Comparing Hierarchies of Types in Models of Linear Logic
, 2003

We show that two models M and N of linear logic collapse to the same extensional hierarchy of types, when (1) their monoidal categories C and D are related by a pair of monoidal functors F : C D : G and transformations Id C ) GF and Id D ) FG, and (2) their exponentials ! are related by distri ..."

We show that two models M and N of linear logic collapse to the same extensional hierarchy of types, when (1) their monoidal categories C and D are related by a pair of monoidal functors F : C D : G and transformations Id C ) GF and Id D ) FG, and (2) their exponentials ! are related by distributive laws % : ! : ! M G ) G ! N commuting to the promotion rule. The key ingredient of the proof is a notion of backandforth translation between the hierarchies of types induced by M and N. We apply this result to compare (1) the qualitative and the quantitative hierarchies induced by the coherence (or hypercoherence) space model, (2) several paradigms of games semantics: errorfree vs. erroraware, alternated vs. nonalternated, backtracking vs. repetitive, uniform vs. nonuniform.

Domain Theory provides a denotational semantics for programming languages and calculi containing fixed point combinators and other socalled paradoxical combinators. This dissertation presents results in the category theory and type theory of Axiomatic Domain Theory. Prompted by the adjunctions of Domain Theory, we extend Benton’s linear/nonlinear dualsequent calculus to include recursive linear types and define a class of models by adding Freyd’s notion of algebraic compactness to the monoidal adjunctions that model Benton’s calculus. We observe that algebraic compactness is better behaved in the context of categories with structural actions than in the usual context of enriched categories. We establish a theory of structural algebraic compactness that allows us to describe our models without reference to enrichment. We develop a 2categorical perspective on structural actions, including a presentation of monoidal categories that leads directly to Kelly’s reduced coherence conditions. We observe that Benton’s adjoint type constructors can be treated individually, semantically as well as syntactically, using free representations of distributors. We type various of fixed point combinators using recursive types and function types, which
