Much of this material is familiar from the literature on temporal logics for programs and Propositional Dynamic Logic. We have given fairly complete proof details, but occasionally the reader may find it useful to consult [Goldblatt, 1987] or [van Benthem and Meyer-Viol, forthcoming]' In the subsequent part (,Building the model') we turn to the heart of the proof. The problem is this: we need to build a model, but this model must be based on afinite tree. An inductive construction suggests itself, but can it be shown to terminate after a finite number of steps?

We can enumerate all the singly negated formulas in Cl (~) as one list 'a1, ... an (we call this the negative enumeration) and all the non-negated formulas in Cl(~) as another list aI, ... ,an (we call this the positive enumeration), in such a way that the i-th item on the negative enumeration is the negation of the i-th item on the positive enumeration. Note that for any formula ¢ in Cl (~) there is a formula 1/); (1 ::; i ::; n) such that ¢ is logically equivalent to 7/J; and 7/J; occurs on either the negative or positive enumerations at the i-th place.
