The contraction-free sequent calculus G4 for intuitionistic logic is extended by rules following a general rule-scheme for nonlogical axioms. Admissibility of structural rules for these extensions is proved in a direct way by induction on derivations. This method permits the representation of various applied logics as complete, contraction- and cut-free sequent calculus systems with some restrictions on the nature of the derivations. As specific examples, intuitionistic theories of apartness and…

Admissibility of structural rules for these extensions is proved in a direct way by induction on derivations. This method permits the representation of various applied logics as complete, contraction- and cut-free sequent calculus systems with some restrictions on the nature of the derivations. As specific examples, intuitionistic theories of apartness and order are treated.
