Existential quantification, logic: formalizing the statement that in a specified domain there is at least one object with a certain property. The quantification consists of a quantifier "(∃x)" "for some x", a variable for objects "x" and one or more variables for the predicates F, G ... - The quantification does not claim the existence of the properties ascribed. See also universal quantification, quantification, quantifiers, logic, second order logic, HOL, schematic letters, predicates. | |||
