In science:
The random hypergraph model herein may be viewed as a simpliﬁcation of the random satisﬁability model: a vertex corresponds to a Boolean variable, and a hyperedge to the set of variables appearing in a speciﬁc logical conjunction, neglecting the truth or falsehood assigned to those variables.

But the truth (or falsehood) of the proposition X ≡ P RN C (P , Q) entails the truth (or falsehood) of the proposition Y ≡ QM T C (P , Q).
On the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Proof of the `Incompleteness' of Quantum Mechanics
But the truth (or falsehood) of the proposition X ≡ P RN C (P , Q) entails the truth (or falsehood) of the proposition Y ≡ QM T C (P , Q).
Why Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen did not prove that quantum mechanics is `incomplete'
The semantics of S T T is well understood and thoroughly documented in the literature [1, 2, 9, 25]; our summary below is adapted from Andrews . A frame is a collection {Dα}α∈T of nonempty sets Dα , such that Do = {T , F } (for truth and falsehood).
Quantified Multimodal Logics in Simple Type Theory
The crucial difference between Popperian science and CRM science is that the former appears to justify stark binary assessments regarding the truth or falsehood of a theory, while the latter provides only a number which can be compared to other numbers.
Compression Rate Method for Empirical Science and Application to Computer Vision
For simplicity, we assume that ﬁrst-order logic contains a propositional constant ⊥ for falsehood; formally, ⊥ is a 0-ary relation symbol always interpreted by
An Algebraic Preservation Theorem for Aleph-Zero Categorical Quantified Constraint Satisfaction
This assumption is by analogy to logie of propositions in where the value 1 corresponds to ‘truth’ and value 0 to ‘falsehood’.

Subset pivotality means that the distribution of any subvector of p-values under the respective null hypotheses is unaffected by the truth or falsehood of the remaining hypotheses, i.e.
Validation of credit default probabilities via multiple testing procedures
In a nutshell, we will see that formally this asymmetry is due to the wellknown preference of falsehood in logic programming semantics.
Towards a Systematic Account of Different Semantics for Logic Programs
It allows to substitute the preference for falsehood by preference for truth in the stable and well-founded semantics, but uses entirely different means than presented here.
