No man acquires property without acquiring with it a little arithmetic also.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

This chapter builds upon basic properties discussed in Chapter and explores more complex forms of property operators. First we briefly examine the property equivalents of Boolean operators ! (not), —— (or), && (and), -> (implies), <-> (iff), and then provide detailed description of temporal operators inspired by Linear Temporal Logic.
