On quasi-varieties of multiple valued logic models (abstract)

We extend the concept of quasi-variety of first-order models from classical logic to multiple valued logic (MVL) and study the relationship between quasi-varieties and existence of initial models in MVL. We define a concept of ‘Horn sentence’ in MVL and based upon our study of quasi-varieties of MVL models we derive the existence of initial models for MVL ‘Horn theories’.
