CSE541 EXERCISE 5 SOLUTIONS QUESTION 1 Given a proof system: S = ( L , ⇒} , E = F AX = { ( A A ) , ( A ( ¬ A B )) } , ( r ) ( A B ) ( B ( A B )) ) . Definition: System S is sound if and only if (i) Axioms are tautologies and (ii) rules of inference are sound, i.e lead from all true premisses to a true conclusion. 1. Prove that S is sound under classical semantics. Solution: (i) Both axioms of S are basic classical tautologies. (ii) Consider the rule of inference of S . ( r ) ( A B ) ( B ( A B )) . Assume that its premise (the only premise) is True, i.e. let v be any truth assignment, such that v * ( A B ) = T . We evaluate logical value of the conclusion under the truth assignment v as follows. v * ( B ( A B )) = v * ( B ) T = T for any B and any value of v * ( B ). 2. Prove that S is not sound under K semantics. Solution: Axiom ( A A ) is not a K semantics tautology. QUESTION 2 Write a formal proof in

Unformatted text preview: S dened in Question 1 with 2 applications of the rule ( r ). Solution: Required formal proof is a sequence A 1 ,A 2 ,A 3 , where A 1 = ( A A ) (Axiom) A 2 = ( A ( A A )) Rule ( r ) application 1 for A = A, B = A . A 3 = (( A A ) ( A ( A A ))) Rule ( r ) application 2 for A = A,B = ( A A ). 1 QUESTION 3 Prove, by constructing a formal proof that S (( A B ) ( A ( A B ))) . Solution: Required formal proof is a sequence A 1 ,A 2 , where A 1 = ( A ( A B )) Axiom A 2 = (( A B ) ( A ( A B ))) Rule ( r ) application for A = A,B = ( A B ). 2...
