He was a constructivist logician, who was influential in the development of intuitionistic logic[1] With Georg Kreisel, he was a developer of the theory of choice sequences.[2] He wrote one of the first texts on linear logic,[3] and, with Helmut Schwichtenberg, he co-wrote an important book on proof theory.[4]

He became a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1976.[5] Troelstra died on 7 March 2019.[6]
