Topological Completeness for Higher-Order Logic
Steve Awodey July 1997 |

## Abstract:Using recent results in topos theory, two systems of higher-order logic are shown to be complete with respect to sheaf models over topological spaces, so-called `topological semantics'. The first is classical higher-order logic, with relational quantification of finitely high type; the second system is a predicative fragment thereof with quantification over functions between types, but not over arbitrary relations. The second theorem applies to intuitionistic as well as classical logic
