    Created double-negation shift, with a proof that it is equivalent to double-negated excluded middle.

    If I’m not mistaken, this principle holds in the topos of sheaves on a space (or locale) XX iff XX contains a dense locally decidable open, i.e. a dense open set UO(X)U\in O(X) such that for all VUV\subseteq U we have UV¬VU\subseteq V\cup\neg V. An example is the Sierpinski space, a counterexample is the real line. (the negation is the closure of the complement)

    I suppose at least in the spatial case the local decidability is equivalent to discreteness, so the condition means that XX has a dense and discrete open subspace.

    An example satisfying T_2 is the 1-point compacitification of an infinite set.

    If you’d like to add this to the page with a proof, feel free!

    Did it, at least with proof outlines. I hope I didn’t make any mistakes!

    DNS holds in every Kripke model with finite frame.
