For lack of general algorithmic methods that apply to wide classes of logics, establishing a complexity bound for a given modal logic is often a laborious task. The present work is a step towards a general theory of the complexity of modal logics. Our main result is that all rank1 logics enjoy a shallow model property and thus are, under mild assumptions on the format of their axiomatisation, in PSPACE. This leads to a unified derivation of tight PSPACEbounds for a number of logics including K, KD, coalition logic, graded modal logic, majority logic, and probabilistic modal logic. Our generic algorithm moreover finds tableau proofs that witness pleasant prooftheoretic properties including a weak subformula property. This generality is made possible by a coalgebraic semantics, which conveniently abstracts from the details of a given model class and thus allows covering a broad range of logics in a uniform way.
A Finite Model Construction For Coalgebraic Modal Logic

In recent years, a tight connection has emerged between modal logic on the one hand and coalgebras, understood as generic transition systems, on the other hand. Here, we prove that (finitary) coalgebraic modal logic has the finite model property. This fact not only reproves known completeness results for coalgebraic modal logic, which we push further by establishing that every coalgebraic modal logic admits a complete axiomatization of rank 1; it also enables us to establish a generic decidability result and a first complexity bound. Examples covered by these general results include, besides standard HennessyMilner logic, graded modal logic and probabilistic modal logic.

We study sequent calculi for propositional modal logics, interpreted over coalgebras, with admissibility of cut being the main result. As applications we present a new proof of the (already known) interpolation property for coalition logic and establish the interpolation property for the conditional logics CK and CK Id.
Beyond rank 1: Algebraic semantics and finite models for coalgebraic logics

Coalgebras provide a uniform framework for the semantics of a large class of (mostly nonnormal) modal logics, including e.g. monotone modal logic, probabilistic and graded modal logic, and coalition logic, as well as the usual Kripke semantics of modal logic.

Coalgebras provide a uniform framework for the semantics of a large class of (mostly nonnormal) modal logics, including e.g. monotone modal logic, probabilistic and graded modal logic, and coalition logic, as well as the usual Kripke semantics of modal logic. In earlier work, the finite model property for coalgebraic logics has been established w.r.t. the class of all structures appropriate for a given logic at hand; the corresponding modal logics are characterised by being axiomatised in rank 1, i.e. without nested modalities. Here, we extend the range of coalgebraic techniques to cover logics that impose global properties on their models, formulated as frame conditions with possibly nested modalities on the logical side (in generalisation of frame conditions such as symmetry or transitivity in the context of Kripke frames). We show that the finite model property for such logics follows from the finite algebra property of the associated class of complex algebras, and then investigate sufficient conditions for the finite algebra property to hold. Example applications include extensions of coalition logic and logics of uncertainty and knowledge.
Cut Elimination in Coalgebraic Logics

We give two generic proofs for cut elimination in propositional modal logics, interpreted over coalgebras. We first investigate semantic coherence conditions between the axiomatisation of a particular logic and its coalgebraic semantics that guarantee that the cutrule is admissible in the ensuing sequent calculus. We then independently isolate a purely syntactic property of the set of modal rules that guarantees cut elimination. Apart from the fact that cut elimination holds, our main result is that the syntactic and semantic assumptions are equivalent in case the logic is amenable to coalgebraic semantics. As applications we present a new proof of the (already known) interpolation property for coalition logic and newly establish the interpolation property for the conditional logics CK and CK + ID.

Canonical models are of central importance in modal logic, in particular as they witness strong completeness and hence compactness. While the canonical model construction is well understood for Kripke semantics, nonnormal modal logics often present subtle difficulties – up to the point that canonical models may fail to exist, as is the case e.g. in most probabilistic logics. Here, we present a generic canonical model construction in the semantic framework of coalgebraic modal logic, which pinpoints coherence conditions between syntax and semantics of modal logics that guarantee strong completeness. We apply this method to reconstruct canonical model theorems that are either known or folklore, and moreover instantiate our method to obtain new strong completeness results. In particular, we prove strong completeness of graded modal logic with finite multiplicities, and of the modal logic of exact probabilities.

Applications of modal logics are abundant in computer science, and a large number of structurally different modal logics have been successfully employed in a diverse spectrum of application contexts. Coalgebraic semantics, on the other hand, provides a uniform and encompassing view on the large variety of specific logics used in particular domains. The coalgebraic approach is generic and compositional: tools and techniques simultaneously apply to a large class of application areas and can moreover be combined in a modular way. In particular, this facilitates a pickandchoose approach to domain specific formalisms, applicable across the entire scope of application areas, leading to generic software tools that are easier to design, to implement, and to maintain. This paper substantiates the authors ’ firm belief that the systematic exploitation of the coalgebraic nature of modal logic will not only have impact on the field of modal logic itself but also lead to significant progress in a number of areas within computer science, such as knowledge representation and concurrency/mobility.

Hybrid logic extends modal logic with support for reasoning about individual states, designated by socalled nominals. We study hybrid logic in the broad context of coalgebraic semantics, where Kripke frames are replaced with coalgebras for a given functor, thus covering a wide range of reasoning principles including, e.g., probabilistic, graded, default, or coalitional operators. Specifically, we establish generic criteria for a given coalgebraic hybrid logic to admit named canonical models, with ensuing completeness proofs for pure extensions on the one hand, and for an extended hybrid language with local binding on the other. We instantiate our framework with a number of examples. Notably, we prove completeness of graded hybrid logic with local binding.

ABSTRACT. Canonical models are of central importance in modal logic, in particular as they witness strong completeness and hence compactness. While the canonical model construction is well understood for Kripke semantics, nonnormal modal logics often present subtle difficulties – up to the point that canonical models may fail to exist, as is the case e.g. in most probabilistic logics. Here, we present a generic canonical model construction in the semantic framework of coalgebraic modal logic, which pinpoints coherence conditions between syntax and semantics of modal logics that guarantee strong completeness. We apply this method to reconstruct canonical model theorems that are either known or folklore, and moreover instantiate our method to obtain new strong completeness results. In particular, we prove strong completeness of graded modal logic with finite multiplicities, and of the modal logic of exact probabilities. In modal logic, completeness proofs come in two flavours: weak completeness, i.e. derivability of all universally valid formulas, is often proved using finite model constructions, and strong completeness, which additionally allows for a possibly infinite set of assumptions. The latter entails recursive enumerability of the set of consequences of a recursively enumerable set of assumptions, and is usually established using (infinite) canonical models. The appeal of the first method is that it
