### Abstract

We introduce a typed version of Girard’s Geometry of Interaction, called Multiobject GoI (MGoI) semantics. We give an MGoI interpretation for multiplicative linear logic (MLL) without units which applies to new kinds of models, including finite dimensional vector spaces. For MGoI (i) we develop a version of partial traces and trace ideals (related to previous work of Abramsky, Blute, and Panangaden); (ii) we do not require the existence of a reflexive object for our interpretation (the original GoI 1 and 2 were untyped and hence involved a bureaucracy of domain equation isomorphisms); (iii) we introduce an abstract notion of orthogonality (related to work of Hyland and Schalk) and use this to develop a version of Girard’s theory of types, datum and algorithms in our setting, (iv) we prove appropriate Soundness and Completeness Theorems for our interpretations in partially traced categories with orthogonality; (v) we end with an application to completeness of (the original) untyped GoI in a unique decomposition category.
