Boolean algebras are used to provide formal semantics for various logics and are used in the set theoretic method of forcing. 1004 02 pages 001-322:Layout 1 16/2/09 15:11 Page 35 b o u n d va r i a b l e 35 See also: Algebraic Logic, Boolean Operator, Logic Gate, Partial Order BOOLEAN NEGATION Boolean negation is the negation operator characterized by the following rules: ~A is true if and only if A is not true. ~A is false if and only if A is not false. Boolean negation is equivalent to other versions of negation (such as DeMorgan negation) in the context of classical semantics, but these negations are non-equivalent in many-valued logics such as first-degree entailment.
