In this paper the intersection type discipline as defined in [Barendregt et al. ’83] is studied. We will present two different and independent complete restrictions of the intersection type discipline. The first restricted system, the strict type assignment system, is presented in section two. Its major feature is the absence of the derivation rule (≤) and it is based on a set of strict types. We will show that these together give rise to a strict filter lambda model that is essentially different from the one presented in [Barendregt et al. ’83]. We will show that the strict type assignment system is the nucleus of the full system, i.e. for every derivation in the intersection type discipline there is a derivation in which (≤) is used only at the very end. Finally we will prove that strict type assignment is complete for inference semantics. The second restricted system is presented in section three. Its major feature is the absence of the type ω. We will show that this system gives rise to a filter λImodel and that type assignment without ω is complete for the λIcalculus. Finally we will prove that a lambda term is typeable in this system if and only if it is strongly normalizable.

Principality and Decidable Type Inference for FiniteRank Intersection Types

Principality of typings is the property that for each typable term, there is a typing from which all other typings are obtained via some set of operations. Type inference is the problem of finding a typing for a given term, if possible. We define an intersection type system which has principal typings and types exactly the strongly normalizable terms. More interestingly, every finiterank restriction of this system (using Leivant's first notion of rank) has principal typings and also has decidable type inference. This is in contrast to System F where the finite rank restriction for every finite rank at 3 and above has neither principal typings nor decidable type inference. This is also in contrast to earlier presentations of intersection types where the status (decidable or undecidable) of these properties is unknown for the finiterank restrictions at 3 and above. Furthermore, the notion of principal typings for our system involves only one operation, substitution, rather than severa...

this paper (Compagnoni, Intersection Types and Bounded Polymorphism 3 1994; Compagnoni, 1995) has been used in a typetheoretic model of objectoriented multiple inheritance (Compagnoni & Pierce, 1996). Related calculi combining restricted forms of intersection types with higherorder polymorphism and dependent types have been studied by Pfenning (Pfenning, 1993). Following a more detailed discussion of the pure systems of intersections and bounded quantification (Section 2), we describe, in Section 3, a typed calculus called F ("Fmeet ") integrating the features of both. Section 4 gives some examples illustrating this system's expressive power. Section 5 presents the main results of the paper: a prooftheoretic analysis of F 's subtyping and typechecking relations leading to algorithms for checking subtyping and for synthesizing minimal types for terms. Section 6 discusses semantic aspects of the calculus, obtaining a simple soundness proof for the typing rules by interpreting types as partial equivalence relations; however, another prooftheoretic result, the nonexistence of least upper bounds for arbitrary pairs of types, implies that typed models may be more difficult to construct. Section 7 offers concluding remarks. 2. Background
New Notions of Reduction and NonSemantic Proofs of βStrong Normalization in Typed λCalculi

Two new notions of reduction for terms of the λcalculus are introduced and the question of whether a λterm is βstrongly normalizing is reduced to the question of whether a λterm is merely normalizing under one of the new notions of reduction. This leads to a new way to provestrong normalization for typedcalculi. Instead of the usual semantic proof style based on Girard's "candidats de reductibilite", termination can be proved using a decreasing metric over a wellfounded ordering in a style more common in the eld of term rewriting. This new proof method is applied to the simplytyped λcalculus and the system of intersection types.

We present a new system of intersection types for a compositionfree calculus of explicit substitutions with a rule for garbage collection, and show that it characterizes those terms which are strongly normalizing. This system extends previous work on the natural generalization of the classical intersection types system, which characterized head normalization and weak normalization, but was not complete for strong normalization. An important role is played by the notion of available variable in a term, which is a generalization of the classical notion of free variable.

We show how to characterize compositionally a number of evaluation properties of λterms using Intersection Type assignment systems. In particular, we focus on termination properties, such as strong normalization, normalization, head normalization, and weak head normalization. We consider also the persistent versions of such notions. By way of example, we consider also another evaluation property, unrelated to termination, namely reducibility to a closed term. Many of these characterization results are new, to our knowledge, or else they streamline, strengthen, or generalize earlier results in the literature. The completeness parts of the characterizations are proved uniformly for all the properties, using a settheoretical semantics of intersection types over suitable kinds of stable sets. This technique generalizes Krivine 's and Mitchell's methods for strong normalization to other evaluation properties.

U. Berger, [11] significantly simplified Tait’s normalisation proof for bar recursion [27], see also [9], replacing Tait’s introduction of infinite terms by the construction of a domain having the property that a term is strongly normalizing if its semantics is. The goal of this paper is to show that, using ideas from the theory of intersection types [2, 6, 7, 21] and MartinLöf’s domain interpretation of type theory [18], we can in turn simplify U. Berger’s argument in the construction of such a domain model. We think that our domain model can be used to give modular proofs of strong normalization for various type theory. As an example, we show in some details how it can be used to prove strong normalization for MartinLöf dependent type theory extended with bar recursion, and with some form of proofirrelevance. 1
