 Volume15: Advances in Modal Logic
Agata Ciabattoni, David Gabelaia and Igor Sedlár, eds
Since ancient times, philosophers have recognised that truth comes in many 'modes', so that a proposition can be not only true or false, but also, for example, 'necessary' or 'possible'. These ideas led to the modern field of modal logic, a lively area of research at the interface of philosophy, mathematics and computer science.
Nowadays, the term 'modal logic' is understood in a broad sense, allowing it to encompass logics for reasoning about seemingly unrelated phenomena such as knowledge, obligations, time, space, and proofs, among many others. Contemporary research in modal logic draws on techniques from many disciplines, including complexity theory, combinatorics, universal algebra, category theory, topology, and proof theory.
These proceedings record the papers presented at Advances in Modal Logic 2024, the 15th in a series of biennial conferences that aim to report on important new developments in pure and applied modal logic. Topics in this issue include epistemic modal logic, constructive and manyvalued modal logic, unification, algebraic and neighbourhood semantics, proof theory and complexity of modal logics, conditional and quantified modal logic.
