Finite Tree Property for First-Order Logic with Identity and Functions

Notre Dame Journal of Formal Logic 46 (2):173-180 (2005)
The typical rules for truth-trees for first-order logic without functions can fail to generate finite branches for formulas that have finite models–the rule set fails to have the finite tree property. In 1984 Boolos showed that a new rule set proposed by Burgess does have this property. In this paper we address a similar problem with the typical rule set for first-order logic with identity and functions, proposing a new rule set that does have the finite tree property
