## What is first order logic examples?

Definition A first-order predicate logic sentence G over S is a tautology if F |= G holds for every S-structure F. Examples of tautologies (a) ∀x.P(x) → ∃x.P(x); (b) ∀x.P(x) → P(c); (c) P(c) → ∃x.P(x); (d) ∀x(P(x) ↔ ¬¬P(x)); (e) ∀x(¬(P1(x) ∧ P2(x)) ↔ (¬P1(x) ∨ ¬P2(x))).

## What is a valid formula of first order logic?

A first-order formula F over signature σ is satisfiable if A |= F for some σ-structure A. If F is not satisfiable it is called unsatisfiable. **F is called valid if A |= F for every σ-structure A**. Given a set of formulas S we write S |= F to mean that every σ-structure A that satisfies S also satisfies F.

## What is a first order formula?

**A formula in first-order logic with no free variable occurrences** is called a first-order sentence. These are the formulas that will have well-defined truth values under an interpretation. For example, whether a formula such as Phil(x) is true must depend on what x represents.

## What is first order and second-order logic?

First-order logic uses only variables that range over individuals (elements of the domain of discourse); second-order logic has these variables as well as additional variables that range over sets of individuals.
