# U+22BDNor

U+22BD was added in Unicode version 1.1 in 1993. It belongs to the block U+2200 to U+22FF Mathematical Operators in the U+0000 to U+FFFF Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Math Symbol and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script.

The glyph is not a composition. It has no designated width in East Asian texts. In bidirectional text it acts as Other Neutral. When changing direction it is not mirrored. The word that U+22BD forms with similar adjacent characters prevents a line break inside it.

In Boolean logic, logical NOR, non-disjunction, or joint denial is a truth-functional operator which produces a result that is the negation of logical or. That is, a sentence of the form (p NOR q) is true precisely when neither p nor q is true—i.e. when both p and q are false. It is logically equivalent to $¬\left(p\vee q\right)$ and $¬p\wedge ¬q$, where the symbol $¬$ signifies logical negation, $\vee$ signifies OR, and $\wedge$ signifies AND.

Non-disjunction is usually denoted as $↓$ or $\overline{\vee }$ or $X$ (prefix) or $\mathrm{NOR}$.

As with its dual, the NAND operator (also known as the Sheffer stroke—symbolized as either $↑$, $\mid$ or $/$), NOR can be used by itself, without any other logical operator, to constitute a logical formal system (making NOR functionally complete).

The computer used in the spacecraft that first carried humans to the moon, the Apollo Guidance Computer, was constructed entirely using NOR gates with three inputs.
