QUESTION 1 Let GL be the Gentzen style proof system for classical logic defined in chapter 11. Prove, by constructing a proper decomposition tree that (1) GL (( a b ) ( b a )). Solution: By definition we have that GL (( a b ) ( b a )) if and only if GL (( a b ) ( b a )) . We construct the decomposition tree for A as follows. T A (( a b ) ( b a ))  ( ) ( a b ) ( b a )  ( ) b, ( a b ) a  ( ) ( a b ) b,a ^ (  ) a,b,a  ( ) a b,a axiom b b,a axiom All leaves of the tree T A are axioms, hence we have found the proof of A in GL . 1 (2) Let GL be the Gentzen style proof system defined in chapter 11. Prove, by constructing a proper decom position tree that 6 GL (( a b ) ( b a )) . Solution: Observe that for any formula A , its decomposition tree T A in GL is not unique. Hence when constructing decomposition trees we have to cover all possible cases. We construct the decomposition tree for A as follows. T 1 A (( a b ) ( b a ))  ( ) ( one choice ) ( a b ) ( b a )  ( ) ( first of two choices ) b, ( a b ) a  ( ) ( one choice ) ( a b ) b,a ^ (  ) ( one choice ) a,b,a non axiom b b,a axiom The tree contains a non axiom leaf a,b,a, hence it is not a proof of (( a b ) ( b a )) in GL . We have only one more tree to construct. Here it is. 2 T 2 A (( a b ) ( b a ))  ( ) ( one choice ) ( a b ) ( b a ) ^ (  ) ( second of two choices ) ( b a ) ,a ( ) ( one choice ) b a,a  ( ) ( one choice ) b,a,a non axiom b ( b a )  ( ) ( one choice ) b, b a  ( ) ( one choice ) b b,a axiom All possible trees end with an nonaxiom leave whet proves that 6 GL (( a b ) ( b a )) . QUESTION 2 Does the tree below constitute a proof in GL ? Justify your answer. T A (( a b ) ( b a ))  ( ) (( a b ) ( b a )) 3  ( ) (( a b ) ( b a ))  ( ) ( a b ) ( b a )  ( ) ( a b ) , b a  ( ) ( a b ) b,a ^ (  ) a,b,a  ( ) a b,a axiom b b,a axiom Solution: The tree is a not a proof in GL because a rule corresponding to the decomposition step below does not exists in it....
