Nor () is a dyadic scalar boolean function which tests if neither argument is true: it returns 1 if both are 0 and 0 if at least one is 1. It represents Peirce's arrow or joint denial in Boolean logic. Nor is the boolean negation ~ of the Or function , and so its glyph is composed from those. However, fonts vary in how they compose them; some overlaying the glyphs (∨̴), and some stacking them (∨̃).
