## Is computer science logic based?

**Logic plays a fundamental role in computer science**. Some of the key areas of logic that are particularly significant are computability theory (formerly called recursion theory), modal logic and category theory.

## What is the meaning of Deontic logic?

Deontic logic is a branch of logic that has been the most concerned with the contribution that the following sorts of notions make to what follows from what (or what supports what, more generally): permissible (permitted) impermissible (forbidden, prohibited) obligatory (duty, required)

## What are Deontic conditionals?

Deontic conditional rules are **intended to regulate people’s actions under certain conditions**. Take, for example, the following two rules: (1) “If a person has a ticket, then this person may enter.” (2) “If there is a stop-sign at the crossroads, then the driver must stop.”

## Do you need logic for computer science?

For students of computer science, **the study of logic is essential**. Logic is also very valuable for mathematicians. Most logic courses include analyses of the features of deductive inference.

## What type of logic is used in computer science?

Logic in computer science (or **computational logic**) is that branch of mathematical logic which is approximately the intersection between mathematical logic and computer science. It contains: Those investigations into logic that are guided by applications in computer science.

## What logic gates are used in computers?

There are seven basic logic gates: **AND, OR, XOR, NOT, NAND, NOR, and XNOR**. The AND gate is so named because, if 0 is called “false” and 1 is called “true,” the gate acts in the same way as the logical “and” operator. The following illustration and table show the circuit symbol and logic combinations for an AND gate.

## How is logic used in computing?

Logic is used **for databases or for creating artificial intelligence**. But logic does not only help a computer to view the world, it also offers the possibility of introspection: computer codes can check other computer codes and look for logical errors. “It is similar to the way we humans think”, says Helmut Veith.
