The “classical ” paradigm for denotational semantics models data types as domains, ��� � structured sets of some kind, and programs as (suitable) functions between domains. The semantic universe in which the denotational modelling is carried out is thus a category with domains as objects, functions as morphisms, and composition of morphisms given by function composition. A sharp distinction is then drawn between denotational and operational semantics. Denotational semantics is often referred to as “mathematical semantics ” because it exhibits a high degree of mathematical structure; this is in part achieved by the fact that denotational semantics abstracts away from the dynamics of computation—from time. By contrast, operational semantics is formulated in terms of the syntax of the language being modelled; it is highly intensional in character; and it is capable of expressing the dynamical aspects of computation. The classical denotational paradigm has been very successful, but has some definite limitations. Firstly, finestructural features of computation, such as sequentiality,

It is wellknown that weakening and contraction cause naïve categorical models of the classical sequent calculus to collapse to Boolean lattices. Starting from a convenient formulation of the wellknown categorical semantics of linear classical sequent proofs, we give models of weakening and contraction that do not collapse. Cutreduction is interpreted by a partial order between morphisms. Our models make no commitment to any translation of classical logic into intuitionistic logic and distinguish nondeterministic choices of cutelimination. We show soundness and completeness via initial models built from proof nets, and describe models built from sets and relations.

It is wellknown that weakening and contraction cause naïve categorical models of the classical sequent calculus to collapse to Boolean lattices. In previous work, summarized briefly herein, we have provided a class of models called classical categories which is sound and complete and avoids this collapse by interpreting cutreduction by a posetenrichment. Examples of classical categories include boolean lattices and the category of sets and relations, where both conjunction and disjunction are modelled by the settheoretic product. In this article, which is selfcontained, we present an improved axiomatization of classical categories, together with a deep exploration of their structural theory. Observing that the collapse already happens in the absence of negation, we start with negationfree models called Dummett categories. Examples include, besides the classical categories above, the category of sets and relations, where both conjunction and disjunction are modelled by the disjoint union. We prove that Dummett categories are MIX, and that the partial order can be derived from homsemilattices which have a straightforward prooftheoretic definition. Moreover, we show that the GeometryofInteraction construction can be extended from multiplicative linear logic to classical logic, by applying it to obtain a classical

Λµcalculus is a Böhmcomplete extension of Parigot's λµcalculus closely related with delimited control in functional programming. In this paper, we investigate the metatheory of untyped Λµcalculus by proving con uence of the calculus and characterizing the basic observables for the Separation theorem, canonical normal forms. Then, we de ne ΛS, a new type system for Λµcalculus which contains a special type construction for streams, and prove that strong normalization and type preservation hold. Thanks to the new typing discipline of ΛS, new computational behaviors can be observed, which were forbidden in previous type systems for λµcalculi. Those new typed computational behaviors witness the stream interpretation of Λµcalculus.
