# 2.2 Problems on minterm analysis

Consider the class $\left\{A,\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}B,\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}C,\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}D\right\}$ of events. Suppose the probability that at least one of the events A or C occurs is 0.75 and the probability that at least one of the four events occurs is 0.90.Determine the probability that neither of the events A or C but at least one of the events B or D occurs.

Use the pattern $P\left(E\cup F\right)=P\left(E\right)+P\left({E}^{c}F\right)$ and ${\left(A\cup C\right)}^{c}={A}^{c}{C}^{c}$ .

$P\left(A\cup C\cup B\cup D\right)=P\left(A\cup C\right)+P\left({A}^{c}{C}^{c}\left(B\cup D\right)\right),\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\text{so}\phantom{\rule{4.pt}{0ex}}\text{that}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}P\left({A}^{c}{C}^{c}\left(B\cup D\right)\right)=0.90-0.75=0.15$
1. Use minterm maps to show which of the following statements are true for any class $\left\{A,\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}B,\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}C\right\}$ :
1. $\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}A\cup {\left(BC\right)}^{c}=A\cup B\cup {B}^{c}{C}^{c}$
2. $\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}{\left(A\cup B\right)}^{c}={A}^{c}C\cup {B}^{c}C$
3. $\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}A\subset AB\cup AC\cup BC$
2. Repeat part (1) using indicator functions (evaluated on minterms).
3. Repeat part (1) using the m-procedure minvec3 and MATLAB logical operations.

We use the MATLAB procedure, which displays the essential patterns.

minvec3 Variables are A, B, C, Ac, Bc, CcThey may be renamed, if desired. E = A|~(B&C); F = A|B|(Bc&Cc); disp([E;F]) 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 % Not equal1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 G = ~(A|B);H = (Ac&C)|(Bc&C); disp([G;H]) 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 % Not equal0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 K = (A&B)|(A&C)|(B&C); disp([A;K]) 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 % A not contained in K0 0 0 1 0 1 1 1

Use (1) minterm maps, (2) indicator functions (evaluated on minterms), (3) the m-procedure minvec3 and MATLAB logical operations to show that

1. $\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}A\left(B\cup {C}^{c}\right)\cup {A}^{c}BC\subset A\left(BC\cup {C}^{c}\right)\cup {A}^{c}B$
2. $\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}A\cup {A}^{c}BC=AB\cup BC\cup AC\cup A{B}^{c}{C}^{c}$

We use the MATLAB procedure, which displays the essential patterns.

minvec3 Variables are A, B, C, Ac, Bc, CcThey may be renamed, if desired. E = (A&(B|Cc))|(Ac&B&C); F = (A&((B&C)|Cc))|(Ac&B); disp([E;F]) 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 1 % E subset of F0 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 G = A|(Ac&B&C); H = (A&B)|(B&C)|(A&C)|(A&Bc&Cc); disp([G;H]) 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 % G = H0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1

Minterms for the events $\left\{A,B,C,D\right\}$ , arranged as on a minterm map are

0.0168 0.0072 0.0252 0.0108 0.0392 0.0168 0.0588 0.02520.0672 0.0288 0.1008 0.0432 0.1568 0.0672 0.2352 0.1008

What is the probability that three or more of the events occur on a trial? Of exactly two? Of two or fewer?

We use mintable(4) and determine positions with correct number(s) of ones (number of occurrences). An alternate is to use minvec4 and express theBoolean combinations which give the correct number(s) of ones.

 npr02_04 Minterm probabilities are in pm. Use mintable(4) a = mintable(4);s = sum(a); % Number of ones in each minterm position P1 = (s>=3)*pm' % Select and add minterm probabilities P1 = 0.4716P2 = (s==2)*pm' P2 = 0.3728P3 = (s<=2)*pm' P3 = 0.5284

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian

Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
