This paper deals with universes in explicit mathematics. After introducing some basic definitions, the limit axiom and possible ordering principles for universes are discussed. Later, we turn to least universes, strictness and name induction. Special emphasis is put on theories for explicit mathematics with universes which are prooftheoretically equivalent to Feferman's T 0 . 1 Introduction In some form or another, universes play an important role in many systems of set theory and higher order arithmetic, in various formalizations of constructive mathematics and in logics for computation. One aspect of universes is that they expand the set or type formation principles in a natural and perspicuous way and provide greater expressive power and prooftheoretic strength. The general idea behind universes is quite simple: suppose that we are given a formal system Th comprising certain set (or type) existence principles which are justified on specific philosophical grounds. Then it may be a...

In this article we provide wellordering proofs for metapredicative systems of explicit mathematics and admissible set theory featuring suitable axioms about the Mahloness of the underlying universe of discourse. In particular, it is shown that in the corresponding theories EMA of explicit mathematics and KPm 0 of admissible set theory, transfinite induction along initial segments of the ordinal ##00, for # being a ternary Veblen function, is derivable. This reveals that the upper bounds given for these two systems in the paper Jager and Strahm [11] are indeed sharp. 1 Introduction This paper is a companion to the article Jager and Strahm [11], where systems of explicit mathematics and admissible set theory for metapredicative Mahlo are introduced. Whereas the main concern of [11] was to establish prooftheoretic upper bounds for these systems, in this article we provide the corresponding wellordering proofs, thus showing that the upper bounds derived in [11] are sharp. The central...

This paper is about two topics: 1. systems of explicit mathematics with universes and a nonconstructive quantification operator ¯; 2. iterated fixed point theories with ordinals. We give a prooftheoretic treatment of both families of theories; in particular, ordinal theories are used to get upper bounds for explicit theories with finitely many universes. 1 Introduction The two major frameworks for explicit mathematics that were introduced in Feferman [4, 5] are the theories T 0 and T 1 . T 1 results from T 0 by strengthening the applicative axioms by the socalled nonconstructive ¯ operator. Although highly nonconstructive, ¯ is predicatively acceptable and makes quantification over the natural numbers explicit. While the proof theory of T 0 is wellknown since the early eighties (cf. Feferman [4, 5], Feferman and Sieg [10], Jager [14], Jager and Pohlers [17]), the corresponding investigations of subystems of T 1 have been completed only recently by Feferman and Jager [9, 8] and G...

The system EMU of explicit mathematics incorporates the uniform construction of universes. In this paper we give a prooftheoretic treatment of EMU and show that it corresponds to transfinite hierarchies of fixed points of positive arithmetic operators, where the length of these fixed point hierarchies is bounded by # 0 . 1 Introduction Metapredicativity is a new general term in proof theory which describes the analysis and study of formal systems whose prooftheoretic strength is beyond the FefermanSchutte ordinal # 0 but which are nevertheless amenable to purely predicative methods. Typical examples of formal systems which are apt for scaling the initial part of metapredicativity are the transfinitely iterated fixed point theories # ID # whose detailed prooftheoretic analysis is given by Jager, Kahle, Setzer and Strahm in [18]. In this paper we assume familiarity with [18]. For natural extensions of Friedman's ATR that can be measured against transfinitely iterated fixed point ...

. This paper is a contribution to the area of metapredicative proof theory. It continues recent investigations on the transfinitely iterated fixed point theories # ID# (cf. [10]) and addresses the question of autonomity in iterated fixed point theories. An external and an internal form of autonomous generation of transfinite hierarchies of fixed points of positive arithmetic operators are introduced and prooftheoretically analyzed. This includes the discussion of the principle of socalled fixed point transfinite recursion. Connections to theories for iterated inaccessibility in the context of Kripke Platek set theory without foundation are revealed. 1 Introduction The foundational program to study the principles and ordinals which are implicit in a predicative conception of the universe of sets of natural numbers led to the progression of systems of ramified analysis up to the famous FefermanSchutte ordinal # 0 in the early sixties. Since then numerous theories have been found w...

The aim of this article is to give the prooftheoretic analysis of various subsystems of Feferman's theory T1 for explicit mathematics which contain the nonconstructive µoperator and join. We make use of standard prooftheoretic techniques such as cutelimination of appropriate semiformal systems and asymmetrical interpretations in standard structures for explicit mathematics.

In this paper we present some metapredicative subsystems of analysis. We deal with reflection principles, #model existence axioms (limit axioms) and axioms asserting the existence of hierarchies. We show several equivalences of the introduced subsystems. In particular we prove the equivalence of # 1 1 transfinite dependent choice and # 1 2 reflection on #models of # 1 1 DC. 1 Introduction The formal system of classical analysis is second order arithmetic with the full comprehension principle. It was baptized classical analysis, since classical mathematical analysis can be formalized in it. Often, subsystems of classical analysis su#ce as formal framework for particular parts of mathematical analysis. During the last decades a lot of such subsystems have been isolated and prooftheoretically investigated. The subsystems of analysis introduced in this paper belong to metapredicative prooftheory. Metapredicative systems have prooftheoretic ordinals beyond # 0 but can still be tr...

We investigate universes axiomatized as sets with natural closure conditions over Frege structures. In the presence of a natural form of induction, we obtain a theory of prooftheoretic strength \Gamma 0 . 1 Introduction Frege structures were introduced by Aczel in [Acz80] as a semantical concept to introduce a notion of sets by means of a partial truth predicate. This approach is closely related to prior work of Scott [Sco75] and was originally developed for questions around MartinLof's type theory. In [Bee85, Ch. XVII] Beeson gave a formalization of Frege structures as a truth theory over applicative theories. Applicative theories go back to Feferman's systems of explicit mathematics introduced in [Fef75, Fef79]. These systems provide a logical basis for functional programming. The basic theory for which Frege structures are defined is the basic theory of operations and numbers TON, introduced and studied in [JS95]. It comprises total combinatorial logic and arithmetic. The notion ...
