There are two varieties of atomic formulas: Either (f> begins with an equals sign followed by two terms, or begins with a relation symbol followed by several terms. 4. Induction 19 in (ft. Thus, there axe as many left parentheses as right parentheses in 4>, and we have established the theorem if ^ is an atomic formula. Inductive Case. 3. Also assume that the statement of the theorem is true when applied to the formulas a and /?. With those assumptions we will prove that. the statement of the theorem is true when applied to the formula

Being in a Gentleman's Library, Euclid's Elements lay open and 'twas the 47 El. libri 1 [the Pythagorean Theorem]. He read the Proposition. By G—, sayd he (he would now and then sweare an emphaticall Oath by way of emphasis) this is impossible! So he reads the Demonstration of it, which referred him back to such a Proposition; which proposition he read. That referred him back to another, which he also read. Et sic deinceps [and so on] that at last he was demonstratively convinced of that trueth.

I'm also sure that you've noticed that this double turnstyle symbol, |=, is getting a lot of use. Just remember that if there is a structure on the left, 21 (= a, we are discussing truth in a single structure. If there is a set of sentences on the left, T |=
