We propose a new sequent calculus for biintuitionistic logic which sits somewhere between display calculi and traditional sequent calculi by using nested sequents. Our calculus enjoys a simple (purely syntactic) cutelimination proof as do display calculi. But it has an easily derivable variant calculus which is amenable to automated proof search as are (some) traditional sequent calculi. We first present the initial calculus and its cutelimination proof. We then present the derived calculus, and then present a proofsearch strategy which allows it to be used for automated proof search. We prove that this search strategy is terminating and complete by showing how it can be used to mimic derivations obtained from an existing calculus GBiInt for biintuitionistic logic. As far as we know, our new calculus is the first sequent calculus for biintuitionistic logic which uses no semantic additions like labels, which has a purely syntactic cutelimination proof, and which can be used naturally for backwards proofsearch.
Combining Derivations and Refutations for Cutfree Completeness in BiIntuitionistic Logic

Biintuitionistic logic is the union of intuitionistic and dual intuitionistic logic, and was introduced by Rauszer as a Hilbert calculus with algebraic and Kripke semantics. But her subsequent “cutfree ” sequent calculus has recently been shown to fail cutelimination. We present a new cutfree sequent calculus for biintuitionistic logic, and prove it sound and complete with respect to its Kripke semantics. Ensuring completeness is complicated by the interaction between intuitionistic implication and dual intuitionistic exclusion, similarly to future and past modalities in tense logic. Our calculus handles this interaction using derivations and refutations as first class citizens. We employ extended sequents which pass information from premises to conclusions using variables instantiated at the leaves of refutations, and rules which compose certain refutations and derivations to form derivations. Automated deduction using terminating backward search is also possible, although this is not our main purpose. 1
Proof Search and CounterModel Construction for Biintuitionistic Propositional Logic with Labelled Sequents
"... Abstract. Biintuitionistic logic is a conservative extension of intuitionistic logic with a connective dual to implication, called exclusion. We present a sound and complete cutfree labelled sequent calculus for biintuitionistic propositional logic, BiInt, following S. Negri’s general method for ..."

Abstract. Biintuitionistic logic is a conservative extension of intuitionistic logic with a connective dual to implication, called exclusion. We present a sound and complete cutfree labelled sequent calculus for biintuitionistic propositional logic, BiInt, following S. Negri’s general method for devising sequent calculi for normal modal logics. Although it arises as a natural formalization of the Kripke semantics, it is does not directly support proof search. To describe a proof search procedure, we develop a more algorithmic version that also allows for countermodel extraction from a failed proof attempt. 1
Relating Sequent Calculi for Biintuitionistic Propositional Logic

Abstract. Biintuitionistic logic is the conservative extension of intuitionistic logic with a connective dual to implication. It is sometimes presented as a symmetric constructive subsystem of classical logic. In this paper, we compare three sequent calculi for biintuitionistic propositional logic: (1) a basic standardstyle sequent calculus that restricts the premises of implicationright and exclusionleft inferences to be singleconclusion resp. singleassumption and is incomplete without the cut rule, (2) the calculus with nested sequents by Goré et al., where a complete class of cuts is encapsulated into special “unnest ” rules and (3) a cutfree labelled sequent calculus derived from the Kripke semantics of the logic. We show that these calculi can be translated into each other and discuss the ineliminable cuts of the standardstyle sequent calculus. 1

Abstract We discuss the celebrated BlokEsakia theorem on the isomorphism between the lattices of extensions of intuitionistic propositional logic and the Grzegorczyk modal system. In particular, we present the original algebraic proof of this theorem found by Blok, and give a brief survey of generalisations of the BlokEsakia theorem to extensions of intuitionistic logic with modal operators and coimplication.
