Abstract

We investigate intermediate logics between the bunched logics Boolean BI and Classical BI, obtained by combining classical propositional logic with various flavours of Hyland and De Paiva's full intuitionistic linear logic. Thus, in addition to the usual multiplicative conjunction (with its adjoint implication and unit), our logics also feature a multiplicative disjunction (with its adjoint co-implication and unit). The multiplicatives behave "sub-classically", in that disjunction and conjunction are related by a weak distribution principle, rather than by De Morgan equivalence. We formulate a Kripke semantics, covering all our sub-classical bunched logics, in which the multiplicatives are naturally read in terms of resource operations. Our main theoretical result is that validity according to this semantics coincides with provability in a corresponding Hilbert-style proof system. Our logical investigation sheds considerable new light on how one can understand the multiplicative disjunction, better known as linear logic's "par", in terms of resource operations. In particular, and in contrast to the earlier Classical BI, the models of our logics include the heap-like memory models of separation logic, in which disjunction can be interpreted as a property of intersection operations over heaps.
