization of a power set algebra or a field of sets. It is also a special case of De Morgan algebra and Kleene algebra.
