    We study projectivity in temporal linear logic LTL with the aim to solve unification problem. Earlier [34] it was shown that not all formulas unifiable in LTL are projective. Therefore here we consider Until-fragment LTLU of LTL. By idea borrowed from [33] we find a short proof that all formulas...

Acts of signalling (communication between players), which are absent in game-theoretic presentations of first-order logic, play a fundamental role in the...
