# Bochvar's Three-Valued Logic

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration presents a simple test for Bochvar's (1939) three-valued logic. The values are: True, False, and Undefined (or Paradoxical or Meaningless), with associated numerical values 1, 0, 1/2, respectively. The value of compound propositions is evaluated according to Bochvar's matrices for internal connectives.

## Details

A simple two-dimensional area is occupied by triangles, squares, and pentagons of three different sizes and two colors. If in a statement an individual constant with no reference appears ( in case of a world with two figures and ), then the statement is meaningless.
