Sharpened lower bounds for cut elimination

Journal of Symbolic Logic 77 (2):656-668 (2012)
Abstract
We present sharpened lower bounds on the size of cut free proofs for first-order logic. Prior lower bounds for eliminating cuts from a proof established superexponential lower bounds as a stack of exponentials, with the height of the stack proportional to the maximum depth d of the formulas in the original proof. Our results remove the constant of proportionality, giving an exponential stack of height equal to d — 0(1). The proof method is based on more efficiently expressing the Gentzen-Solovay cut formulas as low depth formulas.
