A Mathematical Characterization of Interpretation between Theories

Studia Logica 43 (3):295 - 303 (1984)
Of the various notions of reduction in the logical literature, relative interpretability in the sense of Tarski et al. [6] appears to be the central one. In the present note, this syntactic notion is characterized semantically, through the existence of a suitable reduction functor on models. The latter mathematical condition itself suggests a natural generalization, whose syntactic equivalent turns out to be a notion of interpretability quite close to that of Ershov [1], Szczerba [5] and Gaifman [2].
