In mathematics, a formal system[?] is said to be consistent if none of its proven theorems can also be disproven within that system. Or, alternatively, if the formal system does not assign both true and false as the semantics of one given statement.

To add:

  • systems proved to be consistent
  • systems not proved consistent
  • systems that cannot be proved consistent
