A EUROPEAN MARIE SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE RISE PROJECT
The acronym MOSAIC stands for: Modalities in Substructural Logics: Theory, Methods and Applications.
Logic is a discipline that studies correct reasoning and true statements in a formal environment. Languages, deductive systems, syntax and semantics are its basic tools. Classical modal logics form a family of logics that focus on modes of truth, that is to say, they analyse if a statement is 'necessarily' or 'possibly' true, in a given situation. The EU-funded MOSAIC project is taking a closer look at modal logics based on the general setting of substructural logics. The latter are a wide class of formal systems including classical, intuitionistic, many-valued and paraconsistent logics, just to quote few. Beyond the theoretical analysis, the MOSAIC project also aims at developing tools and methods for substructural modal logics to impact several areas of applied science such as artificial intelligence, security and legal reasoning.
