Mathematics

In mathematics, a finitary boolean function is a function of the form f : Bk ? B, where B {0, 1} is a boolean domain and where k is a nonnegative integer. In the case where k - 0, the “function” is simply a constant element of B. More generally, a function of the form f : X ? B, where X is an arbitrary set, is a boolean-valued function] (see below). If...

Mathematics

In mathematics, a binary relation (or a dyadic relation) is an arbitrary association of elements of one set with elements of another (perhaps the same) set. An example is the “divides” relation between the set of prime numbers P and the set of integers Z, in which every prime p is associated to every integer z that is a multiple of p. In this...
