Regular modal logic

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In modal logic, a regular modal logic L is a modal logic closed under the duality of the modal operators:

\Diamond A \equiv \lnot\Box\lnot A

and the rule

(A\land B)\to C \vdash (\Box A\land\Box B)\to\Box C.

Every regular modal logic is classical, and every normal modal logic is regular and hence classical.
