We introduce a logic BI in which a multiplicative (or linear) and an additive (or intuitionistic) implication live sidebyside. The propositional version of BI arises from an analysis of the prooftheoretic relationship between conjunction and implication; it can be viewed as a merging of intuitionistic logic and multiplicative intuitionistic linear logic. The naturality of BI can be seen categorically: models of propositional BI's proofs are given by bicartesian doubly closed categories, i.e., categories which freely combine the semantics of propositional intuitionistic logic and propositional multiplicative intuitionistic linear logic. The predicate version of BI includes, in addition to standard additive quantifiers, multiplicative (or intensional) quantifiers # new and # new which arise from observing restrictions on structural rules on the level of terms as well as propositions. We discuss computational interpretations, based on sharing, at both the propositional and predic...

. This paper readdresses the old problem of providing a categorical model for Intuitionistic Linear Logic (ILL). In particular we compare the now standard model proposed by Seely to the lesser known one proposed by Benton, Bierman, Hyland and de Paiva. Surprisingly we find that Seely's model is unsound in that it does not preserve equality of proofs. We shall propose how to adapt Seely's definition so as to correct this problem and consider how this compares with the model due to Benton et al. 1 Intuitionistic Linear Logic For the first part we shall consider only the multiplicative, exponential fragment of Intuitionistic Linear Logic (MELL). Rather than give a detailed description of the logic and associated term calculus we assume that the reader is familiar with other work [15, 5]. The sequent calculus formulation is originally due to Girard [9] and is given below. Identity A \Gamma A \Gamma \Gamma B B; \Delta \Gamma C Cut \Gamma; \Delta \Gamma C \Gamma \Gamma A (I L ) \Gamm...

This paper introduces a language feature, called implicit parameters, that provides dynamically scoped variables within a staticallytyped HindleyMilner framework. Implicit parameters are lexically distinct from regular identifiers, and are bound by a special with construct whose scope is dynamic, rather than static as with let. Implicit parameters are treated by the type system as parameters that are not explicitly declared, but are inferred from their use. We present implicit parameters within a small callbyname Xcalculus. We give a type system, a type inference algorithm, and several semantics. We also explore implicit parameters in the wider settings of callbyneed languages with overloading, and callbyvalue languages with effects. As a witness to the former, we have implemented implicit parameters as an extension of Haskell within the Hugs interpreter, which we use to present several motivating examples. 1 A Scenario: Pretty Printing You have just finished writing the perfect pretty printer.

You’re thinking: JFP: Functional Pearl. But, there are just a few fussy details left. For example, you were not focusing on the unimportant details, so you hardcoded the width of the display to be 78 characters.

To my parents A general abstract theory for computation involving shared resources is presented. We develop the models of sharing graphs, also known as term graphs, in terms of both syntax and semantics. According to the complexity of the permitted form of sharing, we consider four situations of sharing graphs. The simplest is firstorder acyclic sharing graphs represented by letsyntax, and others are extensions with higherorder constructs (lambda calculi) and/or cyclic sharing (recursive letrec binding). For each of four settings, we provide the equational theory for representing the sharing graphs, and identify the class of categorical models which are shown to be sound and complete for the theory. The emphasis is put on the algebraic nature of sharing graphs, which leads us to the semantic account of them. We describe the models in terms of the notions of symmetric monoidal categories and functors, additionally with symmetric monoidal adjunctions and traced

Moggi’s computational lambda calculus is a metalanguage for denotational semantics which arose from the observation that many different notions of computation have the categorical structure of a strong monad on a cartesian closed category. In this paper we show that the computational lambda calculus also arises naturally as the term calculus corresponding (by the CurryHoward correspondence) to a novel intuitionistic modal propositional logic. We give natural deduction, sequent calculus and Hilbertstyle presentations of this logic and prove strong normalisation and confluence results. 1

In "Syntactic Control of Interference" (POPL, 1978), J. C. Reynolds proposes three design principles intended to constrain the scope of imperative state effects in Algollike languages. The resulting linguistic framework seems to be a very satisfactory way of combining functional and imperative concepts, having the desirable attributes of both purely functional languages (such as pcf) and simple imperative languages (such as the language of while programs). However, Reynolds points out that the "obvious" syntax for interference control has the unfortunate property that fireductions do not always preserve typings. Reynolds has subsequently presented a solution to this problem (ICALP, 1989), but it is fairly complicated and requires intersection types in the type system. Here, we present a much simpler solution which does not require intersection types. We first describe a new type system inspired in part by linear logic and verify that reductions preserve typings. We then define a class...

We study a typing scheme derived from a semantic situation where a single category possesses several closed structures, corresponding to dierent varieties of function type. In this scheme typing contexts are trees built from two (or more) binary combining operations, or in short, bunches. Bunched typing and its logical counterpart, bunched implications, have arisen in joint work of the author and David Pym. The present paper gives a basic account of the type system, and then focusses on concrete models that illustrate how it may be understood in terms of resource access and sharing. The most

Models of intuitionistic linear logic also provide models of Moggi's computational metalanguage. We use the adjoint presentation of these models and the associated adjoint calculus to show that three translations, due mainly to Moggi, of the lambda calculus into the computational metalanguage (direct, callbyname and callbyvalue) correspond exactly to three translations, due mainly to Girard, of intuitionistic logic into intuitionistic linear logic. We also consider extending these results to languages with recursion. 1. Introduction Two of the most significant developments in semantics during the last decade are Girard's linear logic [10] and Moggi's computational metalanguage [14]. Any student of these formalisms will suspect that there are significant connections between the two, despite their apparent differences. The intuitionistic fragment of linear logic (ILL) may be modelled in a linear model  a symmetric monoidal closed category with a comonad ! which satisfies some extr...
