Notation Table


Polish- or Łukasiewicz's notation for logic

Concept Conventional
Polish / English
w:Negation   negation (No)}
Conjunction   Kφψ conjunction
w:Disjunction   Aφψ alternate OR=disjunction
w:Material conditional   Cφψ implication
w:Biconditional   Eφψ equivalence'
w:Falsum   O False value
w:Sheffer stroke   Dφψ Sheffer stroke
Possibility   contingent
Necessity   Necessary condition
w:Universal quantifier Πpφ kwantyfikator ogólny ANY:

For all p, \phi|Universal quantifier

Existential quantifier   Σpφ Exists
  • Note that the quantifiers ranged over propositional values in Łukasiewicz's work on many-valued logics.
