Truth-Value

 

(in logic), the value that a proposition assumes, relative to the content reflected in it. In ordinary (classical) logic two truth-values are used—“true” and “false.” In many-valued logic propositions are examined that can assume a greater number of truth values; for example, in three-valued logic there are three truth-values, which may be interpreted as “true,” “false,” or “indeterminate.”

If a mathematical sentence shows which concrete sentences follow from which other concrete sentences, shouldn't it already have a truth-value in order to do that?
If I understand him correctly, Cespedes' argument is simply to point out that there is a difference between claiming that the truth-value and the adequacy of contrastive causal claims depends on what happens instead of the cause.
Determination of initial iteration points: first of all, the initial iteration points can be searched from the first data point y(t) in the sample sequence or a data point y(i+t) after a certain sample truth-valuey(t) (the sequence number of a sample truth-value point in the initial sample sequence) until three consecutive points y(t), y(i-1) and y(i-2) are found that can meet Formulas (2) and (3), and the three points are set as the initial iteration points.
This is not to claim that truth-value intuitions are a reliable guide to semantic content.

The fuzzy Minimum operator is commonly used for conjunctive (AND) connections and drives the truth-value of the conclusion to the minimum of the truth-values among its antecedents.
Nozick writes that knowing that some proposition, p, is true is a matter of being "sensitive" to p's truth-value. Common-sense knowledge claims are true, even though we do not know that skeptical hypotheses are false.
