Logical disjunction

Summary
In logic, disjunction, also known as logical disjunction or logical or or logical addition or inclusive disjunction , is a logical connective typically notated as \lor and read aloud as "or". For instance, the English language sentence "it is sunny or it is warm" can be represented in logic using the disjunctive formula S \lor W , assuming that S abbreviates "it is sunny" and W abbreviates "it is warm". In classical logic, disjunction is given a truth functional semantics according to which a formula \phi \lor \psi is true unless both \phi and \psi are false. Because this semantics allows a disjunctive formula to be true when both of its disjuncts are true, it is an inclusive interpretation of disjunction, in contrast with exclusive disjunction. Classical proof theoretical treatments are often given in terms of rules such as disjunction introduction and disjunction elimination. Disjunction
