Multirole Logic (Extended Abstract)

We identify multirole logic as a new form of logic in which conjunction/disjunction is interpreted as an ultrafilter on the power set of some underlying set (of roles) and the notion of negation is generalized to endomorphisms on this underlying set. We formalize both multirole logic (MRL) and linear multirole logic (LMRL) as natural generalizations of classical logic (CL) and classical linear logic (CLL), respectively, and also present a filter-based interpretation for intuitionism in multirole logic. Among various meta-properties established for MRL and LMRL, we obtain one named multiparty cut-elimination stating that every cut involving one or more sequents (as a generalization of a (binary) cut involving exactly two sequents) can be eliminated, thus extending the celebrated result of cut-elimination by Gentzen.

We define a monoidal semantics for algebraic theories. The basis for the definition is provided by the analysis of the structural rules in the term calculus of algebraic languages. Models are described both explicitly, in a form that generalises the usual definition in sets; and from a category-theoretical point of view, as monoidal functors on suitable classifying categories.

We present a completeness result for the implicit fragment of justification stit logic. Although this fragment allows for no strongly complete axiomatization, we show that a restricted form of strong completeness (subsuming weak completeness) is available, as well as deduce a version of restricted compactness property.

We explore the relationship between Brouwer's intuitionistic mathematics and Euclidean geometry. Brouwer wrote a paper in 1949 called "The contradictority of elementary geometry". In that paper, he showed that a certain classical consequence of the parallel postulate implies Markov's principle, which he found intuitionistically unacceptable. Read More


We study the complexity of the isomorphism relation for various classes of closed subgroups of the group of permutations of the natural numbers. We use the setting of Borel reducibility between equivalence relations on Polish spaces. For profinite, locally compact, and Roelcke precompact groups, we show that the complexity is the same as the one of countable graph isomorphism. Read More


In this article, we give a full description of the Wadge degrees of Borel functions from $\omega^\omega$ to a better quasi ordering $\mathcal{Q}$. More precisely, for any countable ordinal $\xi$, we show that the Wadge degrees of $\mathbf{\Delta}^0_{1+\xi}$-measurable functions $\omega^\omega\to\mathcal{Q}$ can be represented by countable joins of the $\xi$-th transfinite nests of $\mathcal{Q}$-labeled well-founded trees.

In order to understand the structure of the "typical" element of an automorphism group, one has to study how large the conjugacy classes of the group are. When typical is meant in the sense of Baire category, a complete description of the size of the conjugacy classes has been given by Kechris and Rosendal. Following Dougherty and Mycielski we investigate the measure theoretic dual of this problem, using Christensen's notion of Haar null sets. Read More


We propose foundations for a synthetic theory of $(\infty,1)$-categories within homotopy type theory. First we develop a simplicial type theory within a new three-layered type theory with shapes, whose contexts are extended by polytopes within directed cubes, which can be abstracted over using "extension types" that generalize the path-types of cubical type theory. The simplices are then used to probe the internal categorical structures of types, allowing us to define Segal types, in which binary composites exist uniquely up to homotopy, and Rezk types, in which the categorical isomorphisms are additionally equivalent to the type-theoretic identities -- a "local univalence" condition.

It is proved that the category $\mathbb{EM}$ of extended multisets is dually equivalent to the category $\mathbb{CHMV}$ of compact Hausdorff MV-algebras with continuous homomorphisms, which is in turn equivalent to the category of complete and completely distributive MV-algebras with homomorphisms that reflect principal maximal ideals.

We continue the analysis of definably compact groups definable in a real closed field $\mathcal{R}$. In [3], we proved that for every definably compact definably connected semialgebraic group $G$ over $\mathcal{R}$ there are a connected $R$-algebraic group $H$, a definable injective map $\phi$ from a generic definable neighborhood of the identity of $G$ into the group $H\left(R\right)$ of $R$-points of $H$ such that $\phi$ acts as a group homomorphism inside its domain. The above result and our study of locally definable covering homomorphisms for locally definable groups combine to prove that if such group $G$ is in addition abelian, then its o-minimal universal covering group $\widetilde{G}$ is definably isomorphic, as a locally definable group, to a connected open locally definable subgroup of the o-minimal universal covering group $\widetilde{H\left(R\right)^{0}}$ of the group $H\left(R\right)^{0}$ for some connected $R$-algebraic group $H$.

Formulae of the Lambek calculus are constructed using three binary connectives, multiplication and two divisions. We extend it using a unary connective, positive Kleene iteration. For this new operation, following its natural interpretation, we present two lines of calculi. Read More
