The concept of relations over sets is generalized to relations over an arbitrary category, and used to investigate the abstraction (or logicalrelations) theorem, the identity extension lemma, and parametric polymorphism, for Cartesianclosedcategory models of the simply typed lambda calculus and PLcategory models of the polymorphic typed lambda calculus. Treatments of Kripke relations and of complete relations on domains are included.

Crossed complexes have longstanding uses, explicit and implicit, in homotopy theory and the cohomology of groups. It is here shown that the category of crossed complexes over groupoids has a symmetric monoidal closed structure in which the internal Hom functor is built from morphisms of crossed complexes, nonabelian chain homotopies between them and similar higher homotopies. The tensor product involves nonabelian constructions related to the commutator calculus and the homotopy addition lemma. This monoidal closed structure is derived from that on the equivalent category of ωgroupoids where the underlying cubical structure gives geometrically natural definitions of tensor products and homotopies.

We overview a programme to provide a unified semantics for computational effects based upon the notion of a countable enriched Lawvere theory. We define the notion of countable enriched Lawvere theory, show how the various leading examples of computational effects, except for continuations, give rise to them, and we compare the definition with that of a strong monad. We outline how one may use the notion to model three natural ways in which to combine computational effects: by their sum, by their commutative combination, and by distributivity. We also outline a unified account of operational semantics. We present results we have already shown, some partial results, and our plans for further development of the programme.

We examine a variety of liberal logical frameworks of partial algebras. Therefore we use simple, conjunctive and weak embeddings of institutions which preserve model categories and may map sentences to sentences, finite sets of sentences, or theory extensions using unique existential quantifiers, respectively. They faithfully represent theories, model categories, theory morphisms, colimit of theories, reducts etc. Moreover, along simple and conjunctive embeddings, theorem provers can be reused in a way that soundness and completeness is preserved. Our main result states the equivalence of all the logical frameworks with respect to weak embeddability. This gives us compilers between all frameworks. Thus it is a chance to unify the different branches of specification using liberal partial logics. This is important for reaching the goal of formal interoperability of different specification languages for software development. With formal interoperability, a specification can contain part...

Enriched Lawvere Theories

We define the notion of enriched Lawvere theory, for enrichment over a monoidal biclosed category V that is locally finitely presentable as a closed category. We prove that the category of enriched Lawvere theories is equivalent to the category of finitary monads on V. Morever, the Vcategory of models of a Lawvere Vtheory is equivalent to the Vcategory of algebras for the corresponding Vmonad. This all extends routinely to local presentability with respect to any regular cardinal. We finally consider the special case where V is Cat, and explain how the correspondence extends to pseudo maps of algebras.

This thesis is intended to help develop the theory of coalgebras by, first, taking classic theorems in the theory of universal algebras and dualizing them and, second, developing an internal logic for categories of coalgebras. We begin with an introduction to the categorical approach to algebras and the dual notion of coalgebras. Following this, we discuss (co)algebras for a (co)monad and develop a theory of regular subcoalgebras which will be used in the internal logic. We also prove that categories of coalgebras are complete, under reasonably weak conditions, and simultaneously prove the wellknown dual result for categories of algebras. We close the second chapter with a discussion of bisimulations in which we introduce a weaker notion of bisimulation than is current in the literature, but which is wellbehaved and reduces to the standard definition under the assumption of choice. The third chapter is a detailed look at three theorem's of G. Birkho# [Bir35, Bir44], presenting categorical proofs of the theorems which generalize the classical results and which can be easily dualized to apply to categories of coalgebras. The theorems of interest are the variety theorem, the equational completeness theorem and the subdirect product representation theorem. The duals of each of these theorems is discussed in detail, and the dual notion of "coequation" is introduced and several examples given. In the final chapter, we show that first order logic can be interpreted in categories of coalgebras and introduce two modal operators to first order logic to allow reasoning about "endomorphisminvariant" coequations and bisimulations internally. We also develop a translation of terms and formulas into the internal language of the base category, which preserves and reflects truth. La...

Lawvere theories and monads have been the two main category theoretic formulations of universal algebra, Lawvere theories arising in 1963 and the connection with monads being established a few years later. Monads, although mathematically the less direct and less malleable formulation, rapidly gained precedence. A generation later, the definition of monad began to appear extensively in theoretical computer science in order to model computational effects, without reference to universal algebra. But since then, the relevance of universal algebra to computational effects has been recognised, leading to renewed prominence of the notion of Lawvere theory, now in a computational setting. This development has formed a major part of Gordon Plotkin’s mature work, and we study its history here, in particular asking why Lawvere theories were eclipsed by monads in the 1960’s, and how the renewed interest in them in a computer science setting might develop in future.
