1 Preliminaries ¨ del’s matrix logic G[0,1] is interesting as the logic of linear order. It is the Go structure [0, 1], ¬G , →G , ∨, ∧, ∃, ∀, {1} , where 1. for all x ∈ [0, 1], ¬G x = x →G 0, 2. for all x, y ∈ [0, 1], x →G y = 1 if x y and x →G y = y otherwise, 3. for all x, y ∈ [0, 1], x ∨ y = max(x, y), 4. for all x, y ∈ [0, 1], x ∧ y = min(x, y), 5. for a subset M ⊆ [0, 1], ∃(M ) = max(M ), where max(M ) is a maximal element of M , 6. for a subset M ⊆ [0, 1], ∀(M ) = min(M ), where min(M ) is a minimal element of M , 7.

Generalization: from ϕ infer ∀xϕ(x): ϕ . 3). 3 Sequent calculus for infinite valued Lukasiewicz’s propositional logic An original interpretation of a sequent for infinite valued Lukasiewicz’s logic L∞ was proposed by Metcalfe, Olivetti, and Gabbay in [96]. For setting this interpretation they used the following proposition: Proposition 6 Let M[−1,0] be the structure [−1, 0], max, min, &L , →L , 0 where • &L =: max(−1, x + y) and • x →L y =: min(0, y − x), 42 • 0 is the designated truth value, then ψ is logically valid in M[−1,0] iff ψ is logically valid in Lukasiewicz’s matrix logic M[0,1] .

By assumption, f (x1 , . . , xm ) ∈ Tn+1 iff f (x1 , . . , xm ) ∈ {0, n}, where xi ∈ {0, n}, 1 i m. The class Tn+1 of functions is precomplete. It is known that we can specify each (p + 1)-valued Lukasiewicz matrix logic for any prime number p (see [77]): Theorem 2 Ln+1 = Tn+1 iff n (for any n 2) is a prime number. ✷ This means that the set of logical functions in the logic MLp+1 , where p is a prime number, forms a precomplete set. Corollary 4. 1 Suppose there exists the infinite sequence of (ps + 1)-valued Lukasiewicz’s matrix logics MLp +1 ( ps is s-th prime number).
