The goal of reverse mathematics is to study the implication and non-implication relationships between theorems. These relationships have their own internal logic, allowing some implications and non-implications to be derived directly from others. The goal of this thesis is to characterize this logic in order to capture the relationships between specific mathematical works. The results of our study are a finite set of rules for this logic and the corresponding soundness and completeness theorems. We also compare our logic with modal logic and strict implication logic. In addition, we explain two applications of S-logic in topology and second order arithmetic.
