Such that 1. If v is a variable of L, f (v) is a variable of L1 2. For every n-place connective C in L, there exists a wff of L\ A and variables v 1f —,v n of L such that f(Cv 1 ---v n ) = A and for every ntuple of wffs of L A 1 ,—,A n , f(CA^--A n ) = . f(v n )) f(A n )A. We can now say that Lf deductively includes L under the translation f provided a HLA implies f ( a ) HL«f (A) where f (a) is the set of wffs f (B) with B € W L .. Where L and V are deductive zero-order systems, it is sufficient that the above condition hold for each of the rules of L, since by virtue of the closure property it will then hold without restriction.

E. a defined recursive family of sets Sj), including a defined recursive criterion of "sameness" 2. A defined recursive criterion for linear order ("follows") and for sequential order of wffs (both satisfying F1-5 of chapter 1) 3. A finite set of derivation rules As we have seen in chapter 1, conditions 1 and 2 specify a set of wffs and a recursive criterion for sameness of wffs. Let L be a zero-order calculus and S the corresponding set of fsfs. Let F€ S and Fi,---,Fn be the elements of F. Then (a,A) i s a d e r i v a t i o n couple of Fj (in F) provided: 1.

The unique valuation theorem) Let r = (S,g) be a realization of a zero-order system L. Then there is a unique function g ' r : W L -» U such that: 1. If A 6 So, g'r(A) is the constant value of the function g(A). 2. If f € S n (n > 0) and X v , x n are elements of W L (wffs), then Proof: Let A beawff. By induction on H(A): (a) fl(A) = 1. Then A 6 SQ. Hence g' r (A) = g(A). Suppose g ' r and g " r both satisfy condition 1. Then g" r (A) = g(A). Hence g " r ( A ) = g(A) = g' r (A). (P) Suppose the theorem is true for all wffs B such that fi(B) < k.
