It is here that Kripke fully develops the analogy with the algebraic results of Jónsson and Tarski and proves completeness and decidability for propositional systems T, S4, S5, and B (the Brouwersche system), which is here introduced It is in this paper that two crucial generalizations of the model theory are introduced” (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
