Paper: A Sequent Calculus for Nominal Logic (at LICS 2004)

Authors: Murdoch Gabbay James Cheney

Abstract

Nominal logic is a theory of names and binding based on the primitive concepts of freshness and swapping, with a self-dual И- (or "new")-quantifier, originally presented as a Hilbert-style axiom system extending first-order logic. We present a sequent calculus for nominal logic called Fresh Logic, or FL, admitting cut-elimination. We use FL to provide a proof-theoretic foundation for nominal logic programming and show how to interpret FOλ∇, another logic with a self-dual quantifier, within FL.
