    Simplifying logical expressions

    What methodologies are there for simplifying logical expressions?

    My old friend, a software engineer seemed to use 2 methods.

    One seemed mathematical in nature, like solving an equation.

    The other method was graphical he draw a chart and then x'd out the bits
    that did not matter.

    Any ideas on good resources for simplifying logical expressions.

    He is gone now. Wish I'd paid more attention.
