Logical Operators

The usual logical operators include AND, OR, and NOT. SQL uses a three-valued logical system with true, false, and null, which represents "unknown". Their priorities are NOT > AND > OR.

Table 1 lists operation rules, where a and b represent logical expressions.

The operators AND and OR are commutative, that is, you can switch the left and right operand without affecting the result.
