### Abstract

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 Curry-Howard correspondence) to a novel intuitionistic modal propositional logic. We give natural deduction, sequent calculus and Hilbert-style presentations of this logic and prove strong normalisation and confluence results. 1 Introduction The computational lambda calculus was introduced by Moggi (1989; 1991) as a metalanguage for denotational semantics which more faithfully models real programming language features such as non-termination, differing evaluation strategies, non-determinism and side-effects than does the ordinary simply typed lambda calculus. The starting point for Moggi's work is an explicit semantic distinc...

Strong normalisation proofs usually use variants of Tait’s reducibility method (=-=Tait, 1967-=-); the extension of Tait’s method to commuting conversions as well as βreductions is due to Prawitz (1971). It is possible to use Prawitz’s technique to give a proof of strong normalisation for λMLT (... |

Any linear category (model for intuitionistic linear logic, see (Benton et al., 1992; =-=Bierman, 1995-=-)), gives rise to a CL-model as a subcategory of the category of algebras for the ! comonad. Whilst this is interesting, not all CL-models arise in this way because the monad part of the16 Benton, Bi... |
