Abstract

 It is well known that the propositional modal logic GL of provability satisfies the de Jongh-Sambin fixed-point property. On the other hand, Montagna showed that the predicate modal system QGL, which is the natural variant of GL, loses the fixed-point property. In this paper, we discuss some versions of the fixed-point property for predicate modal logics. First, we prove that several extensions of QGL including NQGL do not have the fixed-point property. Secondly, we prove the fixed-point theorem for the logic QK + ▢n+1 ⊥. As a consequence, we obtain that the class FH of Kripke frames which are transitive and finite height satisfies the fixed-point property locally. We also show the failure of the Craig interpolation property for NQGL.Finally, we give a sufficient condition for formulas to have a fixed-point in QGL.
