Speaker: Revantha Ramanayake (Groningen)
Title: The first steps in cut-restriction
Date: Tuesday 8 March 2022
Time: 16:00-17:15
Location: Online

Abstract: Cut-elimination is a fundamental result of proof theory. It is the algorithm for eliminating cuts from a sequent calculus proof, leading to cut-free calculi and applications. Although the algorithm is remarkably robust in the sense that it applies with few amendments to many logics (irrespective of their semantics), it simply does not hold for most logics. Its importance is such that the invariable response is a move from the sequent calculus to richer proof formalisms in a bid to regain the cut-elimination. In this talk I will discuss the first steps in a radically different approach called cut-restriction: identifying how to adapt Gentzen’s age-old cut-elimination arguments to restrict the shape of the cut-formulas when elimination is not possible. I will present the “first level above cut-free”: restricting the standard sequent calculi for bi-intuitionistic logic and S5 to analytic cuts. These are two logics where (analytic) cuts are known to be essential.

This is joint work with Agata Ciabattoni (TU Wien) and Timo Lang (UCL).
