Conjunction with Negative Equivalent to Negation of Implication/Formulation 2

Theorem

$\vdash \left({p \land \neg q}\right) \iff \left({\neg \left({p \implies q}\right)}\right)$

This can be expressed as two separate theorems:

Forward Implication

$\vdash \left({p \land \neg q}\right) \implies \left({\neg \left({p \implies q}\right)}\right)$

Reverse Implication

$\vdash \left({\neg \left({p \implies q}\right)}\right) \implies \left({p \land \neg q}\right)$

Proof 1

By the tableau method of natural deduction:

$\vdash \left({p \land \neg q}\right) \iff \left({\neg \left({p \implies q}\right)}\right)$

Proof 2

We apply the Method of Truth Tables.

As can be seen by inspection, the truth values under the main connective is true for all boolean interpretations.

$\begin{array}{|cccc|c|cccc|} \hline p & \land & \neg & q & \iff & \neg & (p & \implies & q) \\ \hline F & F & T & F & T & F & F & T & F \\ F & F & F & T & T & F & F & T & T \\ T & T & T & F & T & T & T & F & F \\ T & F & F & T & T & F & T & T & T \\ \hline \end{array}$
