\section{Derived Constructions}
\subsection{Cancellable Invariants}
Iris invariants as described in \Sref{sec:invariants} are persistent---once established, they hold forever.
However, based on them, it is possible to \emph{encode} a form of invariants that can be ``cancelled'' again.
First, we need some ghost state:
\textmon{CInvTok} \eqdef{}& \fracm
Now we define:
\CInvTok{\gname}{q} \eqdef{}& \ownGhost\gname{q} \\
\CInv{\gname}{\namesp}{\prop} \eqdef{}& \knowInv\namesp{\prop \lor \ownGhost\gname{1}}
It is then straight-forward to prove:
{\later\prop \vs[\bot] \Exists \gname. \CInvTok\gname{1} * \always\CInv\gname\namesp\prop}
{\CInv\gname\namesp\prop \proves \Acc[\namesp][\emptyset]{\CInvTok\gname{q}}{\later\prop}}
{\CInv\gname\namesp\prop \proves \CInvTok\gname{1} \vs[\namesp] \later\prop}
Cancellable invariants are useful, for example, when reasoning about data structures that will be deallocated: Every reference to the data structure comes with a fraction of the token, and when all fractions have been gathered, \ruleref{CInv-cancel} is used to cancel the invariant, after which the data structure can be deallocated.
\subsection{Non-atomic (``Thread-Local'') Invariants}
Sometimes it is necessary to maintain invariants that we need to open non-atomically.

We easily obtain:
