Monads are by now wellestablished as programming construct in functional languages. Recently, the notion of “Arrow ” was introduced by Hughes as an extension, not with one, but with two type parameters. At first, these Arrows may look somewhat arbitrary. Here we show that they are categorically fairly civilised, by showing that they correspond to monoids in suitable subcategories of bifunctors C op ×C → C. This shows that, at a suitable level of abstraction, arrows are like monads — which are monoids in categories of functors C → C. Freyd categories have been introduced by Power and Robinson to model computational effects, well before Hughes ’ Arrows appeared. It is often claimed (informally) that Arrows are simply Freyd categories. We shall make this claim precise by showing how monoids in categories of bifunctors exactly correspond to Freyd categories.

) 1 J. M. E. Hyland 2 C.H. L. Ong 3 University of Cambridge, England Abstract This paper is motivated by the discovery that an appropriate quotient SN 3 of the strongly normalising untyped 3terms (where 3 is just a formal constant) forms a partial applicative structure with the inherent application operation. The quotient structure satisfies all but one of the axioms of a partial combinatory algebra (pca). We call such partial applicative structures conditionally partial combinatory algebras (cpca). Remarkably, an arbitrary rightabsorptive cpca gives rise to a tripos provided the underlying intuitionistic predicate logic is given an interpretation in the style of Kreisel's modified realizability, as opposed to the standard Kleenestyle realizability. Starting from an arbitrary rightabsorptive cpca U , the tripostotopos construction due to Hyland et al. can then be carried out to build a modified realizability topos TOPm (U ) of nonstandard sets equipped with an equali...

We present a simple and workable axiomatization of domain theory within intuitionistic set theory, in which predomains are (special) sets, and domains are algebras for a simple equational theory. We use the axioms to construct a relationally parametric settheoretic model for a compact but powerful polymorphic programming language, given by a novel extension of intuitionistic linear type theory based on strictness. By applying the model, we establish the fundamental operational properties of the language. 1.
Coherence and Transitivity of Subtyping as Entailment
, 1996
"... The relation of inclusion between types has been suggested by the practice of programming as it enriches the polymorphism of functional languages. We propose a simple (and linear) sequent calculus for subtyping as logical entailment. This allows us to derive a complete and coherent approach to subty ..."

The relation of inclusion between types has been suggested by the practice of programming as it enriches the polymorphism of functional languages. We propose a simple (and linear) sequent calculus for subtyping as logical entailment. This allows us to derive a complete and coherent approach to subtyping from a few, logically meaningful sequents. In particular, transitivity and antisymmetry will be derived from elementary logical principles.
A Game Semantics For Generic Polymorphism

"... Genericity is the idea that the same program can work at many dierent data types.

Genericity is the idea that the same program can work at many dierent data types. Longo, Milstead and Soloviev proposed to capture the inability of generic programs to probe the structure of their instances by the following equational principle: if two generic programs, viewed as terms of type 8X:A[X ], are equal at any given instance A[T ], then they are equal at all instances. They proved that this rule is admissible in a certain extension of System F, but nding a semantically motivated model satisfying this principle remained an open problem.

In categorical proof theory, propositions and proofs are presented as objects and arrows in a category. It thus embodies the strong constructivist paradigms of propositionsastypes and proofsasconstructions, which lie in the foundation of computational logic. Moreover, in the categorical setting, a third paradigm arises, not available elsewhere: logicaloperationsasadjunctions. It offers an answer to the notorious question of the equality of proofs. So we chase diagrams in algebra of proofs. On the basis of these ideas, the present paper investigates proof theory of regular logic: the f; 9gfragment of the first order logic with equality. The corresponding categorical structure is regular fibration. The examples include stable factorisations, sites, triposes. Regular logic is exactly what is needed to talk about maps, as total and singlevalued relations. However, when enriched with proofsasarrows, this familiar concept must be supplied with an additional conversion rule, conn...

We show that an enriched version of Freyd's principle of versality holds in the Kleisli category of a commutative strong monad with fixedpoint object. This gives a general categorical setting in which it is possible to model recursive types involving the usual datatype constructors.
