The disjointed Boolean (D/Boolean) solutions of several complex network reliability problems are presented to demonstrate the power and versatility of D/Boolean algebra. D/Boolean algebra is treated as a probability (rather than Boolean) function. This approach gives a reliability analyst the choice of preserving only the essential logic functions, removing the cumbersome manipulation of unnecessary logics, and efficiently deriving a probability solution of a system. The basic theory of D… Expand
