  Ternary logic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A ternary or three-valued logic is a multi-valued logic in which there are three truth values indicating true, false and some third value, often called possible, unknown, uncertain, neither true nor false (see fuzzy logic), or paraconsistent.
Balanced ternary uses -1 for false, 1 for true and 0 for the third value.
Ternary predicate logics exist as well; these may have readings of the quantifier different from classical (binary) predicate logic, and may include alternative quantifiers as well.

 Encyclopedia: Ternary logic
Although ternary most often refers to a system in which the three digits, 0, 1 and 2, are all nonnegative integers, the adjective also lends its name to the balanced ternary system, useful for comparison logic.
Ternary is inefficient for human usage, just as binary is. Therefore, nonary (base 9, each digit is two ternary digits) or base 27 (each digit is three ternary digits) is often used, similar to how octal and hexadecimal systems are used in place of binary.
Ternary also has a unit similar to a byte, the tryte, which is six ternary digits.

However binary logic in a way is as artificial and alien as multi-value logic, if not more so, because of its limited capabilities compared to our natural logical capabilities.
That means 16 functions for binary logic, close to 20,000 functions for ternary logic and a whopping 4 billion functions for 4-value logic.
The purpose of this article is to find ternary expressions that will provide equivalent designs and that may affect the speed (or propagation time) and size of digital solutions in ternary logic.

 Ternary logic circuits with CMOS integrated circuits - Patent 4107549
The ternary NOR operator 32 comprises two pairs of complementary p-type and n-type metal oxide semiconductor transistors; namely, a first p-type element 34 and a second p-type element 36 which are connected in series, and a first n-type element 38 and a second n-type element 40 which are connected in parallel.
Therefore, when the first ternary switch of each stage of the shift register is turned on, it couples the signal from the previous stage in the shift register (or the input in the case of the first stage), and causes that signal to be stored on the input capacitance of the simple ternary inverter.
The ternary signal no matter at which level it is inserted at the input terminal, is shifted to the right by one complete stage per one complete clock cycle, and appears at the input of each stage in the same manner as it was first inserted, having been inverted twice in the preceding stage.

 multi-valued logic: an introduction
The focus is on extending the notion of binary logic as the description of electronic switching between two states (in general given as '1' and '0', or 'on' and 'off' or 'true' and 'false') to multi-value logic.
the logic '1' is assumed to be identical to the arithmetical '1' and the logical '0' is assumed to be identical to the arithmetical '0'.
A ternary or 3-value logic function is one that has two inputs which can assume three states (say 0, 1 and 2) and generates one output signal that can have one of these three states.

By use of such memory logic cells or memory elements, the programming or re-programming of new logic functions into the programmable logic execution unit is performed by programming the memory elements, said programming preferably being done in one clock-cycle or one memory- write cycle.
Here, a memory logic cells may be structured so that an input bit signal is fed to a first logic element input and the complementary of the input bit signal is fed to a second logic element input, with a comparison output signal being given on the logic element output.

The only natural language with trivalent logic, as far as I know, is Aymará, a relative of Quechua native to the altiplano of Bolivia (see www.aymara.org) whose trivalent logic was elucidated by Iván Guzmán de Rojas.
It's called ternary because there are three digits and each successive place represents another power of three, but instead of using the digits 0, 1, and 2 (which I would call trinary or base 3), ternary uses the digits 0 and 1 and the minus sign −, which represents −1.
In bivalent logic, this is synonymous with A∨B - A∧B.
