Nested sequents for the logic of conditional belief

Abstract : The logic of conditional belief, called Conditional Doxastic Logic (CDL), was proposed by Board, Baltag and Smets to model revis-able belief and knowledge in a multi-agent setting. We present a proof system for CDL in the form of a nested sequent calculus. To the best of our knowledge, ours is the first internal and standard calculus for this logic. We take as primitive a multi-agent version of the "comparative plausibility operator", as in Lewis' counterfactual logic. The calculus is analytic and provides a decision procedure for CDL. As a by-product we also obtain a nested sequent calculus for multi-agent modal logic S5i.
