This project aims to initiate the study of the foundations of concept of probability from the viewpoint of modal logics, emphasizing the anodic modal logics (negation less) and the cathodic modal logics (modal extensions of logics of formal inconsistency with degrees of negation). Although this proposal has a theoretical character, the problems addressed are of interest of methods aimed at applications, in particular to the problems of probabilistic satisfiability and of conditional probability.
