Abstract.
We study many important properties of negations using neighborhood semantics, including antitony, De Morgan laws, classical double negation, constructive double negation and so on. We generalize the correspondence between such properties of negations and the conditions on the frames. Finally we discuss the duality between the category of distributive modal algebras with antitone negations and the category of descriptive generated neighborhood frames.
