We present a precise correspondence between separation logic and a simple notion of predicate BI, extending the earlier correspondence given between part of separation logic and propositional BI. Moreover, we introduce the notion of a BI hyperdoctrine and show that it soundly models classical and intuitionistic first and higherorder predicate BI, and use it to show that we may easily extend separation logic to higherorder. We also demonstrate that this extension is important for program proving, since it provides sound reasoning principles for data abstraction in the presence of

this paper, we give an abstract 2 categorical characterization of Wtypes. We calculate these Wtypes explicitly in some categories of presheaves and sheaves on a site, and in the gluing category or Freyd cover. (We also have an explicit description in the case of Hyland's realizability topos, which will be presented in [17].) These explicit calculations can be formalized in a weak predicative metatheory, and lead to the result that if E is any suitably filtered pretopos with dependent products and Wtypes, then so is the category of internal sheaves on a site in E (Remark 5.9). Our paper is organized as follows. In Section 2 we review some standard definitions concerning pretoposes and dependent products. In Section 3 we present the categorical definition of the Wconstruction, and in Section 4 we prove some of its basic functoriality properties; e.g., that it turns coequalizers into equalizers. In Section 5, a construction is presented which to each map between (pre)sheaves of sets associates a sheaf of wellfounded trees, and it is proved that this is in fact the Wtype in the category (pre)sheaves of sets (Theorem 5.6). In Section 6, we discuss the Wconstruction for the Freyd cover. Finally, in Section 7 it is shown how these categorical constructions are not only analogous to but explicitly related to MartinLof type theory. 2 Pretoposes and dependent products

It is well known that one can build models of full higherorder dependent type theory (also called the calculus of constructions) using partial equivalence relations (PERs) and assemblies over a partial combinatory algebra (PCA). But the idea of categories of PERs and ERs (total equivalence relations) can be applied to other structures as well. In particular, we can easily dene the category of ERs and equivalencepreserving continuous mappings over the standard category Top 0 of topological T 0 spaces; we call these spaces (a topological space together with an ER) equilogical spaces and the resulting category Equ. We show that this categoryin contradistinction to Top 0 is a cartesian closed category. The direct proof outlined here uses the equivalence of the category Equ to the category PEqu of PERs over algebraic lattices (a full subcategory of Top 0 that is well known to be cartesian closed from domain theory). In another paper with Carboni and Rosolini (cited herein) a more abstract categorical generalization shows why many such categories are cartesian closed. The category Equ obviously contains Top 0 as a full subcategory, and it naturally contains many other well known subcategories. In particular, we show why, as a consequence of work of Ershov, Berger, and others, the KleeneKreisel hierarchy of countable functionals of nite types can be naturally constructed in Equ from the natural numbers object N by repeated use in Equ of exponentiation and binary products. We also develop for Equ notions of modest sets (a category equivalent to Equ) and assemblies to explain why a model of dependent type theory is obtained. We make some comparisons of this model to other, known models. 1

Image factorizations in regular categories are stable under pullbacks, so they model a natural modal operator in dependent type theory. This unary type constructor [A] has turned up previously in a syntactic form as a way of erasing computational content, and formalizing a notion of proof irrelevance. Indeed, semantically, the notion of a support is sometimes used as surrogate proposition asserting inhabitation of an indexed family. We give rules for bracket types in dependent type theory and provide complete semantics using regular categories. We show that dependent type theory with the unit type, strong extensional equality types, strong dependent sums, and bracket types is the internal type theory of regular categories, in the same way that the usual dependent type theory with dependent sums and products is the internal type theory of locally cartesian closed categories. We also show how to interpret rstorder logic in type theory with brackets, and we make use of the translation to compare type theory with logic. Specically, we show that the propositionsastypes interpretation is complete with respect to a certain fragment of intuitionistic rstorder logic. As a consequence, a modied doublenegation translation into type theory (without bracket types) is complete for all of classical rstorder logic.
The Temporal Logic of Coalgebras via Galois Algebras

This paper introduces a temporal logic for coalgebras. Nexttime and lasttime operators are dened for a coalgebra, acting on predicates on the state space. They give rise to what is called a Galois algebra. Galois algebras form models of temporal logics like Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) and Computation Tree Logic (CTL). The mapping from coalgebras to Galois algebras turns out to be functorial, yielding indexed categorical structures. This gives many examples, for coalgebras of polynomial functors on sets. Additionally, it will be shown how \fuzzy" predicates on metric spaces, and predicates on presheaves, yield indexed Galois algebras, in basically the same coalgebraic manner. Keywords: Temporal logic, coalgebra, Galois connection, fuzzy predicate, presheaf Classication: 68Q60, 03G05, 03G25, 03G30 (AMS'91); D.2.4, F.3.1, F.4.1 (CR'98). 1 Introduction This paper combines the areas of coalgebra and of temporal logic. Coalgebras are simple mathematical structures (similar, but dual, to...

TinkerType is a pragmatic framework for compact and modular description of formal systems (type systems, operational semantics, logics, etc.). A family of related systems is broken down into a set of clauses – individual inference rules – and a set of features controlling the inclusion of clauses in particular systems. Simple static checks are used to help maintain consistency of the generated systems. We present TinkerType and its implementation and describe its application to two substantial repositories of typed lambdacalculi. The first repository covers a broad range of typing features, including subtyping, polymorphism, type operators and kinding, computational effects, and dependent types. It describes both declarative and algorithmic aspects of the systems, and can be used with our tool, the TinkerType Assembler,to generate calculi either in the form of typeset collections of inference rules or as executable ML typecheckers. The second repository addresses a smaller collection of systems, and provides modularized proofs of basic safety properties.
