Booleans

Booleans

represents the domain of Booleans, as in xBooleans.

Details

  • The domain of Booleans is taken to consist of the symbols True and False.
  • xBooleans evaluates immediately if x is explicitly True or False.
  • Simplify[exprBooleans] can be used to try to determine whether an expression is Boolean, with no undetermined variables.
  • Booleans is output in TraditionalForm as TemplateBox[{}, Booleans]. This typeset form can be input using bools.
