Flexibility of programming and efficiency of program execution are two important features of a programming language. Unfortunately, however, these two features conflict each other in design and implementation of a modern statically typed programming language. Flexibility is model of computation, while efficiency requires optimal use of lowlevel primitives specialized to individual data structures. The motivation of this work is to reconcile these two features by developing a mechanism for specializing polymorphic primitives based on static type information. We analyze the existing methods for compiling a record calculus and an unboxed calculus, extract their common structure, and develop a framework for typedirected specialization of polymorphism. 1

. We introduce a notion of Grothendieck logical relation and use it to characterise the definability of morphisms in stable bicartesian closed categories by terms of the simplytyped lambda calculus with finite products and finite sums. Our techniques are based on concepts from topos theory, however our exposition is elementary. Introduction The use of logical relations as a tool for characterising the definable elements in a model of the simplytyped calculus originated in the work of Plotkin [10], who obtained such a characterisation of the definable elements in the full type hierarchy using a notion of Kripke logical relation. Subsequently, the more general notion of a Kripke logical relation of varying arity was developed by Jung and Tiuryn, and shown to characterise the definable elements in any Henkin model [4]. Although not emphasised in [4], relations of varying arity are powerful enough to characterise relative definability with respect to any given set of elements con...
Categorical Glueing and Logical Predicates for Models of Linear Logic

"... We give a series of glueing constructions for categorical models of fragments of linear logic. Specifically, we consider the glueing of (i) symmetric monoidal closed categories (models of Multiplicative Intuitionistic Linear Logic), (ii) symmetric monoidal adjunctions (for interpreting the modality ..."

We give a series of glueing constructions for categorical models of fragments of linear logic. Specifically, we consider the glueing of (i) symmetric monoidal closed categories (models of Multiplicative Intuitionistic Linear Logic), (ii) symmetric monoidal adjunctions (for interpreting the modality !) and (iii) autonomous categories (models of Multiplicative Linear Logic); the glueing construction for autonomous categories is a mild generalization of the double glueing construction due to Hyland and Tan. Each of the glueing techniques can be used for creating interesting models of linear logic. In particular, we use them, together with the free symmetric monoidal cocompletion, for deriving Kripkelike parameterized logical predicates (logical relations) for the fragments of linear logic. As an application, we show full completeness results for translations between linear type theories. Contents 1 Introduction 3 2 Preliminaries 4 2.1 Symmetric Monoidal Structures . . . . . . . ....

We present a short proof of a folklore result: the Girard translation from the simply typed lambda calculus to the linear lambda calculus is fully complete. The proof makes use of a notion of logical predicates for intuitionistic linear logic. While the main result is of independent interest, this paper can be read as a tutorial on this proof technique for reasoning about relations between type theories.

Security properties are profitably expressed using notions of contextual equivalence, and logical relations are a powerful proof technique to establish contextual equivalence in typed lambda calculi, see e.g. Sumii and Pierce's logical relation for a cryptographic lambdacalculus. We clarify Sumii and Pierce's approach, showing that the right tool is prelogical relations, or lax logical relations in general: relations should be lax at encryption types, notably. To explore the difficult aspect of fresh name creation, we use Moggi's monadic lambdacalculus with constants for cryptographic primitives, and Stark's name creation monad. We define logical relations which are lax at encryption and function types but strict (nonlax) at various other types, and show that they are sound and complete for contextual equivalence at all types.
