**Logical negation** is an operation on one logical value, typically the value of a proposition, that produces a value of *true* when its operand is false and a value of *false* when its operand is true.

The truth table of \(\operatorname{NOT}~ p,\) also written \(\lnot p,\!\) appears below:

\(p\!\) | \(\lnot p\!\) |

\(\operatorname{F}\) | \(\operatorname{T}\) |

\(\operatorname{T}\) | \(\operatorname{F}\) |

The negation of a proposition \(p\!\) may be found notated in various ways in various contexts of application, often merely for typographical convenience. Among these variants are the following:

\(\text{Notation}\!\) | \(\text{Vocalization}\!\) |

\(\bar{p}\!\) | \(p\!\) bar |

\(\tilde{p}\!\) | \(p\!\) tilde |

\(p'\!\) | \(p\!\) prime \(p\!\) complement |

\(!p\!\) | bang \(p\!\) |
