He therefore invented another logical calculus that he called sequent calculus (Sequenzenkalkul, literally “calculus of sequences”) and made it the central topic of his thesis.
The ten thralls answered him with one mouth and in sequent words, saying, Whatso thou biddest us,
If at any stage of this “reduction process” the conclusion of a sequent is a compound formula, you have to consider any conjunct or any instance of universal quantification as a possible conclusion.
Ketonen wanted to formulate Skolem's formal rules of proof within sequent calculus.

Ketonen's idea was to define a system of proof search: one starts from a given sequent to be derived, chooses a formula in it, and writes the premisses of a rule that can conclude the given sequent.
A cut with such a sequent as one premiss has the other premiss equal to the conclusion and can therefore be deleted.
