A UNIFORM DISPLAY SYSTEM FOR INTUITIONISTIC
AND DUAL INTUITIONISTIC LOGIC
Rajeev Gor?e
Abstract We give a way to display" propositional intuitionistic and dualintuitionistic logic in one uniform setting. We show how the usual singletons on the right" restriction of Gentzen's LJ, and the dual singletons on the left" restriction can be mimicked in Display Logic. The resulting Display System ffiJDJ captures a hybrid logic that permits reasoning with partial and paraconsistent knowledge since it contains two negations : and ? with the following properties: A _ :A is not a theorem; A^ ? A is not a contradiction; A ^ :A is a contradiction; and A_ ? A is a theorem. We then show how to obtain a Display system for Classical Logic by the addition of structural rules only.
Keywords: logical and mathematical models for AI, paraconsistent logics, intuitionistic logic, hybrid logics, automated reasoning.
