Logic in Computer Science (LICS 2006)

Paper: Matching explicit and modal reasoning about programs: a proof theoretic delineation of dynamic logic (at LICS 2006)

Authors: Daniel Leivant

Abstract

We establish a match between two broad approaches to reasoning about programs: modal (dynamic logic) proofs on the one hand, and explicit higher-order reference to program semantics, on the other. We show that Pratt-Segerberg’s firstorder dynamic logic DL proves precisely program properties that are provable in second-order logic with set-existence restricted to a natural class of formulas, well-known to be related to computation theory
