# conjunction

A conjunction^{} is true only when both parameters (called conjuncts) are true. In English, conjunction is denoted by the word “and”. Symbolically, we represent it as $\wedge $ or multiplication^{} applied to Boolean parameters. Conjunction of $a$ and $b$ would be written

$$a\wedge b$$ |

$$a\cdot b$$ |

or

$$ab$$ |

The truth table^{} for conjunction is

$a$ | $b$ | $a\wedge b$ |
