We present a new category of games on graphs and derive from it a model for Intuitionistic Linear Logic. Our category has the computational flavour of concrete data structures but embeds fully and faithfully in an abstract games model. It differs markedly from the usual Intuitionistic Linear Logic setting for sequential algorithms. However, we show that with a natural exponential we obtain a model for PCF essentially equivalent to the sequential algorithms model. We briefly consider a more extensional setting and the prospects for a better understanding of the Longley Conjecture. 1

Abstract. We give a simple term calculus for the multiplicative exponential fragment of Classical Linear Logic, by extending Barber and Plotkin’s system for the intuitionistic case. The calculus has the nonlinear andlinear implications as the basic constructs, andthis design choice allows a technically managable axiomatization without commuting conversions. Despite this simplicity, the calculus is shown to be sound andcomplete for categorytheoretic models given by ∗autonomous categories with linear exponential comonads. 1

This paper presents an introduction to category theory with an emphasis on those aspects relevant to the analysis of the model theory of linear logic. With this in mind, we focus on the basic definitions of category theory and categorical logic. An analysis of cartesian and cartesian closed categories and their relation to intuitionistic logic is followed by a consideration of symmetric monoidal closed, linearly distributive and ∗autonomous categories and their relation to multiplicative linear logic. We examine nonsymmetric monoidal categories, and consider them as models of noncommutative linear logic. We introduce traced monoidal categories, and discuss their relation to the geometry of interaction. The necessary aspects of the theory of monads is introduced in order to describe the categorical modelling of the exponentials. We conclude by briefly describing the notion of full completeness, a strong form of categorical completeness, which originated in the categorical model theory of linear logic. No knowledge of category theory is assumed, but we do assume knowledge of linear logic sequent calculus and the standard models of linear logic, and modest familiarity with typed lambda calculus. 0

Abstract. We propose a semantic framework for modelling the linear usage of continuations in typed callbyname programming languages. On the semantic side, we introduce a construction for categories of linear continuations, which gives rise to cartesian closed categories with “linear classical disjunctions ” from models of intuitionistic linear logic with sums. On the syntactic side, we give a simply typed callbyname λµcalculus in which the use of names (continuation variables) is restricted to be linear. Its semantic interpretation into a category of linear continuations then amounts to the callbyname continuationpassing style (CPS) transformation into a linear lambda calculus with sum types. We show that our calculus is sound for this CPS semantics, hence for models given by the categories of linear continuations.

It is wellknown that weakening and contraction cause naïve categorical models of the classical sequent calculus to collapse to Boolean lattices. In previous work, summarized briefly herein, we have provided a class of models called classical categories which is sound and complete and avoids this collapse by interpreting cutreduction by a posetenrichment. Examples of classical categories include boolean lattices and the category of sets and relations, where both conjunction and disjunction are modelled by the settheoretic product. In this article, which is selfcontained, we present an improved axiomatization of classical categories, together with a deep exploration of their structural theory. Observing that the collapse already happens in the absence of negation, we start with negationfree models called Dummett categories. Examples include, besides the classical categories above, the category of sets and relations, where both conjunction and disjunction are modelled by the disjoint union. We prove that Dummett categories are MIX, and that the partial order can be derived from homsemilattices which have a straightforward prooftheoretic definition. Moreover, we show that the GeometryofInteraction construction can be extended from multiplicative linear logic to classical logic, by applying it to obtain a classical

We introduce a typed version of Girard’s Geometry of Interaction, called Multiobject GoI (MGoI) semantics. We give an MGoI interpretation for multiplicative linear logic (MLL) without units which applies to new kinds of models, including finite dimensional vector spaces. For MGoI (i) we develop a version of partial traces and trace ideals (related to previous work of Abramsky, Blute, and Panangaden); (ii) we do not require the existence of a reflexive object for our interpretation (the original GoI 1 and 2 were untyped and hence involved a bureaucracy of domain equation isomorphisms); (iii) we introduce an abstract notion of orthogonality (related to work of Hyland and Schalk) and use this to develop a version of Girard’s theory of types, datum and algorithms in our setting, (iv) we prove appropriate Soundness and Completeness Theorems for our interpretations in partially traced categories with orthogonality; (v) we end with an application to completeness of (the original) untyped GoI in a unique decomposition category.

We describe a method for constructing models of linear logic based on the category of sets and relations. The resulting categories are generally not degenerate, in particular the are not compact closed nor do they have biproducts. The construction is simple, relying on the structure of a poset to avoid degeneracy. A number of wellknown models, for example coherence spaces and hypercoherences, are instances of this method.

In this paper, we present a categorical model for Multiplicative Additive Polarized Linear Logic MALLP, which is the linear fragment (without structural rules) of Olivier Laurent’s Polarized Linear Logic. Our model is based on an adjunction between reflective/coreflective full subcategories C−/C+ of an ambient ∗autonomous category C (with products). Similar structures were first introduced by M. Barr in the late 1970’s in abstract duality theory and more recently in work on game semantics for linear logic. The paper has two goals: to discuss concrete models and to present various completeness theorems. As concrete examples, we present (i) a hypercoherence model, using Ehrhard’s hereditary/antihereditary objects, (ii) a Chuspace model, (iii) a double gluing model over our categorical framework, and (iv) a model based on iterated double gluing over a ∗autonomous category. For the multiplicative fragment MLLP of MALLP, we present both weakly full (Läuchlistyle) as well as full completeness theorems, using a polarized version of functorial
