Terms : a constant, variable, or f ( t 1 , , t n ) for some function f and terms t 1 , , t n . Well-formed formulas : 1. atomic formulas: P ( t 1 , , t n ) for some predicate P and terms t 1 , , t n . 2. constructed from wffs using connectives. 3. constructed from wffs using quantifiers: ( x ), ( x ). Free and bound variables : an occurrence of a variable x is free if it is not in the scope of a quantifier x or x . If not free, a variable is bound. A sentence is a wff if all variables are bound.
