We identify multirole logic as a new form of logic and formalize linear multirole logic (LMRL) as a natural generalization of classical linear logic (CLL). Among various meta-properties established for LMRL, we obtain one named multi-cut elimination stating that every cut between three (or more) sequents (as a generalization of a cut between two sequents) can be eliminated, thus extending the celebrated result of cut-elimination by Gentzen. We also present a variant of π-calculus for multiparty
