Methods of Cut-Elimination: 34 (Trends in Logic) by Matthias Baaz,Alexander Leitsch

By Matthias Baaz,Alexander Leitsch

This is the 1st booklet on cut-elimination in first-order predicate common sense from an algorithmic standpoint. rather than simply proving the life of cut-free proofs, it specializes in the algorithmic equipment remodeling proofs with arbitrary cuts to proofs with simply atomic cuts (atomic reduce basic kinds, so-called ACNFs). the 1st half investigates conventional reductive tools from the perspective of evidence rewriting. inside this common framework, generalizations of Gentzen's and Sch”utte-Tait's cut-elimination equipment are outlined and proven terminating with ACNFs of the unique facts. furthermore, a complexity theoretic comparability of Gentzen's and Tait's tools is given.

The center of the booklet facilities round the cut-elimination process CERES (cut removing by way of answer) constructed by means of the authors. CERES relies at the answer calculus and substantially differs from the reductive cut-elimination equipment. The booklet exhibits that CERES asymptotically outperforms all reductive tools according to Gentzen's cut-reduction principles. It obtains this consequence via heavy use of subsumption theorems in clause common sense. additionally, a number of purposes of CERES are given (to interpolation, complexity research of cut-elimination, generalization of proofs, and to the research of actual mathematical proofs). finally, the e-book demonstrates that CERES should be prolonged to nonclassical logics, specifically to finitely-valued logics and to G"odel logic.
