Cirquent calculus is a new proof-theoretic approach, introduced

recently in “Introduction to cirquent calculus and abstract resource

semantics”. Its invention was motivated by the needs of computability

logic, which had stubbornly resisted any axiomatization attempts within

the framework of the traditional proof-theoretic approaches such as

sequent calculus or Hilbert-style systems.

The main distinguishing feature of cirquent calculus from the known

approaches is sharing: it allows us to account for the possibility of shared

resources (say, formulas) between different parts of a proof tree.

The version of cirquent calculus presented here can be called shallow

as it limits cirquents to depth 2. Deep versions of cirquent calculus, with

no such limits, are being currently developed.

The language of CL5

The cirquent calculus system that we consider here is called CL5.

CL5 axiomatizes the fragment of computability logic where all letters

are general and 0-ary. And the only logical operators are ,  and .

Furthermore, as in systems G1, G2 and G3 (Episodes 4 and 5),  is

only allowed on atoms (if this condition is not satisfied, the formula

should be rewritten into an equivalent one using the double negation and

DeMorgan’s principles). And FG is understood as an abbreviation of

EF.

We agree that, throughout this episode, “formula” exclusively means

a formula of the above fragment of the language of computability logic.

CL5 has 7 rules of inference: Identity, Mix, Exchange, Weakening,

Duplication, -Introduction and -Introduction. We present those rules,

as well as the concept of a cirquent, very informally through examples

and illustrations. More formal definitions, if needed, can be found in

“Introduction to cirquent calculus and abstract resource semantics”.

Theorem 15.1. For any formula F, the following statements are

equivalent:

(i) F is provable in CL5.

(ii) F is valid.

(iii) F is uniformly valid.

Furthermore, there is an effective procedure that takes a CL5-proof of

any formula F and constructs a uniform solution for F. We call this

property of CL5 (and the same property of any other deductive system)

uniform-constructive soundness.

15.15

Remember that we see the atoms of classical logic as 0-ary elementary letters, while,

on the other hand, the atoms of CL5 are 0-ary general letters.

Let us for now disregard this difference and see no distinction between the two sorts

of atoms. That is, let us see the formulas of CL5 as formulas of propositional classical

logic. An interesting question to ask then is how CL5 compares with classical logic.

Fact 15.2. Every formula provable in CL5 is a tautology of classical logic, but not

vice versa: some tautologies are not provable in CL5 (and hence not valid in

computability logic when their atoms are seen as general atoms).

The simplest example of a tautology not provable in CL5 is P(PP).

Indeed, this formula (cirquent) could only be derived by -Introduction from the

premise

 P PP

With a little thought one can see that the above cirquent, in turn, cannot be derived.

The next question to ask is how to strengthen CL5 so that it proves all tautologies

(and only tautologies). The answer turns out to be very simple. All it takes to extend

CL5 to a sound and complete system for classical logic is to add to it the contraction

rule:

Contraction

Merge two adjacent and identical formulas F and F into F

15.18

Affine logic is a variation of the famous linear logic. Multiplicative affine logic is

obtained from system G1 (see Episode 4) by deleting Contraction (as for linear logic,

it further deletes Weakening as well).

Our CL5 is also obtained by deleting Contraction from a deductive system for

classical logic, and it is natural to ask how the two compare. Here is the answer:

Fact 15.3. Every formula provable in multiplicative affine logic is also provable in

CL5, but not vice versa: some formulas provable in CL5 are not provable in

affine logic.

Blass’s principle

proven on slide 15.13 is an example of a formula provable in CL5 but not in affine

logic. In fact, one can show that any proof of Blass’s principle in G1 would

require using not only Contraction, but also Weakening. On the other hand, our

CL5-proof of it used neither Weakening nor Contraction (nor Duplication).
