disjunction
disjunction A logical expression of the form a_{1} ∨ a_{2} ∨ … ∨ a_{n}
where ∨ is the OR operation. A particular disjunction of interest is the disjunctive normal form of a Boolean expression involving n variables, x_{1}, x_{2},…, x_{n}. Each a_{i} is then of the form (y_{1} ∧ y_{2} ∧ … y_{n})
where ∧ is the AND operation and each y_{i} is equal to x_{i} or the complement of x_{i}. Reducing expressions to disjunctive normal form provides a ready method of determining the equivalence of two Boolean expressions. See also propositional calculus. Compare conjunction.
