The proof-theoretic analysis of transfinitely iterated quasi least fixed points. (English) Zbl 1115.03084

The author gives a proof-theoretic analysis of the iterated fixed-point theories \(\mathsf{ID}_{\alpha}^*\), \(\alpha\) less than a certain ordinal \(\Phi_0\). The theories \(\mathsf{ID}_{\alpha}^*\) are defined as the well-known theories \(\mathsf{ID}_{\alpha},\) but induction on the fixed points is restricted to formulas that contain fixed-point constants only positively. It is shown that the proof-theoretic ordinals \(| \mathsf{ID}_{\alpha}^*| \) of \(\mathsf{ID}_{\alpha}^*\) coincide with the ones of \(\widehat{\mathsf{ID}}_{\alpha}\), the theories \(\mathsf{ID}_{\alpha}\) but without any induction on fixed points.
