The calculus of structures is a framework for specifying logical systems, which is similar to the onesided sequent calculus but more general. We present a system of inference rules for propositional classical logic in this new framework and prove cut elimination for it. The system enjoys a decomposition theorem for derivations that is not available in the sequent calculus. The main novelty of our system is that all the rules are local : contraction, in particular, is reduced to atomic form. This should be interesting for distributed proofsearch and also for complexity theory, since the computational cost of applying each rule is bounded.
Minimal Classical Logic and Control Operators

"... We give an analysis of various classical axioms and characterize a notion of minimal classical logic that enforces Peirce's law without enforcing Ex Falso Quodlibet. We show that a \natural" implementation of this logic is Parigot's classical natural deduction. ..."

Evolution brought brains and minds into a world initially devoid of inteUlgent life. The evolutionary process designed the neural machinery that generates intehgent behavior, and important insights into how this machinery works can be gained by understanding how evolution constructs organisms. This is the rationale that underlies research in evolutionary psychology. Evolutionary psychology was founded on interloclang contributions from evolutionary biology, cognitive science, psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience. It reflects an attempt to think through, from first principles, how current knowledge from these various fields can be integrated into a single, consistent, sciennfic framework for the study of the mind and brain (Cosmides

Intuitionistic Necessity Revisited

Our approach is different to others in that we favour the natural deduction and sequent calculus proof systems rather than the axiomatic, or Hilbertstyle, system.

In this paper we consider an intuitionistic modal logic, which we call IS42 . Our approach is different to others in that we favour the natural deduction and sequent calculus proof systems rather than the axiomatic, or Hilbertstyle, system. Our natural deduction formulation is simpler than other proposals. The traditional means of devising a modal logic is with reference to a model, and almost always, in terms of a Kripke model. Again our approach is different in that we favour categorical models. This facilitates not only a more abstract definition of a whole class of models but also a means of modelling proofs as well as provability.

One of the most important contributions of A. Church to logic is his invention of the lambda calculus. We present the genesis of this theory and its two major areas of application: the representation of computations and the resulting functional programming languages on the one hand and the representation of reasoning and the resulting systems of computer mathematics on the other hand.

Normalisation control in deep inference via atomic flows

We study simple manipulations of atomic flows that correspond to complex reductions on derivations. This allows us to prove, for propositional logic, a n ..."

Abstract. We introduce ‘atomic flows’: they are graphs obtained from derivations by tracing atom occurrences and forgetting the logical structure. We study simple manipulations of atomic flows that correspond to complex reductions on derivations. This allows us to prove, for propositional logic, a new and very general normalisation theorem, which contains cut elimination as a special case. We operate in deep inference, which is more general than other syntactic paradigms, and where normalisation is more difficult to control. We argue that atomic flows are a significant technical advance for normalisation theory, because 1) the technique they support is largely independent of syntax; 2) indeed, it is largely independent of logical inference rules; 3) they constitute a powerful geometric formalism, which is more intuitive than syntax. 1.

This paper gives an introduction to type theory, focusing on its recent use as a logical framework for proofs and programs. The first two sections give a background to type theory intended for the reader who is new to the subject. The following presents MartinLof's monomorphic type theory and an implementation, ALF, of this theory. Finally, a few small tutorial examples in ALF are given.

Many different notions of "property of interest" and methods of verifying such properties arise naturally in programming. A general framework of "Specification Structures" is presented for combining different notions and methods in a coherent fashion. This is then applied to concurrency in the setting of Interaction Categories.
