2018 Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics  
Short-circuit evaluation denotes the semantics of propositional connectives in which the second argument is evaluated only if the first argument does not suffice to determine the value of the expression. Free short-circuit logic is the equational logic in which compound statements are evaluated from left to right, while atomic evaluations are not memorised throughout the evaluation, i.e., evaluations of distinct occurrences of an atom in a compound statement may yield different truth values. We
more » ... provide a simple semantics for free SCL and an independent axiomatisation. Finally, we discuss evaluation strategies, some other SCLs, and side effects.
