conjunction (logic)




A logical proposition produced by joining two simple propositions by "and". An example is the proposition "Bill is kind and Bill is honest"; it is true only if both parts are separately true. The conjunction of two simple propositions, P and Q, is written PQ (or, equivalently, P ^ Q), read "P and Q".
