Completeness Theory for Propositional Logics by Witold A. Pogorzelski, Piotr Wojtylak

By Witold A. Pogorzelski, Piotr Wojtylak

The e-book develops the idea of 1 of crucial notions within the technique of formal structures. really, completeness performs a major function in propositional common sense the place many variations of the thought were outlined. worldwide editions of the idea suggest the opportunity of getting all right and trustworthy schemata of inference. Its neighborhood versions discuss with the proposal of fact given by way of a few semantics. A uniform thought of completeness in its common and native which means is performed and it generalizes and systematizes a few number of the thought of completeness reminiscent of Post-completeness, structural completeness etc. This technique permits additionally for a extra profound view upon a few crucial homes (e.g. two-valuedness) of propositional platforms. For those reasons, the idea of logical matrices, and the speculation of final result operations is exploited.

1. Let A, , where is a preorder (order) be a preordered set. Then (i) the relation ≈ defined on A as x≈y ⇔ x y ∧ y x is an equivalence on A; (ii) the relation defined on A/≈ by [x] [y] ⇔ x y is an ordering on A/≈. Assume that A, is a preordered set and let X ⊆ A, a ∈ A. Then a is an upper bound of X, in symbols a ∈ Bu (X), iff y a for each y ∈ X. Similarly, a is called a lower bound of X, a ∈ Bl (X), iff a y for each y ∈ X. Moreover, we assume the following definitions: (i) Great(X) = X ∩ Bu (X), (ii) Least(X) = X ∩ Bl (X), (iii) Sup(X) = Least Bu (X) , (iv) Inf(X) = Great Bl (X) .

In Kurt Gödel’s paper [26], 1933, the term S5 had another meaning; there was considered a system equivalent with R0 ∗ , AS5 , where R0 ∗ = {r0 , r , r∗ }. Further in [59], 1957, S5 was in turn equivalent with R0∗ , AS5 . , [23], 1965). It does not matter which rules are combined with a standard set of axioms as long as we speak only about formulas derivable in S5, since Cn R0∗ , AS5 = Cn R0a∗ , AS5 = Cn R0 ∗ , AS5 . However, it can be shown that R0∗ , AS5 ≈ R0a∗ , AS5 ≈ R0 ∗ , AS5 which means, in particular, that Gödel’s rule r is not derivable in R0∗ , AS5 — see [135], 1982.

If H is a filter in A, (i) x , then y ∧ x ∈ H ⇒ y ∈ H; (ii) X ∈ Fin(H) ⇒ Inf(X) ⊆ H. Easy proof of this lemma can be omitted. It should be emphasized, however, that from (i) and (ii) it does not follow that H is a filter in A, . For instance, let A = {2, 3, 12, 18, 30} and let x y ⇔ x is a divisor of y. 4. But {12, 18} is not a filter since Bu Bl ({12, 18}) = {12, 18, 30}. Now we can prove some lemmas which show the soundness of the accepted definition of a filter. 5. If A, is a lattice ordered set and if H ⊆ A is non-empty, then H is a filter in A, iff (i) x y ∧ x ∈ H ⇒ y ∈ H; (ii) x, y ∈ H ⇒ x ∩ y ∈ H.
