Irreflexive Modality in the Intuitionistic Propositional Logic and Novikov Completeness

A. Kuznetsov considered a logic which extended intuitionistic propositional logic by adding a notion of ‘irreflexive modality’. We describe an extension of Kuznetsov's logic having the following properties: (a) it is the unique maximal conservative (over intuitionistic propositional logic) extension of Kuznetsov's logic; (b) it determines a new unary logical connective w.r.t. Novikov's approach, i.e., there is no explicit expression within the system for the additional connective; (c) it is axiomatizable by means of one simple additional axiom scheme.
