Propositions A proposition is a declarative sentence that is either true or false. Examples of propositions: a) b) c) d) e) The Moon is made of green cheese. Trenton is the capital of New Jersey. Toronto is the capital of Canada. 1+0=1 0+0=2 Examples that are not propositions. f) g) h) i) 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

What time is it? x+1=2 x+y=z Propositional Logic Constructing Propositions Propositional Variables: p, q, r, s, The proposition that is always true is denoted by T and the proposition that is always false is denoted by F. Compound Propositions; constructed from logical connectives and other propositions Negation Conjunction Disjunction Implication Biconditional 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Compound Propositions: Negation The negation of a proposition p is denoted by p and has this truth table:

p T F p F T Example: If p denotes The earth is round., then p denotes It is not the case that the earth is round, or more simply The earth is not round. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Conjunction The conjunction of propositions p and q is denoted by p q and has this truth table: p T T F F

q T F T F Pq T F F F Example: If p denotes I am at home. and q denotes It is raining. then p q denotes I am at home and it is raining. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Disjunction The disjunction of propositions p and q is denoted by p q and has this truth table: p T

T F F q T F T F Pq T T T F Example: If p denotes I am at home. and q denotes It is raining. then p q denotes I am at home or it is raining. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education The Connective Or in English

In English or has two distinct meanings. Inclusive Or - In the sentence Students who have taken CS202 or Math120 may take this class, we assume that students need to have taken one of the prerequisites, but may have taken both. This is the meaning of disjunction. For p q to be true, either one or both of p and q must be true. Exclusive Or - When reading the sentence Soup or salad comes with this entre, we do not expect to be able to get both soup and salad. This is the meaning of Exclusive Or (Xor). In p q , one of p and q must be true, but not both. The truth table for is: p T T F F 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

q T F T F Pq F T T F Implication If p and q are propositions, then p q is a conditional statement or implication which is read as if p, then q and has this truth table: p q Pq T T T

T F F F T T F F T Example: If p denotes I am at home. and q denotes It is raining. then p q denotes If I am at home then it is raining. In p q, p is the hypothesis (antecedent or premise) and q is the conclusion (or consequence). 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Understanding Implication 1 In p q there does not need to be any connection between the antecedent or the consequent. The meaning of p q depends only on the truth values of

p and q. These implications are perfectly fine, but would not be used in ordinary English. If the moon is made of green cheese, then I have more money than Bill Gates. If the moon is made of green cheese then Im on welfare. If 1 + 1 = 3, then your grandma wears combat boots. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Understanding Implication 2 One way to view the logical conditional is to think of an obligation or contract. If I am elected, then I will lower taxes. If you get 100% on the final, then you will get an A. If the politician is elected and does not lower taxes, then the voters can say that he or she has broken the campaign pledge. Something similar holds for the professor. This corresponds to the

case where p is true and q is false. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Different Ways of Expressing p q if p, then q p implies q if p, q p only if q q unless p q when p q if p q whenever p p is sufficient for q q follows from p

q is necessary for p a necessary condition for p is q a sufficient condition for q is p 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Converse, Contrapositive, and Inverse From p q we can form new conditional statements . qp is the converse of p q q p is the contrapositive of p q p q is the inverse of p q Example: Find the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of It raining is a sufficient condition for my not going to town. Solution: converse: If I do not go to town, then it is raining. inverse: If it is not raining, then I will go to town. contrapositive: If I go to town, then it is not raining. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

Biconditional If p and q are propositions, then we can form the biconditional proposition p q, read as p if and only if q . The biconditional p q denotes the proposition with this truth table: p T T F F q T F T F Pq T F F T

If p denotes I am at home. and q denotes It is raining. then p q denotes I am at home if and only if it is raining. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Expressing the Biconditional Some alternative ways p if and only if q is expressed in English: p is necessary and sufficient for q if p then q, and conversely p if q 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

Truth Tables For Compound Propositions Construction of a truth table: Rows Need a row for every possible combination of values for the atomic propositions. Columns Need a column for the compound proposition (usually at far right) Need a column for the truth value of each expression that occurs in the compound proposition as it is built up. This includes the atomic propositions 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Example Truth Table Construct a truth table for p q r p T T T T

statement in propositional logic Identify atomic propositions and represent using propositional variables. Determine appropriate logical connectives If I go to Harrys or to the country, I will not go shopping. p: I go to Harrys If p or q then not r. q: I go to the country. r: I will go shopping. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education p q r Example Problem: Translate the following sentence into propositional logic: You can access the Internet from campus only if you are a computer science major or you are not a

freshman. One Solution: Let a, c, and f represent respectively You can access the internet from campus, You are a computer science major, and You are a freshman. a c f 2019 McGraw-Hill Education System Specifications System and Software engineers take requirements in English and express them in a precise specification language based on logic. Example: Express in propositional logic: The automated reply cannot be sent when the file system is full Solution: One possible solution: Let p denote The automated reply can be sent and q denote The file system is full. q p 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

Consistent System Specifications Definition: A list of propositions is consistent if it is possible to assign truth values to the proposition variables so that each proposition is true. Exercise: Are these specifications consistent? The diagnostic message is stored in the buffer or it is retransmitted. The diagnostic message is stored in the buffer. If the diagnostic message is stored in the buffer, then it is retransmitted. Solution: Let p denote The diagnostic message is stored in the buffer. Let q denote The diagnostic message is retransmitted The specification can be written as: p q, p, p q. When p is false and q is true all three statements are true. So the specification is consistent.

What if The diagnostic message is not retransmitted is added. Solution: Now we are adding q and there is no satisfying assignment. So the specification is not consistent. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Logic Puzzles Raymond Smullyan (Born 1919) An island has two kinds of inhabitants, knights, who always tell the truth, and knaves, who always lie. You go to the island and meet A and B. A says B is a knight.

B says The two of us are of opposite types. Example: What are the types of A and B? Solution: Let p and q be the statements that A is a knight and B is a knight, respectively. So, then p represents the proposition that A is a knave and q that B is a knave. If A is a knight, then p is true. Since knights tell the truth, q must also be true. Then (p q) ( p q) would have to be true, but it is not. So, A is not a knight and therefore p must be true. If A is a knave, then B must not be a knight since knaves always lie. So, then both p and q hold since both are knaves. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Logic Circuits (Studied in depth in Chapter 12)

Electronic circuits; each input/output signal can be viewed as a 0 or 1. 0 represents False 1 represents True Complicated circuits are constructed from three basic circuits called gates. The inverter (NOT gate)takes an input bit and produces the negation of that bit. The OR gate takes two input bits and produces the value equivalent to the disjunction of the two bits. The AND gate takes two input bits and produces the value equivalent to the conjunction of the two bits. More complicated digital circuits can be constructed by combining these basic circuits to produce the desired output given the input signals by building a circuit for each piece of the output expression and then combining them. For example:

2019 McGraw-Hill Education Diagnosis of Faults in an Electrical System (Optional) AI Example (from Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents by David Poole and Alan Mackworth, 2010) Need to represent in propositional logic the features of a piece of machinery or circuitry that are required for the operation to produce observable features. This is called the Knowledge Base (KB). We also have observations representing the features that the system is exhibiting now. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Electrical System Diagram (optional) Have lights (l1, l2), wires (w0, w1, w2, w3, w4), switches (s1, s2, s3), and

circuit breakers (cb1) The next page gives the knowledge base describing the circuit and the current observations. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Representing the Electrical System in Propositional Logic We need to represent our common-sense understanding of how the electrical system works in propositional logic. For example: If l1 is a light and if l1 is receiving current, then l1 is lit. light_l1 live_l1 ok_l1 lit_l1 Also: If w1 has current, and switch s2 is in the up position, and s2 is not broken, then w0 has current. live_w1 up_s2 ok_s2 live_w0 This task of representing a piece of our common-sense

world in logic is a common one in logic-based AI. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Knowledge Base (opt) live_outside We have outside power. light_l1 Both l1 and l2 are lights. light_l2 live_w0 live_l1 If s2 is ok and s2 is in a live_w1 up_s2 ok_s2 live_w0 down position and w2 live_w2 down_s2 ok_s2 has current, then w0 live_w0 has current. live_w3 up_s1 ok_s1 live_w1 live_w3 down_s1 ok_s1 live_w2 live_w4 live_l2 live_w3 up_s3 ok_s3 live_w4

These atoms are called assumables. The assumables (ok_cb1, ok_s1, ok_s2, ok_s3, ok_l1, ok_l2) represent the assumption that we assume that the switches,

lights, and circuit breakers are ok. If the system is working correctly (all assumables are true), the observations and the knowledge base are consistent (i.e., satisfiable). The augmented knowledge base is clearly not consistent if the assumables are all true. The switches are both up, but the lights are not lit. Some of the assumables must then be false. This is the basis for the method to diagnose possible faults in the system. A diagnosis is a minimal set of assumables which must be false to explain the observations of the system. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Diagnostic Results (opt) See Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents (by David Poole and Alan Mackworth, 2010) for details on this problem and how the method of consistency based diagnosis can determine possible diagnoses for the electrical system. The approach yields 7 possible faults in the system. At least one of these must hold: Circuit Breaker 1 is not ok.

Both Switch 1 and Switch 2 are not ok. Both Switch 1 and Light 2 are not ok. Both Switch 2 and Switch 3 are not ok. Both Switch 2 and Light 2 are not ok. Both Light 1 and Switch 3 are not ok. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Both Light 1 and Light 2 are not ok.

Solution: Construct the truth table for the proposition. Then an equivalent proposition is the disjunction with n disjuncts (where n is the number of rows for which the formula evaluates to T). Each disjunct has m conjuncts where m is the number of distinct propositional variables. Each conjunct includes the positive form of the propositional variable if the variable is assigned T in that row and the negated form if the variable is assigned F in that row. This proposition is in disjunctive normal from. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

(CNF) if it is a conjunction of disjunctions. Every proposition can be put in an equivalent CNF. Conjunctive Normal Form (CNF) can be obtained by eliminating implications, moving negation inwards and using the distributive and associative laws. Important in resolution theorem proving used in artificial Intelligence (AI). A compound proposition can be put in conjunctive normal form through repeated application of the logical equivalences covered earlier. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education 1 Conjunctive Normal Form (optional) Example: Put the following into CNF: p q r p Solution: 1. Eliminate implication signs: p q r p 2. Move negation inwards; eliminate double negation:

p q r p 3. Convert to CNF using associative/distributive laws p 2019 McGraw-Hill Education r p q r p 2 Propositional Satisfiability A compound proposition is satisfiable if there is an assignment of truth values to its variables that make it true. When no such assignments exist, the compound proposition is unsatisfiable. A compound proposition is unsatisfiable if and only if its negation is a tautology.

2019 McGraw-Hill Education Questions on Propositional Satisfiability Example: Determine the satisfiability of the following compound propositions: p q q r r p Solution: Satisfiable. Assign T to p, q, and r. p q r p q r Solution: Satisfiable. Assign T to p and F to q. p q q r r p p q r p q r

Solution: Not satisfiable. Check each possible assignment of truth values to the propositional variables and none will make the proposition true. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Notation n j 1 n j 1 p j is used for p1 p2 pn p j is used for p1 p2 pn Needed for the next example. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

Sudoku A Sudoku puzzle is represented by a 99 grid made up of nine 33 subgrids, known as blocks. Some of the 81 cells of the puzzle are assigned one of the numbers 1,2, , 9. The puzzle is solved by assigning numbers to each blank cell so that every row, column and block contains each of the nine possible numbers. Example 2019 McGraw-Hill Education Encoding as a Satisfiability Problem Let p(i,j,n) denote the proposition that is true when the number n is in the cell in the ith row and the jth column. There are 9 9 9 = 729 such propositions. In the sample puzzle p(5,1,6) is true, but p(5,j,6) is false for j = 2,3,9 2019 McGraw-Hill Education

Take the conjunction over all values of n, n, i, and j, where each variable ranges from 1 to 9 and n n , of p i, j , n p i, j , n

2019 McGraw-Hill Education 3 Solving Satisfiability Problems To solve a Sudoku puzzle, we need to find an assignment of truth values to the 729 variables of the form p(i,j,n) that makes the conjunction of the assertions true. Those variables that are assigned T yield a solution to the puzzle. A truth table can always be used to determine the satisfiability of a compound proposition. But this is too complex even for modern computers for large problems. There has been much work on developing efficient methods for solving satisfiability problems as many practical problems can be translated into satisfiability problems. 2019 McGraw-Hill Education
