Probabilistic Power Domains, Information Systems, and Locales

The probabilistic power domain construction of Jones and Plotkin [6, 7] is defined by a construction on dcpo's. We present alternative definitions in terms of information systems `a la Vickers [12], and in terms of locales. On continuous domains, all three definitions coincide. 1 Introduction To model probabilistic and randomized algorithms in the semantic framework of dcpo's and Scott continuous functions, Jones and Plotkin introduce in [6, 7] the probabilistic power domain construction PD . It forms a computational monad in the sense of [8] in the category of dcpo's and continuous functions and various of its subcategories of `domains'. Every probabilistic powerdomain PDX is equipped with a family of binary operations + p indexed by a real number p between 0 and 1 such that A+ p B denotes the result of choosing A with probability p and B with probability 1 \Gamma p. Other applications of PD were found in [1]. The probabilistic powerdomain of the upper power space [10] of a second ...

We present a typebased technique for the verification of deadlockfreedom in asynchronous concurrent systems. Our approach is to start with an interaction category such as ASProc, where objects are types containing safety specifications and morphisms are processes. We then use a specification structure to add information to the types so that they specify stronger properties. The extra information in this case concerns deadlockfreedom, and in the resulting category ASProc D , combining welltyped processes preserves deadlockfreedom. It is also possible to accommodate noncompositional methods within the same framework. The systems we consider are asynchronous, hence issues of divergence become significant; our approach incorporates an elegant treatment of both divergence and successful termination. As an example, we use our methods to verify the deadlockfreedom of an implementation of the alternatingbit protocol. Address for Correspondence Dr S. J. Gay Department of ...
Stable Bistructure Models of PCF
, 1994
"... Stable bistructures are a generalisation of event structures to represent spaces of functions at higher types; the partial order of causal dependency is replaced by two orders, one associated with input and the other output in the behaviour of functions. They represent Berry's bidomains. The rep ..."

Stable bistructures are a generalisation of event structures to represent spaces of functions at higher types; the partial order of causal dependency is replaced by two orders, one associated with input and the other output in the behaviour of functions. They represent Berry's bidomains. The representation can proceed in two stages. Bistructures form a categorical model of Girard's linear logic consisting of a linear category together with a comonad. The comonad has a coKleisli category which is equivalent to a cartesianclosed full subcategory of Berry's bidomains. A main motivation for bidomains came from the full abstraction problem for Plotkin's functional language PCF. However, although the bidomain model incorporates both the Berry stable order and the Scott pointwise order, its PCF theory (those inequalities on terms which hold in the bidomain model) does not include that of the Scott model. With a simple modification we can obtain a new model of PCF, combining the Berry and Scott orders, which does not have this inadequacy.

This paper is a summary of the following six publications: (1) Stable Power Domains [Hec94d] (2) Product Operations in Strong Monads [Hec93b] (3) Power Domains Supporting Recursion and Failure [Hec92] (4) Lower Bag Domains [Hec94a] (5) Probabilistic Domains [Hec94b] (6) Probabilistic Power Domains, Information Systems, and Locales [Hec94c] After a general introduction in Section 0, the main results of these six publications are summarized in Sections 1 through 6. 0 Introduction In this section, we provide a common framework for the summarized papers. In Subsection 0.1, Moggi's approach to specify denotational semantics by means of strong monads is introduced. In Subsection 0.2, we specialize this approach to languages with a binary choice construct. Strong monads can be obtained in at least two ways: as free constructions w.r.t. algebraic theories (Subsection 0.3), and by using second order functions (Subsection 0.4). Finally, formal definitions of those concepts which are used in all...
