1 Discrete Math Review Discrete Math Review (Rosen, Chapter ) TOPICS Propositional Logic Logical Operators Truth Tables Implication Logical Equivalence Inference Rules What you should know about propositional and predicate logic before the next midterm! Less theory, more problem solving, will be repeated in recitation and homework. 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Propositional Logic A proposition is a statement that is either true or false Examples: Fort Collins is in Nebraska (false) Java is case sensitive (true) We are not alone in the universe (?) Every proposition is true or false, but its truth value may be unknown Logical Operators logical not (negation) logical or (disjunction) logical and (conjunction) logical exclusive or logical implication (conditional) logical bi-implication (biconditional) 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester

2 Truth Tables p q p q T T T T F F F T F F F F p q p q T T T T F F F T T F F T (1) You should be able to write out the truth table for all logical operators, from memory. 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Compound Propositions Propositions and operators can be combined into compound propositions. (2) You should be able to make a truth table for any compound proposition: p q p p q p (p q) T T F T F T F F F F F T T T T F F T T T 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester (3) You should be able to translate natural language to logic (can be ambiguous!): English: If the car is out of gas, then it will stop Logic: English to Propositional Logic p equals the car is out of gas q equals the car will stop p q Propositional Logic to English (4) You should be able to translate propositional logic to natural language: Logic: p equals it is raining p q English: q equals the grass will be wet If it is raining, the grass will be wet. 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester

3 Logical Equivalences: Definition Certain propositions are equivalent (meaning they share exactly the same truth values): For example: (p q) p q De Morgan s (p T) p Identity Law (p p) F Negation Law Logical Equivalences: Truth Tables (5) And you should know how to prove logical equivalence with a truth table For example: (p q) p q p q p q (p q) (p q) p q T T F F T F F T F F T F T T F T T F F T T F F T T F T T 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Logical Equivalences: Review (6) You should understand the logical equivalences and laws on the course web site. You should be able to prove any of them using a truth table that compares the truth values of both sides of the equivalence. Memorization of the logical equivalences is not required in this class. Logical Equivalences (Rosen) 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester

4 Transformation via Logical Equivalences Vocabulary (7) You should be able to transform propositions using logical equivalences. Prove: p (p q) (p q) p (p q) ( p p) ( p q) T ( p q) ( p q) (p q) Distributive law Negation law Domination law De Morgan s Law 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester (8) You should memorize the following vocabulary: A tautology is a compound proposition that is always true. A contradiction is a compound proposition that is always false. A contingency is neither a tautology nor a contradiction. And know how to decide the category for a compound proposition. 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Examples Logical Proof p p p p p p T F T F F T T F Result is always true, no matter what A is Therefore, it is a tautology Result is always false, no matter what A is Therefore, it is a contradiction Given a set of axioms Statements asserted to be true Prove a conclusion Another propositional statement In other words: Show that the conclusion is true whenever the axioms are true 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester

5 Logical Proof (9) You should be able to perform a logical proof via truth tables. (10) You should be able to perform a logical proof via inference rules. Both methods are described in the following slides. Method 1: Proof by Truth Table Prove that p q, given p p q p p q T T F T T F F F F T T T F F T T For all rows in which axiom is true, conclusion is true Thus the conclusion follows from axiom 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Method 2: Proof using Rules of Inference A rule of inference is a proven relation: when the left hand side (LHS) is true, the right hand side (RHS) is also true. Therefore, if we can match an axiom to the LHS by substituting propositions, we can assert the (substituted) RHS Applying rules of inference Example rule: p, p q q Read as p and p q, therefore q This rule has a name: modus ponens If you have axioms r, r s Substitute r for p, s for q Apply modus ponens Conclude s 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester

6 Modus Ponens If p, and p implies q, then q Example: p = it is sunny, q = it is hot p q, it is hot whenever it is sunny Given the above, if it is sunny, it must be hot. Modus Tollens If not q and p implies q, then not p Example: p = it is sunny, q = it is hot p q, it is hot whenever it is sunny Given the above, if it is not hot, it cannot be sunny. 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Rules of Inference (Rosen) A Simple Proof: Problem Statement Example of a complete proof using inference rules, from English to propositional logic and back: If you don t go to the store, then you cannot not cook dinner. (axiom) If you cannot cook dinner or go out, you will be hungry tonight. (axiom) You are not hungry tonight, and you didn t go to the store. (axiom) You must have gone out to dinner. (conclusion) 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester

7 A Simple Proof: Logic Translation A Simple Proof: Applying Inference p: you go to the store q: you can cook dinner r: you will go out s: you will be hungry AXIOMS: p q, (q r) s, s, p CONCLUSION: r p q, (q r) s, s, p p, p q q modus ponens s, (q r) s q r modus tollens q, q r r disjunctive syllogism CONCLUSION: r You must have gone out to dinner! 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester Predicate Logic Predicate Logic (cont d) (11) You should recognize predicate logic symbols, i.e. quantifications. Quantification express the extent to which a predicate is true over a set of elements: Universal, for all Existential, there exists (12) You should able to translate between predicate logic and English, in both directions. Specifies a proposition (and optionally a domain), for example: x N, -10 < x < -5 x N, x > -1 // False, since no negative x // True, since no negative x Predicate logic has similar equivalences and inference rules (De Morgan s): x: P(x) = x : P(x) // True for all = false for none x: P(x) = x : P(x) // Not true for all = false for some 10/1/12 CS160 Fall Semester /1/12 CS160 Fall Semester
