System BV is NPcomplete

"... System BV is an extension of multiplicative linear logic (MLL) with the rules mix, nullary mix, and a selfdual, noncommutative logical operator, called seq.

System BV is an extension of multiplicative linear logic (MLL) with the rules mix, nullary mix, and a selfdual, noncommutative logical operator, called seq. While the rules mix and nullary mix extend the deductive system, the operator seq extends the language of MLL. Due to the operator seq, system BV extends the applications of MLL to those where sequential composition is crucial, e.g., concurrency theory. System FBV is an extension of MLL with the rules mix and nullary mix. In this paper, by relying on the fact that system BV is a conservative extension of system FBV, I show that system BV is NPcomplete by encoding the 3Partition problem in FBV. I provide a simple completeness proof of this encoding by resorting to a novel proof theoretical method for reducing the nondeterminism in proof search, which is also of independent interest.

Extension without Cut

"... In proof theory one distinguishes sequent proofs with cut and cutfree sequent proofs, while for proof complexity one distinguishes Fregesystems and extended Fregesystems. In this paper we show how deep inference can provide a uniform treatment for both classifications, such that we can define cut ..."

In proof theory one distinguishes sequent proofs with cut and cutfree sequent proofs, while for proof complexity one distinguishes Fregesystems and extended Fregesystems. In this paper we show how deep inference can provide a uniform treatment for both classifications, such that we can define cutfree systems with extension, which is neither possible with Fregesystems, nor with the sequent calculus. We show that the propositional pidgeonhole principle admits polynomialsize proofs in a cutfree system with extension. We also define cutfree systems with substitution and show that the system with extension psimulates the system with substitution. This yields a new (and simpler) proof that extended Fregesystems psimulate Fregesystems with substitution. Finally, we propose a new class of tautologies that have short proofs in extended systems, but might not in Frege systems without extension.

This paper proposes a definition of categorical model of the deep inference system BV, introduced by Guglielmi. Our definition is based on the notion of a linear functor, due to Cockett and Seely. A BVcategory is a linearly distributive category, possibly with negation, with an additional tensor product which, when viewed as a bivariant functor, is linear with a degeneracy condition. We show that this simple definition implies all of the key isomorphisms of the theory. We show that coherence spaces, with Retoré’s noncommutative tensor, is a model.We then consider Girard’s category of probabilistic coherence spaces and show that it contains a selfdual monoidal structure in addition to the ∗autonomous structure exhibited by Girard.

This paper proves coherence results for categories with a natural transformation called intermutation made of arrows from (A ∧ B) ∨ (C ∧ D) to (A ∨ C) ∧ (B ∨ D), for ∧ and ∨ being two biendofunctors. Intermutation occurs in iterated, or nfold, monoidal categories, which were introduced in connection with nfold loop spaces, and for which a related, but different, coherence result was obtained previously by Balteanu, Fiedorowicz, Schwänzl and Vogt. The results of the present paper strengthen up to a point this previous result, and show that twofold loop spaces arise in the manner envisaged by these authors out of categories of a more general kind, which are not twofold monoidal in their sense. In particular, some categories with finite products and coproducts are such. Coherence in Mac Lane’s “all diagrams commute ” sense is proved here first for categories where for ∧ and ∨ one assumes only intermutation, and next for categories where one also assumes natural associativity isomorphisms.

Linear inferences are sound implications of propositional logic where each variable appears exactly once in the premiss and conclusion. We consider a specific set of these inferences, MS, first studied by Straßburger, corresponding to the logical rules in deep inference proof theory. Despite previous results characterising the individual rules of MS, we show that there is no polynomialtime characterisation of MS, assuming that integers cannot be factorised in polynomial time. We also examine the length of rewrite paths in MS, utilising a notion of trivialisation to reduce the case with units to the case without, amongst other observations on MSrewriting and the set of linear inferences in general. 1
