Launchbury and Peyton Jones came up with an ingenious idea for embedding regions of imperative programming in a pure functional language like Haskell. The key idea was based on a simple modification of HindleyMilner's type system. Our first contribution is to propose a more natural encapsulation construct exploiting higherorder kinds, which achieves the same encapsulation effect, but avoids the ad hoc type parameter of the original proposal. The second contribution is a type safety result for encapsulation of strict state using both the original encapsulation construct and the newly introduced one. We establish this result in a more expressive context than the original proposal, namely in the context of the higherorder lambdacalculus. The third contribution is a type safety result for encapsulation of lazy state in the higherorder lambdacalculus. This result resolves an outstanding open problem on which previous proof attempts failed. In all cases, we formalize the intended implementations as simple bigstep operational semantics on untyped terms, which capture interesting implementation details not captured by the reduction semantics proposed previously. 1

It is well known that adding side effects to functional languages changes the operational equivalences of the language. We develop a new language construct, encap, that forces imperative pieces of code to behave purely functionally, i.e., without any visible side effects. The coercion operator encap provides a means of extending the simple reasoning principles for equivalences of code in a functional language to a language with side effects. In earlier work [36], similar coercion operators were developed, but their correctness required the underlying functional language to include parallel operations. The coercion operators developed here are simpler and are proven correct for purely sequential languages. The sequential setting requires the construction of fully abstract models for sequential callbyvalue languages and the formulation of a weak form of "monad" suitable for expressing the semantics of callbyvalue languages with side effects. 1 Introduction Two pieces of code are...
