Propositional and first-order bounded linear-time temporal logics (BLTL and FBLTL, respectively) are introduced by restricting Gentzen type sequent calculi for linear-time temporal logics. The corresponding Robinson type resolution calculi, RC and FRC for BLTL and FBLTL respectively are obtained. To prove the equivalence between FRC and FBLTL, a temporal version of Herbrand theorem is used. The completeness theorems for BLTL and FBLTL are proved for simple semantics with both a bounded time domain and some bounded valuation conditions on temporal operators. The cut-elimination theorems for BLTL and FBLTL are also proved using some theorems for embedding BLTL and FBLTL into propositional (first-order, respectively) classical logic. Although FBLTL is undecidable, its monadic fragment is shown to be decidable. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
