A linear conservative extension of zermelo-Fraenkel set theory

Studia Logica 56 (3):361 - 392 (1996)
Abstract
In this paper, we develop the system LZF of set theory with the unrestricted comprehension in full linear logic and show that LZF is a conservative extension of ZF– i.e., the Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory without the axiom of regularity. We formulate LZF as a sequent calculus with abstraction terms and prove the partial cut-elimination theorem for it. The cut-elimination result ensures the subterm property for those formulas which contain only terms corresponding to sets in ZF–. This implies that LZF is a conservative extension of ZF– and therefore the former is consistent relative to the latter.
