Equivalence of Propositions in a Propositional Boolean Algebra

Let () be a propositional Boolean algebra for denoting the propositional variables. The isomorphic polynomial boolean algebra is ~+, where

Two elements will be equivalent iff their images in are equal. Therefore, the following procedure checks whether and are equivalent.

equiv:=proc(alfa,beta)
if convert(expand(alfa-beta),mod2)=0 then print(YES) else print(NO) fi;
end;
