It's some kind of typed logic with lambda abstraction and some notion  
of witnessing, using Gertzen (I think!) style derivation notation.   
Those A |- B things mean A "derives" B.  The "|-" is also called a  
Tee.  If your mail client can see underlining, formulas like

A, B


A, B |- A

That's where the Tee gets its name.  It's a T under A, B.  The former  
notation is better for some uses, since it "meshes" with the method of  
"truth trees".
