If p is a statement, then negation of p written as ~p (or ~p } or 7p and read as “not p”. the truth
 p ~p T F F T
table is as follows

Example: P: madras is a city

~p:madras is not a city or it is not the case that madras is a city.

2.define conjunction?

 P Q P^Q T T F F T F T F T F F F
The conjunction if 2 statements P and Q is the statement P^Q which is read as “P and Q”. the statement P^Q has a truth value T whenever both P and Q have the truth table T; otherwise it has truth value F. the conjunction is defined by the truth table as follows.

Example : P : jack went up the hill

Q: jill went up the hill

P^Q: jack and jill went up the hill

3.define disjunction?

The disjunction of 2 statements P and Q is the statement P v Q which is read as “P or Q”. the statement P v Q has a truth value F only when both P and Q have truth value F otherwise it is true. The disjunction is defined by following table.

P Q P v Q

1.I shall go to market or a cinema.

2. there is something wrong with the bulb or wiring.

4.state molecular statements?

Those statements which contain one or more atomic statements and some connectives are called molecular statements.

Examples;

~P,P^~Q,P v Q.

5. Define conditional and biconditional?

If P and Q are any two statements then the statement P-> Q which is read as “if P then Q “ is

called a conditional statement. Here P is called antecedent and Q is called consequent.

Truth table:

 P Q P-.> T T F F T F T F T F T T

Example:

P: it is hot. Q: 5+3=8.

p-> is false only when P is true and Q is false. Otherwise p->Q is true. Biconditional

 P Q P T T F f T F T F T F F T
If P and Q are any two statements , then the statement P<-> which is read as “ P if only if Q” is called Biconditional statement , the statement p<->Q has the truth value T whenever both P and Q have identical truth values . the truth table for biconditional is as follows;

A statement formula which is true regardless of the truth values of the statements which replace the variables in it is called a universally valid formula or a tautology or a logical truth.

 P ~P PV~P T F F T T T
Example: P v~P A statement formula which is false regardless of the truth table values of the statements which replace variables in it is called a contradiction.

Example: P^~P

 P ~P P^~P T F F T F F

7.define Duality law?

Two formula A and A* are duals of each other if other if either one can be obtained from the other by replacing^ and v are also called duals of each other.

8.prove the following implications :

(i) (P^Q)=>(P->Q); (ii)P=>(Q->p)

Assume the consequent to be false (i.e)P->Q is false . by definition of conditional P is True and

Q is false

(ii) Assume Q->P is false Q is True but P is false. Therefore P is false.

9.define DNF and CNF

DNF:

A formula which is equivalent to a given formula and which consists of sum of elementary products is called a disjunctive normal form of the given formula.

CNF:

A formula which is equivalent to a given formula and which consists of product of elementary sums is called conjuctive normal form of the given formula.

10.state inference theory?

Rule P: a given premises may be introduced at any stage in the derivative.

Rule T: a formula S may be introduced in a derivation if S is tautologically implied by one or more of the preceding formula in to derivation.

Rule CP: if the conclusion is the form R->S then we include R is an additional premises and derive S from the given act of premises and R.this rule is called rule CP.

11.define PDNF and PCNF

1.Define a simple statement function.

UNIT-III&IV

 Adhiparasakthi College of Engg., G.B. Nagar, Kalavai CD / Page 5 of 10
 III Year – V Semester CSE MA2265 – Discrete Mathematics
A simple statement function of one variable is defined to be anexpression consisting of a predicate symbol and an individual variable. Such a statement function becomes a statement when the variable is replased by the name of any object.

Ex:

If “X is a teacher” is denoted by T(x),it is a statement function.if X is replased by John,then

“Johan is a teacher” is statement .

2.Define a compound statement function.

A compound stament function is obtained by combining one or more simple statement functions by logical connectives.

Ex: M(x)^H(x) M(x)->H(x)

M(x)ѵ 7H(x)

An extension of this idea to the statement functions of two or more variables is straight

forward.

3.Define universal Quantifiers and existential Quantifiers. Universal Quantifiers:

The universal Quantification of P(x) is the proposition.”P(x) is true for all values of x in the

universe of discourse”.

The notation ¥x P(x) denotes the universal quantification of P(x).here ¥ is called the universal quantifier.

Existential Quantifier:

The existential Quantification of P(x) is the proposition.” There exists an element x in the universe of discourse such that P(x) is true”.

We use the notation Ǝx P(x) for the existential quantification of p(x).here Ǝ is called the existential quantifier.

4. what are the rules of Quantifier?

5.what are the rules of inference?

1. Rule P

A given premises may be introduced at any stage in the derivation.

2. Rule T

A formula S may be introduced in a derivation if S is tautologically implied by one or more of the proceeding formulae in the derivation .

3. Rule CP

If we can derive S from R and a set of given premises,then we can derive R->S from the set of premises alone.

6. symbolize the expression “x is the father of the mother of y”

P(x) : x is a person F(x,y) : x is a father of y M(x,y) : x is a mother of y

We symbolize this as(Ǝz)(p(z)ʌF(x,z)ʌM(z,y))

7. Express the statement, ”Some people who trust others are rewarded” in symbolic form.

(Ǝx)[P(x)ʌT(x)ʌR(x)] P(x) : x is aperson T(x) : x trusts others R(x) : x is rewarded

8. Give an example of free and bound variable in predicate logic.

(¥x) P(x,y) : x is a bound variable

Y is a free variable

9. Define statement function of one variable. When it will become a statement?

Statement function of one variable is defined to be an expression consisting of a predicate symbol and an individual variable. The statement function becomes a statement, when the variable is replaced by the name of an object.

10. Use quantifiers to express the associate law for multiplication of real numbers.

Universe of discourse: Set of real numbers. P(x,y,z): (x*y)*z

Q(x,y,z): x*(y*z) (x)(y)(z)(P(x,y,z)ó Q(x,y,z))

11. Define simple statement function.

A simple statement function contains a predicate symbol followed by one (or) more variables. It gives the statement when the variables are replaced by objects from a designated set.

Let the universe of discourse be the set of all integers.

Let A(x) : 2x + 1 = 5 and B(x) :

The statements (Ǝx) A(x) and(Ǝx)B(x) are true. The statement (Ǝx)(A(x)ʌB(x)) is false,

because there is no integer ‘a’ such that 2a+1=5and 14.show that ~P(a,b)follows logically from (x),(y)(P(x.y)->W(x,y)and ~W(a,b)
