  Logical conjunction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In logic and mathematics, logical conjunction (usual symbol and) is a two-place logical operation that results in a value of true if both of its operands are true, otherwise a value of false.
Logical conjunction is an operation on two logical values, typically the values of two propositions, that produces a value of true if and only if both of its operands are true.
The analogue of conjunction for a (possibly infinite) family of statements is universal quantification, which is part of predicate logic.

 Logical conjunction - Gurupedia
In logic and technical fields that use it, conjunction, or and, is a logical operator in logical calculi.
Conjunction as we've described it is a binary operator, meaning that it combines two terms into a single statement.
The analogue of conjunction for a (possibly infinite) familiy of statements is universal quantification, which is part of predicate logic.

 Chronic Conjunctivitis -- Recommendations and Resources   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva (the outermost layer of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids), often due to infection.
Viral conjunctivitis is due to spread by aerosol or contact of a variety of contagious viruses, including many that cause the 'common cold', so that it is often associated with upper respiratory tract symptoms.
In linguistics, a conjunct is an adverbial that adds information to the sentence that not considered part of the propositional content (or at least not essential) but which connects the sentence with previous parts of the discourse.

 Universal quantification
In predicate logic and technical fields that depend on it, universal quantification is an attempt to formalise the notion of something being true for all things, or all things of a certain type.
This would seem to be a logical conjunction because of the repeated use of "and".
Indeed, these formulations may be used as definitions in an interpretation of typed logic in terms of untyped logic, or in a formalisation of set theory.

 Negation - Wikipedia
In logic, logical negation is a unary logical operator that reverses the truth value of its operand.
In classical logic, double negation means affirmation; i.e., the statements p and ~(~p) are logically equivalent.
Algebraically, logical negation corresponds to the complement in a Boolean algebra (for classical logic) or a Heyting algebra[?] (for intuitionistic logic).

 23 Conjunction
Logical conjunction of two theses simply affirms both of them as true, implying that they are true separately as well as together.
Note that a positive conjunction is denied by negating any one, or any set, or all, of its parts, which means that one of the remaining alternative positive conjunctions must be true; thus, nonconjunction may be viewed as an abridged reference to the outstanding conjunctions.
Conjunction may of course involve more than two theses, as in 'P and Q and R and..'., signifying that they are all true individually as well as collectively.

To test for logical equivalence of 2 statements, construct a truth table that includes every variable to be evaluated, and then check to see if the resulting truth values of the 2 statements are equivalent.
The negation of a conjunction (logical AND) of 2 statements is logically equivalent to the disjunction (logical OR) of each statement's negation.
Logical equivalencies can be used to simplify statement forms, to confirm or disprove an equivalency, to create efficient and logically correct computer programs, or to aid in the design of digital logic circuits.

 Combinations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
For example fuzzy conjunction was defined (for simple cases) with a minimum rule, whereby the truth of the conjunction of two expressions was the minimum of the two individual truth values.
Both the judgment of categorization (Hampton, 1988) and of probability (Tversky and Kahneman, 1983) depend on an assessment of similarity of the instance to the representation of the conjunctive category, and a corresponding tendency to overextend the boundaries of the conjunction, or overestimate the probability that an individual belongs to it.
Furthermore if membership of the conjunctive class is determined by how similar an instance is to the composite prototype, then it is relatively straightforward to demonstrate that one would therefore expect a pattern of overextension and/or underextension, rather than the application of a "logical" intersection rule.

 The Meanings of Logical Constants
The meanings of logical constants are determined by the role these constants play in reasoning, whereas the meanings of non-logical predicates are not to the same extent determined by the role such predicates play in reasoning.
P logically excludes N(P) N(P) logically excludes P. These rules express the truth conditions for negative propositions in exactly the way in which the rules for disjunction in a multiple conclusion logic express the truth conditions of disjunctive propositions.
I have not been able to respond to all her worries, To mention one point, she argued forcefully that the meanings of the logical constants might be determined holistically in the sense that, for example the meaning of disjunction might be affected by whether classical negation was present.

Logic asserts that any meaningful statement or proposition P is either true or false, that it cannot be both and cannot be neither.

For example, a logical volume could be designated a file system's root volume by naming it "root", or a physical volume could be named "sales mirror 1" to remind administrators of its purpose.

 [Inquiry] Re: Logic Of Relatives
Peirce, in his turn, taking a very significant step of analysis that has seldom been recognized for what it would lead to, much less followed, does not consider this multiplication to be a fundamental operation, but derives it as a by-product of relative multiplication by a comma relative.
This opens up a very wide field of investigation, "the operational significance of logical terms", one might say, but it will be best to advance bit by bit, and to lean on simple examples.
Further insight into the laws that govern this realm of logic, and the underlying reasons why they apply, might be gained by systematically working through the whole variety of different products that are generated by the operational means in sight, namely, the products indicated by {1, m, n, w}<,>{1, m, n, w}.

Thus, just as any logical function can be written using only three operations  (logical negation or NOT), \/ (logical disjunction or OR), and /\ (logical conjunction or AND), three corresponding R-functions can be combined into a corresponding R-function.
Expressed another way, for every formal logical sentence (i.e., for every Boolean function), one may construct a corresponding R-function using R-conjunction, R-disjunction, and R-negation, whose sign is determined by the truth table of the logical sentence.
The logical disjunction \/ and conjunction /\ operations can respectively be accomplished in the usual case by performing intersection and union operations.
