truth table

n
1. (Logic) a table, used in logic, indicating the truth-value of a compound statement for every truth-value of its component propositions
2. (Electronics) a similar table, used in transistor technology, to indicate the value of the output signal of a logic circuit for every value of input signal

This produced a generalized quantum "truth table" showing the process worked.
The results are then summarized in truth table rows to determine which causal conditions, or combinations of conditions, are necessary or sufficient for the outcome being investigated.
The proposed approach is based on optimization qualitative and quantitative for dependability analysis, qualitative optimization is based on causality relations between the events deduced from Truth Table Method combined with Karnaugh Table for deriving minimal feared states, quantitative optimization is based on Reduced Markov Graph this graph is directly composed by a minimal feared state deduced from the qualitative optimization, to avoid the problem of combinatorial explosion in the number of states in the Markov graph modelling.
The result of the probability connector between the two classical propositions (.4) and (B) in the following truth table:
The truth table for subtractor is presented in Table 2, where A, B, and C are corresponding inputs, and Diff and Borr are outputs.
The schematic diagram and truth table for AND operation is shown in Figure 1, where an optical band-pass filter (OBPF) is used to reject out the spectral components other than the switched signal.

QCA requires five steps: (1) identify the outcome of interest and possibly related conditions; (2) create calibration structures for each measure; (3) calibrate and weight the data; (4) create and minimize a truth table using Boolean logic; and (5) assess solutions based on parameters of fit--consistency and coverage.
The full adder truth table is shown in table II for all combinations of inputs.
However, equivalent gate and circuit functionality can be described as a permutation matrix, a decision diagram as well as a truth table. If the gate diagram is used, an n-line logic vector can be propagated from the input to the output by applying the function of each corresponding gate.
