Games and definability for system F

We present a gametheoretic model of the polymorphic λcalculus, system F, as a fibred category. Every morphism σ of the model defines an ηexpanded, βnormal form ˆσ of system F whose interpretation is σ. Thus the model gives a precise, nonsyntactic account of the calculus. 1

A programming metalogic is a formal system into which programming languages can be translated and given meaning. The translation should both reflect the structure of the language and make it easy to prove properties of programs. This thesis develops certain metalogics using techniques of category theory and treats recursion in a new way. The notion of a category with fixpoint object is defined. Corresponding to this categorical structure there are type theoretic equational rules which will be present in all of the metalogics considered. These rules define the fixpoint type which will allow the interpretation of recursive declarations. With these core notions FIX categories are defined. These are the categorical equivalent of an equational logic which can be viewed as a very basic programming metalogic. Recursion is treated both syntactically and categorically. The expressive power of the equational logic is increased by embedding it in an intuitionistic predicate calculus, giving rise to the FIX logic. This contains propositions about the evaluation of computations to values and an induction principle which is derived from the definition of a fixpoint object as an initial algebra. The categorical structure which accompanies the FIX logic is defined, called a FIX hyperdoctrine, and certain existence and disjunction properties of FIX are stated. A particular FIX hyperdoctrine is constructed and used in the proof of the same properties. PCFstyle languages are translated into the FIX logic and computational adequacy reaulta are proved. Two languages are studied: Both are similar to PCF except one has call by value recursive function declararations and the other higher order conditionals. ...
The Shuffle Hopf Algebra and Noncommutative Full Completeness

We present a full completeness theorem for the multiplicative fragment of a variant of noncommutative linear logic, Yetter's cyclic linear logic (CyLL). The semantics is obtained by interpreting proofs as dinatural transformations on a category of topological vector spaces, these transformations being equivariant under certain actions of a noncocommutative Hopf algebra called the shuffle algebra. Multiplicative sequents are assigned a vector space of such dinaturals, and we show that this space has as a basis the denotations of cutfree proofs in CyLL+MIX. This can be viewed as a fully faithful representation of a free *autonomous category, canonically enriched over vector spaces. This paper

Introduction to the Polymorphic Lambda Calculus John C. Reynolds Carnegie Mellon University December 23, 1994 The polymorphic (or secondorder) typed lambda calculus was invented by JeanYves Girard in 1971 [11, 10], and independently reinvented by myself in 1974 [24]. It is extraordinary that essentially the same programming language was formulated independently by the two of us, especially since we were led to the language by entirely different motivations. In my own case, I was seeking to extend conventional typed programming languages to permit the definition of "polymorphic" procedures that could accept arguments of a variety of types. I started with the ordinary typed lambda calculus and added the ability to pass types as parameters (an idea that was "in the air" at the time, e.g. [4]). For example, as in the ordinary typed lambda calculus one can write f int!int : x int : f(f (x)) to denote the "doubling" function for the type int, which accepts a function from integers
βηcomplete models for System F

We show that Friedman's proof of the existence of nontrivial βηcomplete models of λ→ can be extended to system F. We isolate a set of conditions which are sufficient to ensure βηcompleteness for a model of F (and αcompleteness at the level of types), and we discuss which class of models we get. In particular, the model introduced in [5], having as polymorphic maps exactly all possible Scott continuous maps, is βηcomplete and is hence the first known complete nonsyntactic model of F. In order to have a suitable framework where to express the conditions and develop the proof, we also introduce the very natural notion of "polymax models" of System F.
Towards a SetTheoretic Type Theory

this paper is to present such system of sets that may serve as a foundation for denotations of type expressions of a programming language. In this system there is no selfapplication and its existence is consistent with any classical set theory. Still, it is rich enough to contain highorder functions, polymorphism and dependent types. Also recursion operators as well as those needed to build types defined by recursive equations are present. 1 Basic notions

We present here a large family of concrete models for Girard and Reynolds polymorphism (System F ), in a non categorical setting. The family generalizes the construction of the model of Barbanera and Berardi [2], hence it contains complete models for F [5] and we conjecture that it contains models which are complete for F . It also contains simpler models, the simplest of them, E 2 ; being a second order variant of the EngelerPlotkin model E . All the models here belong to the continuous semantics and have underlying prime algebraic domains, all have the maximum number of polymorphic maps. The class contains models which can be viewed as two intertwined compatible webbed models of untyped calculus (in the sense of [8]), but it is much larger than this. Finally many of its models might be read as two intertwined strict intersection type systems. Contents 1

In functional programming, small programs are often combined to construct larger, more complex ones. The component reuse encouraged by this modular style of programming yields many benefits, but, unfortunately, modular programs also tend to be less efficient than their monolithic counterparts. Inefficiency is significantly attributable to the construction of intermediate data structures which "glue" together the smaller program components into larger ones. Fusion is the process of removing intermediate data structures from modularly constructed programs. Two particularly successful approaches to achieving fusion in functional languages have emerged in recent years. The first is a catamorphic fusion technique based on the promotion theorems of category theory. The second is a shortcut based on parametricity which fuses compositional programs via canned applications of traditional fold/unfold program transformation steps. Both techniques apply only to programs written in terms ...
