## Questions and Answers

What is the limitation of propositional logic in dealing with statements that apply to all people who are 18 years or older?

Propositional logic is not expressive enough to deal with quantified variables.

What is the goal of an optimization algorithm?

The goal of an optimization algorithm is to find the optimal solution that minimizes or maximizes a given objective function.

What is predicate logic, and how does it extend propositional logic?

Predicate logic is an extension of propositional logic that adds the concept of predicates and quantifiers to better capture the meaning of statements.

## Study Notes

### Predicate Logic

- Predicate logic is an extension of propositional logic that adds the concept of predicates and quantifiers to better capture the meaning of statements.
- It is used to deal with quantified variables and statements that cannot be adequately expressed by propositional logic.

### Propositional Logic

- Propositional logic is used to validate the form of an argument that takes us from premises to a conclusion.
- It cannot be used to establish the truth of a proposition that isn't given as a premise or which can't be inferred by the laws of inference.
- There are five types of compound sentences in propositional logic: negations, conjunctions, disjunctions, implications, and biconditionals.
- Propositional symbols represent sentences about the world, which can be either true or false.
- There are three types of persuasive propositions: propositions of fact, value, or policy.

### Optimization Algorithms

- Optimization algorithms are used to find the best possible solution to a given problem.
- The goal of an optimization algorithm is to find the optimal solution that minimizes or maximizes a given objective function.
- Optimization methods are used to find the optimal solution.

### Algorithm Efficiency

- There are two kinds of algorithm efficiency: space efficiency and time efficiency.
- Features of an efficient algorithm include:
- Exact steps to precisely specify what to do at each step.
- Well-ordered steps with a concretely defined order of operations.
- Feasibility, meaning all steps are possible and effectively computable.

- Efficiency and effectiveness are different: effectiveness measures the quality of results, while efficiency measures the speed and resources used.

### Logical Gates

- Boolean algebra is a branch of mathematics that deals with operations on logical values with binary variables.
- Boolean variables are represented as binary numbers: 1 = TRUE and 0 = FALSE.
- Elementary algebra deals with numerical operations, whereas Boolean algebra deals with logical operations.
- Boolean algebra is used in computer programming languages and is fundamental in the development of digital electronics systems.
- Boolean algebra operations include:
- Negation or NOT Operation
- Conjunction or AND Operation
- Disjunction or OR Operation

- These operations have their own symbols and precedence.

### Specific Gates

- OR gate: performs the logical addition of its inputs, output is high (1) if any one or both inputs are high (1).
- NAND gate: the output is high (1) if any one of the inputs is zero (0).
- NOR gate: the output is high (1) if all inputs are low (0).
- EX-OR gate: the output is high (1) if the inputs are different.
- EX-NOR gate: the output is high (1) if the inputs are the same.

### Turing Machine

- Turing Machine was invented by Alan Turing in 1936.
- It is used to accept Recursive Enumerable Languages (generated by Type-0 Grammar).
- Turing machines are a fundamental concept in the theory of computation and play an important role in computer science.
