Algebraic Tools for Modal Logic
by Mai Gehrke, Yde Venema
Publisher: ESSLLI 2001
Number of pages: 109
Apart from giving a general introduction to the fundamental ideas and methods of applying algebra in logic, the purpose of the course is to present recent developments from algebra as well as modal logic, in an integrated format. Our intention is to illuminate and generalize existing results concerning the issues of completeness, canonicity and correspondence for Kripke style semantics for modal and generalized modal logics.

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.

The notions of strict, logical necessity and possibility and problems connected with them are treated in the book with the resources of modal symbolic logic. In general a balance is struck between philosophical and technical treatment of the issues.

This is a text for dedicated undergraduates with no previous experience in modal logic. The book should prepare people for reading advanced texts in modal logic, such as Goldblatt, Chellas, Hughes and Cresswell, and van Benthem.

This Handbook documents the current state of modal logic, a lively area of logical research which was born in philosophy, but which has since made its way into mathematics, linguistics, computer science, AI, and even economic game theory.
