General Information

Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic in which it is possible to
directly refer to worlds/times/states or whatever the elements of the
(Kripke) model are meant to represent. Although they date back to the
late 1960s, and have been sporadically investigated ever since, it is
only in the 1990s that work on them really got into its stride.

It is easy to justify interest in hybrid logic on applied grounds,
because of the usefulness of the additional expressive power. For
example, when reasoning about time one often wants to build up a series
of assertions about what happens at a particular instant, and standard
modal formalisms do not allow this. What is less obvious is that the
route hybrid logic takes to overcome this problem often actually
improves the behaviour of the underlying modal formalism. For example,
it becomes far simpler to formulate modal tableau, resolution, and
natural deduction in hybrid logic, and completeness and interpolation
results can be proved of a generality that is not available in
modal logic.

This special issue has its origin in the International Workshop on
Hybrid Logic (HyLo 2007), which was held 6-10 August in Dublin,
as part of the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and
Information (ESSLLI 2007). The HyLo 2007 workshop continued a
series of
previous workshops on hybrid logic.


Topics of interest include not only standard hybrid-logical machinery
like nominals, satisfaction operators, and the downarrow binder, but
generally extensions of modal logic that increase its expressive
