Modal logic is the study of modalities - expressions that qualify assertions about the truth of statements. This volume collects together a number of the author's papers on modal logic, beginning with his work on the duality between algebraic and set-theoretic modals, and including two new articles, one on infinitary rules of inference, and the other about recent results on the relationship between modal logic and first-order logic.

One of the achievements of the theory of coalgebras is to make clear that some seemingly different areas are related by duality. This text explains this duality. Recent research lead to the insight that modal logic is dual to equational logic.

This Handbook documents the current state of modal logic, a lively area of logical research which was born in philosophy, but which has since made its way into mathematics, linguistics, computer science, AI, and even economic game theory.

Apart from giving a general introduction to the fundamental ideas and methods of applying algebra in logic, the purpose of this text is to present recent developments from algebra as well as modal logic, in an integrated format.
