We study Girard's Linear Logic from the point of view of giving a concrete computational interpretation of the logic, based on the CurryHoward isomorphism. In the case of Intuitionistic Linear Logic, this leads to a refinement of the lambda calculus, giving finer control over order of evaluation and storage allocation, while maintaining the logical content of programs as proofs, and computation as cutelimination.

This paper presents a step forward in the use of partial evaluation for interpreting and compiling programs, as well as for automatically generating a compiler from denotational definitions of programming languages. We determine the static and dynamic semantics of a programming language, reduce the expressions representing the static semantics, and generate object code by instantiating the expressions representing the dynamic semantics. By processing the static semantics of the language, programs get compiled. By processing the static semantics of the partial evaluator, compilers are generated. The correctness of a compiler is guaranteed by the correctness of both the executable specification and our partial evaluator. The results reported in this paper improve on previous work in the domain of compiler generation [16, 30], and solves several open problems in the domain of partial evaluation [15]. In essence: ffl Our compilation goes beyond a mere syntaxtosemantics mapping since the ...

We propose a notion of uniform ideal (certain Scottclosed sets) to characterise strictness properties. This enables us to explain why Hughes' and Wadler's H projection for lazy list strictness analysis is not in general expressible as an abstract interpretation property of the standard semantics. We give circumstances when it is so expressible. Doing so casts light on Burn's HB projection and his question of its relationship to H. Uniform ideals are a generalisation of the sets of values corresponding to types in (simple) polymorphic type systems. Wadler's doublylifted abstract domain constructor for lazy lists can be seen as a special case which only uses certain uniform ideals. The conuence of strictness and type theory furthers Kuo and Mishra's notion of \strictness types". Summary of results We characterise strictness properties as uniform ideals. This enables us to give abstract interpretation properties to show that a function on list(t 1 +t 2 ) is Hstrict (Wadler an...
