Maths / Logic and Modelling – CNF

This is going to be the first post I’m going to write that is valid for BOTH year 1 and year 2. Just in case you get confused as to who should be reading it πŸ˜‰

CNF is short for Conjunctive Normal Form. A formula is in CNF if it is True (T) or False ( _|_ ) or a conjunction of disjunctions:

From these simplifications, we may even discover that we don’t always need to find the truth values for all Boolean variables in the formula.

Logic and Modelling – Propositional Logic

OK, first things first. I am only doing these LaM notes because i’ve been begged to do them πŸ˜›

Since a lot of Propositional Logic is extremely basic, then I am going to be quick a brief on these notes. However, do note that they are slightly more advanced than what you learnt in previous years, like here: Year 1 PL

So, with this, lets get down to the nitty gritty πŸ˜€
