Abstract:

Extending the propositional dynamic logic with new (propositional) constants and axioms for them, we obtain a conservative extension and call it combinatory PDL (CPDL). Due to capturing the `identity of states' in CPDL, its expressive power, as compared to PDL, strongly increases. In CPDL we include $\alpha\cap\beta$ (the intersection of the programs $\alpha$ and $\beta$), $øverline\alpha$ (the complement of the program $\alpha$)---both of them being inexpressible in PDL---and formulas $\alpha\subset\beta$ and $\alpha=\beta$ as well as all traditional PDL operators $(\alpha\sp -1,\alpha\cup\beta,\alpha\sp *,\alpha\beta,A?)$. The axioms proposed are shown to be Kripke complete. CPDL is shown to be highly undecidable.
