In such theories, the notion of a history plays a crucial role: it is both a basic ingredient in the axiomatic definition of the framework, and it is used as a parameter of truth in semantics for languages with a future tense. Furthermore, histories—complete possible courses of events—ground the notion of modal consistency: a set of events is modally con- sistent iff there is a history containing that set. We will explain these roles of histories and highlight some critical aspects having to do with the fact that histories are global and, in a relevant sense, "big" objects. The notion of modal consistency, on the other hand, has both local and global aspects. We ask in how far a local notion of modal consistency can serve as an alternative to the common uses of histories, and work out two recent approaches to alternatives to histories. Com- bining these approaches, we develop a novel semantics for branching time.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Alternatives to histories? : employing a local notion of modal consistency in branching theories</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/40"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/27100/2/Mueller_271002.pdf"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/27100"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/40"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-03-26T08:51:23Z</dc:date> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/27100/2/Mueller_271002.pdf"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dc:contributor>Müller, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2013</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Erkenntnis ; 79 (2014), 3 Suppl. - S. 343-364</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-03-26T08:51:23Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Müller, Thomas</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
