In the News If you thought the growing criticism directed at the United States Patent and Trademark Office would force them to rethink their strategies in granting patents, you're most likely wrong. After a re-examination that took more than four years, the USPTO has reconfirmed Amazon's ominous one-click patent.

Mathematics is an abstraction of logic. Therefore, mathematics is logic, but logic is not always mathematics. Logic can be cognition, the recognition of a sun rise, differentiated from a sun set.
QED, a logic circuit or a processor doesn't intrinsically do maths, though it is easy to abstract some algorithmic results to symbolise mathematics, while other results might symbolise other forms of logic.
