This Week Introduction to First Order Logic

(Sections 3.1—3.3) Predicates and Logic Functions Quantifiers Basic Logic Using Quantifiers Implication, negation rules for quantifiers

Propositional Functions Propositional function (open sentence): Statement involving one or more

variables,

e.g.: P(x) = x-3 > 5. Let us call this propositional function

P(x), where P is the predicate and x is the variable.

What is the truth value of P(2) ? false

What is the truth value of P(8) ?

What is the truth value of P(9) ?

false

true

Propositional Functions Let us consider the propositional function

Q(x, y, z) defined as:

Q(x, y, z) = x + y = z. Here, Q is the predicate and x, y, and z

are the variables.What is the truth value of Q(2, 3, 5) ? true

What is the truth value of Q(0, 1, 2) ?

What is the truth value of Q(9, -9, 0) ?

false

true

Function Domains Propositional functions are just like mathematical

functions, they must have a domain: Real numbers Integers People

Domains are used to clarify the purpose of the predicate Let x be the set of all Students. Let FT(x) = x is a full time

student Sometimes domains are extremely important, particularly

with if-then statements

Universal Quantification Let P(x) be a propositional function.

Universally quantified sentence: For all x in the universe of discourse P(x) is true.

Using the universal quantifier : x P(x) “for all x P(x)” or “for every x P(x)”

(Note: x P(x) is either true or false, so it is a proposition, not a propositional function.)

Universal Quantification Example: S(x): x is a B-W student. G(x): x is a genius.

What does x (S(x) G(x)) mean ?

“If x is a UMBC student, then x is a genius.” OR “All UMBC students are geniuses.”

Existential Quantification Existentially quantified sentence: There exists an x in the universe of discourse

for which P(x) is true.

Using the existential quantifier : x P(x) “There is an x such that P(x).” “There is at least one x such that P(x).”

(Note: x P(x) is either true or false, so it is a proposition, not a propositional function.)

Existential Quantification Example: P(x): x is a B-W professor. G(x): x is a genius.

What does x (P(x) G(x)) mean ?

“There is an x such that x is a UMBC professor and x is a genius.”OR

“At least one B-W professor is a genius.”

Quantifiers, Predicates and Domains

A properly defined quantified statement will have predicates and domains clearly specified How do we say there is a value for x that makes (5x =3)

true? Let x be the set of all real numbers R Let P(x) = (5x = 3) x P(x)

Sometimes, this is more trouble than it’s worth to be this clear so we’ll use shorthand: x in real numbers such that 5x = 3 Or, even shorter: x in R, 5x = 3

Finally, if predicates are used (particularly with implication) but no quantifier is given, then assume is used: P(x) → Q(x) ≡∀x P(x) → Q(x)

Exercise 2.1.1 Re-write each statement using and (sometimes

both!) as appropriate: a) There Exists a negative real x such that x2=8

b) For every nonzero real a, there is a real b such that ab = 1

c) All even integers are positive

d) Some integers are prime

e) If n2=4 then n = 2

Exercise 2.1.2 Determine the truth values of the following statements:

a) For all real numbers x, x2 ≥ 0

b) For all real numbers x, x2 > 0

c) There is an integer n such that n2 = 4

d) There is an integer n such that n2 = 3

e) For all integers x, If x = 2 then x2 = 4

f) If x2 = 4 then x = 2

Truth Values of Quantified Statements

Take the statement: ∀vertebrates a, Bird(a) → Fly(a) Is it True? Disproof by Counter-example

Take the statement: ∃species s, Pig(s) ∧ Fly(s) Is it True? How do we disprove this one? Disproof by exhaustive search

Picking domains carefully here can make search easier

In Reality, ∀ is a generalized version of AND (∧) and ∃ is a generalized version of OR ∨:• To say ∀x P(x) means we are saying P(x) is true for everything in the world at the same time• ∀x P(x) ≡P(x1) ∧ P(x2) ∧… ∧P(xn)•To say that ∃x P(x) means we are saying that P(x) is true for at least one (or more or ALL) thing in the world• ∃x P(x) ≡P(x1) ∨ P(x2) ∨… ∨P(xn)

Generalized DeMorgan’s DeMorgan’s law can apply to longer

expressions as long as the connective used is the same throughout: ¬(p ∧ q ∧r ∧z) ≡¬p ∨ ¬q ∨¬r ∨¬z Repeatedly apply associative laws to see

how this works So if ∀and ∃ are just short-hand for ∧

and ∨ then what happens if we negate them?

Negating Quantified Statements ∀x P(x) ≡P(x1) ∧ P(x2) ∧… ∧P(xn) ∃x P(x) ≡P(x1) ∨ P(x2) ∨… ∨P(xn) ¬(∀x P(x)) ≡¬(P(x1) ∧ P(x2) ∧… ∧P(xn))

≡¬P(x1) ∨ ¬P(x2) ∨… ∨¬P(xn) ≡∃x ¬P(x)

¬(∃x P(x)) ≡¬(P(x1) ∨ P(x2) ∨… ∨P(xn)) ≡¬P(x1) ∧ ¬P(x2) ∧… ∧¬P(xn) ≡∀x ¬P(x)

Tying It All Together Things seem strange now…logic functions…

predicates…quantifiers… Everything we learned before today is still

applicable: Theorem 2.1.1 (laws for simplification) Implication elimination/negation Converse/contrapositive/inverse Any other equivalences/tautologies/contradictions

Truth tables can be used, but less frequently at this point

Exercise 2.1.3 Write negations for the following

statements: a) For all numbers x, x2 > 0

b) There is an integer n such that n2 = 3

c) All even integers are positive

d) Some integers are prime

Exercise 2.1.3 cont.a) For any real x, if x ≥ 0, then x2≥x

b) For any integer n, if n2=n, then n =

c) Some dogs go to hell

d) EVERYBODY fails MTH 161!

Exercise 2.1.4 Rewrite the following using ∀ and ∃, then determine the

truth value of each statement (hint: negating the statement can help—HOW?): a) All even integers are positive

b) Some integers are prime

c) There is a positive real x such that x2 ≥ x3

d) For any real x, if x ≥ 1, then x2 ≥ x

2.1.4 continueda) For any integer n, if n2 = n, then n = 0

b) For any real x, if x2 = -1, then x = -1

c) If n2 = 4, then n = 2

Major Pitfalls with Conditionals Remember how we interpret implication

If you can’t prove me wrong, then I’m right For what things in the world is student(x) → smart(x)

true? Smart students Anybody who is not a student (vacuously true case)

When is ∀people x, student(x) → smart(x) true? When is it false?

When is ∃person x, student(x) → smart(x) true? When is it false? If we meant to say, ‘there exists a student who is smart’

how do we fix this?

Common Uses of Quantifiers Universal quantifiers are often used with “implies”

to form “rules”:(x) student(x) smart(x) means “All students are smart”

Universal quantification is rarely used to make blanket statements about every individual in the world: (x)student(x)smart(x) means “Everyone in the world is

a student and is smart” Existential quantifiers are usually used with “and” to

specify a list of properties about an individual:(x) student(x) smart(x) means “There is a student who

is smart”

Using Multiple Variables, Quantifiers

We already saw a multivariable predicate: Q(x, y, z) = x + y = z.

We can quantify this as (for example): ∃real x∃real y∃real z, such that Q(x,y,z)

Read this as: there exist real number values x, y, and z such that the sum of x and y is z

We can also mix-and-match quantifiers, but it’s trickier and in English it can be confusing: ‘There is a person supervising every detail of the

production process’ Work out on the board

Understanding Mixed Quantifiers Here’s how you could ‘determine’ the

truth of the following: ∀x in D, ∃y in E such that P(x,y)

Have a friend pick anything in D, then you have to find something in E that makes P(x,y) true

If you ever fail, then the statement is false (counterexample).

∃x in D such that ∀y in E, P(x,y) You need to pick a ‘trump card’: Pick one item

from D such that no matter what someone picks out of E, P(x,y) will be true

Your friend should always fail to prove you wrong

Exercise 2.2.1 Express the following using ∀ and ∃,

then evaluate the truth of the expressiona) For any real x, there is a real y such that x

+ y = 0

b) There is a real x such that for any real y, x ≤ y

c) For any real x, there is a real y such that y < x

Less Mathematical Practice (2.2.2)Every gardener likes the sun.

x gardener(x) likes(x,Sun) You can fool some of the people all of the time.

x t person(x) time(t) can-fool(x,t)You can fool all of the people some of the time.

x t (person(x) time(t) can-fool(x,t))x (person(x) t (time(t) can-fool(x,t))

All purple mushrooms are poisonous.x (mushroom(x) purple(x)) poisonous(x)

No purple mushroom is poisonous.x purple(x) mushroom(x) poisonous(x) x (mushroom(x) purple(x)) poisonous(x)

Logic to English Translation (2.2.3)a) x person(x) male(x) v female(x)

b) x male(x) ^ person(x)

c) x boy(x) male(x) ^ young(x)

Negating Mixed Quantifiers Easy: just apply the negation rule we

learned earlier for quantifiers, moving the negation in bit-by-bit: ¬(∀x in D, ∃y in E such that P(x,y))≡∃x in D, ¬(E y in E such that P(x,y))≡∃x in D, ∀y in E such that ¬P(x,y)

Works same for ∃x in D such that ∀y in E, P(x,y) Work out on board!

Exercise 2.2.4 Negate the following until all negation

signs are touching a predicate:a) ∀x ∀y, P(x,y)

b) ∀x∃y, (P(x) ∧ Z(x,y))

c) ∃x∀y, (P(x) →R(y))

Order Matters (half the time)! If all your quantifiers are the same, you can put

them in any order and the meaning remains: ∀reals x, ∀ reals y, x + y = y + x

≡∀reals y, ∀ reals x, x + y = y + x Similar for ∃

You have to be VERY careful about the order of mixed quantifiers: What is the difference between:

∀people x, ∃a person y such that loves(x,y)∃person x such that ∀people y, loves(x,y)

Valid Arguments Using Quantifiers Quantifiers help avoid having to name

everything in the domain But what if we reach a point where we

are looking at a particular item? What can we conclude about that item, if

all we have a quantified statements?

Universal Instantiation Rule of Universal Instantiation:

If some property is true of EVERYTHING in a domain, then it is true of any PARTICULAR thing in that domain

x in D, P(x) is TRUE for all things in the domain D

Now, observe an item a from the domain D: Can we conclude anything? P(a) has to be true

Universal Modus Ponens x in D, P(x) Q(x)

P(a) is true for a particular a in DTherefore, Q(a) is true

Universal instantiation makes this work. How?

Universal Modus Tollens x in D, P(x) Q(x)

Q(a) for some particular a in DTherefore, P(a)

Same Reasoning about Universal Instantiation here, as well!

Universal Modus Ponens or Universal Modus Tollens?

a) All good cars are expensiveA smarty is not expensiveTherefore, a smarty is not a good car

b) Any sum of two rational numbers is rationalThe numbers a and b are rationalTherefore, a + b is rational

Fill In The Blanks (Modus Ponens or Modus Tollens)

If n is even, then n = 2k for some integer k(4x + 2) is evenTherefore, _________________

If m is odd, then m = 2k + 1 for some integer kr 2i + 1 for any integer ITherefore, __________________

n is even if and only if n = 2k for some integer k(m + 1)2 = 2l and l is an integerTherefore, __________________

Other Quantified Arguments All of the arguments we looked at in CH 2

have a quantified version of one form or another

Universal Transitivity: x P(x) Q(x)

x Q(x) R(x)x P(x) R(x)

Invalid arguments can be quantified as well, so be careful! Don’t forget about Converse, Inverse error
