    We provide complete axiomatizations for several fragments of Core XPath, the navigational core of XPath 10 introduced by Gottlob. Koch and Pichler A complete axiomatization for a given fragment is a set of equivalences from which every other valid equivalence is derivable; equivalences can be thought of as (undirected) rewrite rules. Specifically, we axiomatize single axis fragments of Core XPath as well as full Core XPath Our completeness proofs use results and techniques from modal logic.
