On the expressiveness of frame satisfiability and fragments of second-order logic

Journal of Symbolic Logic 63 (1):73-82 (1998)
It was conjectured by Halpern and Kapron (Annals of Pure and Applied Logic, vol. 69, 1994) that frame satisfiability of propositional modal formulas is incomparable in expressive power to both Σ 1 1 (Ackermann) and Σ 1 1 (Bernays-Schonfinkel). We prove this conjecture. Our results imply that Σ 1 1 (Ackermann) and Σ 1 1 (Bernays-Schonfinkel) are incomparable in expressive power, already on finite graphs. Moreover, we show that on ordered finite graphs, i.e., finite graphs with a successor, Σ 1 1 (Bernays-Schonfinkel) is strictly more expressive than Σ 1 1 (Ackermann)
