Where are the complements. E.g. is not A the square to the left of A or the square above A?

A is horizontal i.e. The lower half of the largest square
B is vertical i.e. The right hand side of the largest square

Is it a puzzle you are expecting an answer to or just an interesting example?

I can try what is the bar symbol over some letters are they NOT? Is the plus sign OR ? If two letters are next to each other is it AND? What does +0 mean?

Thanks

Yep:
βmultiplicationβ = AND
"overbar" = NOT ( Note an apostrophe is also sometimes used for NOT )
β1β = TRUE
"0" = FALSE

Then, the basic rules:
X AND X = X ( XX = X )
X AND NOT X = 0 ( XXβ = 0 )
X AND TRUE = X ( X 1 = X )
X AND FALSE = FALSE ( X 0 = 0 )
X OR X = X ( X + X = X )
X OR NOT X = TRUE ( X + Xβ = 1 )
X OR TRUE = TRUE ( X + 1 = 1 )
X OR FALSE = X ( X + 0 = X )

After that, it works just like "ordinary algebraβ!
