p ∧ p ≡ p
Associative (p ∧ q ) ∧ r ≡ p ∧ ( q ∧ r )
(p ∨ q ) ∨ r ≡ p ∨ ( q ∨ r )
Commutative p ∧ q ≡ q ∧ p
p ∨ q ≡ q ∨ p
Distributive p ∨ ( q ∧ r ) ≡ ( p ∨ q ) ∧ ( p ∨ r )
p ∧ ( q ∨ r ) ≡ ( p ∧ q ) ∨ ( p ∧ r )
Identity p ∧ T ≡ p
p ∨ F ≡ p
Annihilation[?] p ∨ T ≡ T
p ∧ F ≡ F
Complement[?] p ∨ ¬ p ≡ T

¬ T ≡ F
¬ F ≡ T
Involution[?] ¬ ¬ p ≡ p
DeMorgan's p ∨ q ≡ ¬ ( ¬ p ∧ ¬ q )
