# Negation vs. Void — What's the Difference?

## Compare with Definitions

#### Negation

In logic, negation, also called the logical complement, is an operation that takes a proposition P {\displaystyle P} to another proposition "not P {\displaystyle P} ", written ¬ P {\displaystyle \neg P} , ∼ P {\displaystyle {\mathord {\sim }}P} or P ¯ {\displaystyle {\overline {P}}} . It is interpreted intuitively as being true when P {\displaystyle P} is false, and false when P {\displaystyle P} is true.
