Boolean chaos glossary
- A binary digit, used to represent numbers in base 2, generally represented as a 1 or 0. Bit is also a unit of information (entropy)
- Refers to data items that can have "true" and "false" (or, equivalently, 1 and 0 respectively) as their only possible values and to operations on such values.
- Having exactly predictable time evolution. That may be determined from rules, not due to chance or randomness.
- Separate, distinct, non-continuous.
- Refers to whether an integer is even (divisible by two) or odd (not divisible by two).
- Parity is also the name of a logic function of N bits which is true (1) only if the total number of inputs with value 1 is odd.
- XOR - Exclusive-OR
- Logic function of two inputs which is true (1) only if the two inputs have different values.
- XNOR - Exclusive-NOR
- Logic function of two inputs which is true (1) only if the two inputs have the same value.
