This e-book isn't poorly written. it truly is annoyingly written. The author's inflated ego oozes out of each web page and makes the publication untenable. it's not unreadable, it truly is easily no longer relaxing.

Its height is therefore less than or equal to 5. At the moment, nothing allows us to claim that its height is exactly 5. Might we not, in fact, imagine a second way of decomposing this formula which would lead to a shorter tree? 3) is that for every formula F E F, there is at least one decomposition of the type we have just exhibited. 10, will be proved by induction on the set of formulas. 4 The unique decomposition theorem For each word W E W(A), let us agree to denote by o[W] (respectively: e[W]) the number of opening (respectively: closing) parentheses that occur in W.

Or else G is a sub-formula of F I, and, by the induction hypothesis, the formula F{, which results from substituting H for G in F], is logically equivalent to F I. Then the formula F' is the formula (F{ ;\ F2); it is logically equivalent to F because, for any assignment 8, we have The argument is strictly similar in the third case, when G is a sub-formula of F2. 18. In practice, to show that a formula is a tautology, or that two formulas are logically equivalent, we have several methods available.

2 . 20 • A tautology is a formula that assumes the value 1 under every assignment of truth values. 28 PROPOSITIONAL CALCULUS • the notationfor 'F is a tautology' is: 1-* F; whereas J,L* F signifies: 'F is not a tautology'. • Given two formulas F and G, F is logically equivalent to G ifand only formula (F {} G) is a tautology. The notation for' F is logically equivalent to G' is: F ~ if the G. 21 The next two properties follow immediatelyfrom these definitions: • For allformulas F and G, we have F ~ G if and only iffor every assignment of truth values 0 E {O, I}P, 8(F) = 8(G).
