Definition df-or 384
Description: Define disjunction (logical 'or'). Definition of [Margaris] p. 49. When the left operand, right operand, or both are true, the result is true; when both sides are false, the result is false. For example, it is true that (2 = 3 ∨ 4 = 4) (ex-or 27408). After we define the constant true (df-tru 1526) and the constant false (df-fal 1529), we will be able to prove these truth table values: ((⊤ ∨ ⊤) ↔ ⊤) (truortru 1550), ((⊤ ∨ ⊥) ↔ ⊤) (truorfal 1551), ((⊥ ∨ ⊤) ↔ ⊤) (falortru 1552), and ((⊥ ∨ ⊥) ↔ ⊥) (falorfal 1553).

This is our first use of the biconditional connective in a definition; we use the biconditional connective in place of the traditional "<=def=>", which means the same thing, except that we can manipulate the biconditional connective directly in proofs rather than having to rely on an informal definition substitution rule. Note that if we mechanically substitute 𝜑𝜓) for (𝜑𝜓), we end up with an instance of previously proved theorem biid 251. This is the justification for the definition, along with the fact that it introduces a new symbol . Contrast with (df-an 385), (wi 4), (df-nan 1488), and (df-xor 1505) .
