For more information, see the Wikipedia article:
De Morgan's laws state that the negation of a logical conjunction is equivalent to a disjunction of the negatives; and the negation of a disjunction is equivalent to the conjunction of the negatives.
In other words:
- not(P and Q) is equivalent to (not P) or (not Q)
- not(P or Q) is equivalent to (not P) and (not Q)
In symbols:
- ¬(P ∧ Q) ⇔ (¬P) ∨ (¬Q)
- ¬(P ∨ Q) ⇔ (¬P) ∧ (¬Q)
