Kripke-Semantics, modal logic: the Kripke-Semantics is a formalization of modal logic (a logic with operators that can be interpreted as possibility and necessity) that does not restrict accessibility between possible worlds. In this case, accessibility means that the knowledge that something could be different exists in a world. Known systems with more or less severe restrictions on the accessibility relation are the systems T, D, B as well as S 4 and S 5. The systems differ among themselves by the increase of axioms. See also accessibility, necessity, possibility, semantics of possible worlds, modal realism, counterpart theory.
