Coinductive formulas and a many-sorted interpolation theorem

  • Ursula Gropp (a1)

We use connections between conjunctive game formulas and the theory of inductive definitions to define the notions of a coinductive formula and its approximations. Corresponding to the theory of conjunctive game formulas we develop a theory of coinductive formulas, including a covering theorem and a normal form theorem for many sorted languages. Applying both theorems and the results on “model interpolation” obtained in this paper, we prove a many-sorted interpolation theorem for ω1ω-logic, which considers interpolation with respect to the language symbols, the quantifiers, the identity, and countably infinite conjunction and disjunction.
