Categorical Abstract Logic: Hidden Multi-Sorted Logics as Multi-Term Institutions
MetadataShow full item record
Babenyshev and Martins proved that two hidden multi-sorted deductive systems are deductively equivalent if and only if there exists an isomorphism between their corresponding lattices of theories that commutes with substitutions. We show that the -institutions corresponding to the hidden multi-sorted deductive systems studied by Babenyshev and Martins satisfy the multi-term condition of Gil-Férez. This provides a proof of the result of Babenyshev and Martins by appealing to the general result of Gil-Férez pertaining to arbitrary multi-term -institutions. The approach places hidden multi-sorted deductive systems in a more general framework and bypasses the laborious reuse of well-known proof techniques from traditional abstract algebraic logic by using “off the shelf” tools.
