Monoid based semantics for linear formulas. (English) Zbl 1024.03063

Authors’ abstract: Each Girard quantale (i.e. commutative quantale with a selected dualizing elemnt) provides a support for a semantics for linear propositional formulas (but not for linear derivations). Several constructions of Girard quantales are known. We give two more constructions, one using an arbitrary partially ordered monoid and one using a partially ordered group (both commutative). In both cases the semantics can be controlled by a relation between pairs of elements of the support and formulas. This gives us a neat way of handling duality.
