It is negation of [tex]\Vdash[/tex] and the latter means "entails".

Yes, I saw the [itex]\Vdash[/itex] symbol listed as "entails" in Wikipedia's list of mathematical symbols. However, in that article, the explanation is "A [itex]\Vdash[/itex] B means the sentence A entails the sentence B, that is in every model in which A is true, B is also true."It is negation of [tex]\Vdash[/tex] and the latter means "entails".

I can't see how that applies to my example (which is not in the form[itex]A \nVdash B[/itex]).

How about : the cases described are excluded, i.e., the definition excludes the

cases n=k=0 ?

cases n=k=0 ?

This still does not seem to make sense in the given context. The relevant phrase in full is:[tex]\mathrm{where \ } R_{n,0,k}(x) \ := \ \nVdash(n=k=0), \ \ R_{n,j,0} \ := \ \nVdash(n=j) \mathrm{ \ \ and \ \ } R_{n,j,k} \ := \ 0 \ \mathrm{else}[/tex]How about : the cases described are excluded, i.e., the definition excludes the

cases n=k=0 ?

[tex]R_{n,0,k}=\left\{

\begin{array}{c}

1, \\

0,

\end{array}

\begin{array}{l}

\text{if }n=k=0 \\

\text{otherwise}

\end{array}

\right. [/tex]

[tex]R_{n,j,0}=\left\{

\begin{array}{c}

1, \\

0,

\end{array}

\begin{array}{l}

\text{if }n=j \\

\text{otherwise}

\end{array}

\right.[/tex]

Even if this is correct, there are other bits of notation that I don't understand... but I suppose I should start a new thread, as this one seems pretty dead.

Good idea. It looks like a typo. So you should ask the author.
