Understood. But what I am after is whether there is a term or phrase with the same meaning as "Boolean Term" (as used in the DB2 world) that would be recognized by users of other products. "Conjunctive predicate" seems a better candidate, but I can't recall it being used in a workplace setting.
This probably isn't a question for a theory group at all, but I figured this might be one watering-hole shared by users of many different products.
