this paper was quite di#erent, stemming from the axiomatics of categories of tangles (although the authors were aware of possible connections to iteration theories. In fact, similar axiomatics in the symmetric case, motivated by flowcharts and "flownomials" had been developed some years earlier by Stefanescu (Stefanescu 2000).) However, the first author realized, following a stimulating discussion with Gordon Plotkin, that traced monoidal categories provided a common denominator for the axiomatics of both the Girardstyle and AbramskyJagadeesanstyle versions of the Geometry of Interaction, at the basic level of the multiplicatives. This insight was presented in (Abramsky 1996), in which Girardstyle GoI was dubbed "particlestyle", since it concerns information particles or tokens flowing around a network, while the AbramskyJagadeesan style GoI was dubbed "wavestyle", since it concerns the evolution of a global information state or "wave". Formally, this distinction is based on whether the tensor product (i.e. the symmetric monoidal structure) in the underlying category is interpreted as a coproduct (particle style) or as a product (wave style). This computational distinction between coproduct and product interpretations of the same underlying network geometry turned out to have been partially anticipated, in a rather di#erent context, in a pioneering paper by E. S. Bainbridge (Bainbridge 1976), as observed by Dusko Pavlovic. These two forms of interpretation, and ways of combining them, have also been studied recently in (Stefanescu 2000). He uses the terminology "additive" for coproductbased (i.e. our "particlestyle") and "multiplicative" for productbased (i.e. our "wavestyle"); this is not suitable for our purposes, because of the clash with Linear Logic term...

We present a category of locally convex topological vector spaces which is a model of propositional classical linear logic, based on the standard concept of Kothe sequence spaces. In this setting, the spaces interpreting the exponential have a quite simple structure of commutative Hopf algebra. The coKleisli category of this linear category is a cartesian closed category of entire mappings. This work provides a simple setting where typed calculus and dierential calculus can be combined; we give a few examples of computations. 1
Towards a typed geometry of interaction

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 analyze the categorical foundations of Girard’s Geometry of Interaction Program for Linear Logic. The motivation for the work comes from the importance of viewing GoI as a new kind of semantics and thus trying to relate it to extant semantics. In an earlier paper we showed that a special case of Abramsky’s GoI situations–ones based on Unique Decomposition Categories (UDC’s)–exactly captures Girard’s functional analytic models in his first GoI paper, including Girard’s original Execution formula in Hilbert spaces, his notions of orthogonality, types, datum, algorithm, etc. Here we associate to a UDCbased GoI Situation a denotational model (a ∗autonomous category (without units) with additional exponential structure). We then relate this model to some of the standard GoI models via a fullyfaithful embedding into a doublegluing category, thus connecting up GoI with earlier Full Completeness
A Categorical Model for the Geometry of Interaction Abstract

We consider the multiplicative and exponential fragment of linear logic (MELL) and give a Geometry of Interaction (GoI) semantics for it based on unique decomposition categories. We prove a Soundness and Finiteness Theorem for this interpretation. We show that Girard’s original approach to GoI 1 via operator algebras is exactly captured in this categorical framework.
