AN EIGHT-VALUED PRACONSISTENT LOGIC
Languages of publication
It is known that many-valued paraconsistent logics are useful for expressing uncertain and inconsistency-tolerant reasoning in a wide range of Computer Science. Some four-valued and sixteen-valued logics have especially been well-studied. Some four-valued logics are not so ne-grained, and some sixteen-valued logics are enough ne-grained, but rather complex. In this paper, a natural eight-valued paraconsistent logic rather than four-valued and sixteen-valued logics is introduced as a Gentzen-type sequent calculus. This eight-valued logic is enough ne-grained and simpler than sixteen-valued logic. A triplet valuation semantics is introduced for this logic, and the completeness theorem for this semantics is proved. The cut-elimination theorem for this logic is proved, and this logic is shown to be decidable.
