Goals
Dynamic logics are those that include modal operators that can modify the model in which they are being evaluated. Different dynamic logics have been investigated in the past, but a general perspective is still missing. In this project we aim to pursue the following goals.

[G1] Advance our knowledge on the model theory of dynamic logics by:
 a. Developing general notions of model equivalence (e.g., bisimulations)
 b. Relating these notions to their counterpart as logic games.
 c. Understanding the relation between dynamic "moves" in a graph game, and the notions mentioned above.
 d. Proving characterizations of these logics as fragments of classical logics (e.g., "van Benthem characterization theorems") using the notions of model equivalence previously introduced.

[G2] Design suitable proof calculi by:
 a. Understanding how to cope with logics which are not closed under uniform substitution.
 b. Defining the role of hybridization techniques (e.g., the use of nominals and labeling operators) in the context of evolving models.
 c. Demonstrating general completeness results (e.g., stable under the addition of axioms with particular properties).
 d. Developing general tableau calculi that can lead to implementations.
 e. Defining translations into classical logics.
 [G3] Investigate complexity issues by:
 a. Understanding the relation between dynamic operators and binders/quantifiers.
 b. Delineating the borderline between decidable and undecidable fragments.
 c. Proposing weak dynamic operators that give rise to decidable logics.
