Description:
Modal logic is the study of modalities - expressions that qualify assertions about the truth of statements. This volume collects together a number of the author's papers on modal logic, beginning with his work on the duality between algebraic and set-theoretic modals, and including two new articles, one on infinitary rules of inference, and the other about recent results on the relationship between modal logic and first-order logic.

Book cover: Coalgebras and Modal LogicCoalgebras and Modal Logic
by - ESSLLI
One of the achievements of the theory of coalgebras is to make clear that some seemingly different areas are related by duality. This text explains this duality. Recent research lead to the insight that modal logic is dual to equational logic.
