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...

This paper presents an introduction to category theory with an emphasis on those aspects relevant to the analysis of the model theory of linear logic. With this in mind, we focus on the basic definitions of category theory and categorical logic. An analysis of cartesian and cartesian closed categories and their relation to intuitionistic logic is followed by a consideration of symmetric monoidal closed, linearly distributive and ∗autonomous categories and their relation to multiplicative linear logic. We examine nonsymmetric monoidal categories, and consider them as models of noncommutative linear logic. We introduce traced monoidal categories, and discuss their relation to the geometry of interaction. The necessary aspects of the theory of monads is introduced in order to describe the categorical modelling of the exponentials. We conclude by briefly describing the notion of full completeness, a strong form of categorical completeness, which originated in the categorical model theory of linear logic. No knowledge of category theory is assumed, but we do assume knowledge of linear logic sequent calculus and the standard models of linear logic, and modest familiarity with typed lambda calculus. 0
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.
