Possible world semantics underlies many of the applications of modal logic in computer science and philosophy. The standard theory arises from interpreting the semantic definitions in the ordinary metatheory of informal classical mathematics. If, however, the same semantic definitions are interpreted in an intuitionistic metatheory then the induced modal logics no longer satisfy certain intuitionistically invalid principles. This thesis investigates the intuitionistic modal logics that arise in this way. Natural deduction systems for various intuitionistic modal logics are presented. From one point of view, these systems are selfjustifying in that a possible world interpretation of the modalities can be read off directly from the inference rules. A technical justification is given by the faithfulness of translations into intuitionistic firstorder logic. It is also established that, in many cases, the natural deduction systems induce wellknown intuitionistic modal logics, previously given by Hilbertstyle axiomatizations. The main benefit of the natural deduction systems over axiomatizations is their

We investigate a novel intuitionistic modal logic, called Propositional Lax Logic, with promising applications to the formal verification of computer hardware. The logic has emerged from an attempt to express correctness `up to' behavioural constraints  a central notion in hardware verification  as a logical modality. The resulting logic is unorthodox in several respects. As a modal logic it is special since it features a single modal operator fl that has a flavour both of possibility and of necessity. As for hardware verification it is special since it is an intuitionistic rather than classical logic which so far has been the basis of the great majority of approaches. Finally, its models are unusual since they feature worlds with inconsistent information and furthermore the only frame condition is that the fl frame be a subrelation of the oeframe. In the paper we will provide the motivation for Propositional Lax Logic and present several technical results. We will investigate...

We consider two systems of constructive modal logic which are computationally motivated. Their modalities admit several computational interpretations and are used to capture intensional features such as notions of computation, constraints, concurrency, etc. Both systems have so far been studied mainly from typetheoretic and categorytheoretic perspectives, but Kripke models for similar systems were studied independently. Here we bring these threads together and prove duality results which show how to relate Kripke models to algebraic models and these in turn to the appropriate categorical models for these logics.

Intuitionistic propositional logic Int and its extensions, known as intermediate or superintuitionistic logics, in many respects can be regarded just as fragments of classical modal logics containing S4. Atthe syntactical level, the Godel translation t embeds every intermediate logic L = Int+ into modal log1 ics in the interval L = [ L = S4 t (); L=Grz t ()]. Semantically this is re ected by the fact that Heyting algebras are precisely the algebras of open elements of topological Boolean algebras. From the latticetheoretic standpoint the map is a homomorphism of the lattice of logics containing S4 onto the lattice of intermediate logics, while, according to the Blok{Esakia theorem, is an isomorphism of the latter onto the lattice of extensions of the Grzegorczyk system Grz. Atthe philosophical level the Godel translation provides a classical interpretation of the intuitionistic connectives. And from the technical point of view this embedding is a powerful tool for transferring various kinds of results from intermediate logics to modal ones and back via preservation theorems.

This paper generalises and adapts the theory of sheaves on a topological space to sheaves on a relational space: a topological space with a binary relation. The relational bundles on a relational space are defined as the continuous, relationpreserving functions into the space, and the relational sections of a relational bundle are defined as the relationpreserving partial sections. This defines a functor to the category of presheaves on the space, which has a left adjoint. The presheaves which arise as the relational sections of a relational bundle are characterised by separation and patching conditions similar to those of a sheaf: we call them the relational sheaves. The relational bundles which arise from presheaves are characterised by local homeomorphism conditions: we call them the local relational homeomorphisms. The adjunction restricts to an equivalence between the categories of relational sheaves and local relational homeomorphisms. The paper goes on to investigate the structure of these equivalent categories. They are shown to be quasitoposes (thus modelling firstorder logic), and to have enough structure to model a certain firstorder modal logic described in a companion paper. 1
