Modal logic is the study of modalities - expressions that qualify assertions about the truth of statements. This volume collects together a number of the author's papers on modal logic, beginning with his work on the duality between algebraic and set-theoretic modals, and including two new articles, one on infinitary rules of inference, and the other about recent results on the relationship between modal logic and first-order logic.

This Handbook documents the current state of modal logic, a lively area of logical research which was born in philosophy, but which has since made its way into mathematics, linguistics, computer science, AI, and even economic game theory.

The notions of strict, logical necessity and possibility and problems connected with them are treated in the book with the resources of modal symbolic logic. In general a balance is struck between philosophical and technical treatment of the issues.

Apart from giving a general introduction to the fundamental ideas and methods of applying algebra in logic, the purpose of this text is to present recent developments from algebra as well as modal logic, in an integrated format.
