Abstract : In this paper we consider the Intuitionistic Sentential Calculus with Suszko’s Identity (ISCI). After recalling the basic concepts of the logic and its associated Hilbert proof system, we introduce a newsound and complete class of models for ISCI which can be viewed as algebraic counterparts (and extensions) of sheaf-theoretic topological models of intuitionistic logic. We use this new class of models, called Beth semantics for ISCI, to derive a first labelled sequent calculus and show its adequacy w.r.t. the standard Hilbert axiomatization of ISCI. This labelled proof system, like all other current proof systems that we know of, does not enjoy the subformula property, which is problematic for achieving termination. We therefore introduce a second labelled sequent calculus in which the standard rules for identity are replaced with new special rules and show that this second calculus admits cut-elimination. Finally, using a key regularity property of the forcing relation in Beth models, we show that the eigenvariable condition can be dropped, thus leading to the termination and decidability results.
