equivalence
equivalence
1. The logical connective combining two statements or formulas P and Q in such a way that the outcome is true if both P and Q are true or if both are false, as shown in the table. P and Q are said to be equivalent. The connective can be read as “if and only if” or “iff”, and is usually denoted by one of the following symbols: ≡ — <—> <=>
See also exclusiveNOR gate, propositional calculus.
2. A relationship between objects that are operationally or structurally indistinguishable, e.g. in combinational circuits, graphs, or grammars. Equivalence is less strong than identity or equality but much more useful in practice. See also machine equivalence.

equivalence
equivalence A problem of nonuniqueness in the interpretation of electrical soundings, when identical trough or peakshaped apparent resistivity graphs for a threelayer case can be synthesized using different models for the middle layer. Identical peakshaped graphs can be generated if the transverse resistance, R_{t}, remains a constant equal to hρ, where h is the thickness of the layer and ρ its true resistivity. Identical troughshaped graphs can be generated if the longitudinal conductance, G_{x}, remains a constant equal to h/ρ. Such problems can be resolved if access is available to borehole geologic control and the range of h or ρ can be deduced.
