Extensive Definition
In mathematical
logic, simplification (equivalent to conjunction elimination)
is a valid argument and rule of
inference which makes the inference that, if the
conjunction A and B
is true, then A is true, and B is true.
In formal
language:
 A \and B \vdash A
 A \and B \vdash B
The argument has one premise,
namely a conjunction,
and one often uses simplification in longer arguments to derive one
of the conjuncts.
An example in English:
 It's raining and it's pouring.
 Therefore it's raining.
simplification in Swedish:
Förenkling
