The general topic of this thesis is the investigation of various notions of morphisms between logical deductive systems, motivated by the intuition that additional (categorical) structure is needed to model the interrelations of formal specifications. This general task necessarily involves considerations in various mathematical disciplines, some of which might be interesting in their own right and which can be read independently.
Sequents, Frames, and Completeness

. Entailment relations, originated from Scott, have been used for describing mathematical concepts constructively and for representing categories of domains. This paper gives an analysis of the freely generated frames from entailment relations. This way, we obtain completeness results under the unifying principle of the spatiality of coherence logic. In particular, the domain of disjunctive states, derived from the hyperresolution rule as used in disjunctive logic programs, can be seen as the frame freely generated from the opposite of a sequent structure. At the categorical level, we present equivalences among the categories of sequent structures, distributive lattices, and spectral locales using appropriate morphisms. Key words: sequent structures, lattices, frames, domain theory, resolution, category. Introduction Entailment relations were introduced by Scott as an abstract description of Gentzen's sequent calculus [1315]. It can be seen as a generalisation of the ear...
A Logical Approach to Stable Domains
, 2006
"... Building on earlier work by GuoQiang Zhang on disjunctive information systems, and by Thomas Ehrhard, Pasquale Malacaria, and the first author on stable Stone duality, we develop a framework of disjunctive propositional logic in which theories correspond to algebraic Ldomains.

Building on earlier work by GuoQiang Zhang on disjunctive information systems, and by Thomas Ehrhard, Pasquale Malacaria, and the first author on stable Stone duality, we develop a framework of disjunctive propositional logic in which theories correspond to algebraic Ldomains. Disjunctions in the logic can be indexed by arbitrary sets (as in geometric logic) but must be provably disjoint. This raises several technical issues which have to be addressed before clean notions of axiom system and theory can be defined. We show soundness and completeness of the proof system with respect to distributive disjunctive semilattices, and prove that every such semilattice arises as the Lindenbaum algebra of a disjunctive theory. Via stable Stone duality, we show how to use disjunctive propositional logic for a logical description of algebraic Ldomains.
