Modal and Temporal Logics

Modal and temporal logics are logical formalisms with possible world semantics, used for reasoning about a variety of phenomena such as the behaviour of programs, software systems, ethical norms, knowledge, and agential action. Canonical examples involve the basic modal logic K, linear-time temporal logic LTL, branching-time logics like CTL or CTL*, dynamic epistemic logic, and STIT logics. The research includes establishing the precise complexity of standard reasoning problems as well as designing efficient proof systems.
