Basically a relation in relational algebra is a set of dictionaries (called tuples) where each dictionary has identical keys

Go to: www. cramster.com Vectors are "tuples" (pairs, triples, or more) of numbers, depending on how many dimensions you're working with.

You can easily replicate ternary functionality using tuples then the conditional to select the appropriate one. e.g. ( "b", "a") [True] 'a'

Commas for tuples, semicolons for list and array items

The Sinn of an expression was said to be a “way of presenting” the corresponding Bedeutung, which might be an entity, a truthvalue, or a function from (ordered ntuples of) entities to truthvalues.

These clauses can be applied recursively to define the ptransform of a set of ordered tuples in D, a set of sets of objects in D, and so on.

So far we have defined permutation invariance for objects, tuples, and sets, but not for predicates, quantifiers, or other linguistic expressions.

We can think of the “extension” of an nary quantifier or sentential connective C on a domain D as a function from ntuples of sets of assignments (of values from D to the language's variables) to sets of assignments.

In particular, it is evident that the detection loophole is more difficult to block in an experiment performed with ntuples of particles,

An entirely new domain of variants is opened by studying ensembles of ntuples of particles with n ¥ 3.

errguitar commented on the word tuples
From Wikipedia: The term originated as an abstraction of the sequence: single, double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, ntuple. A tuple of length n is usually described as an ntuple. In mathematics, a tuple is a sequence (also known as an "ordered list") of values, called the components of the tuple. These components can be any kind of mathematical objects, where each component of a tuple is a value of a specified type
