Abstract

In this paper we investigate a modal calculus of quantum metalogic which is complete and sound with respect to a dialogic semantics. This calculus calledM eff(Q eff) has three parts: one covering the formal metalogic, one reflecting the calculus of the object language, and one which is a link between object language and metalanguage. This third part is invariant with respect to a variation of the object language
