A Behavioral Notion of Subtyping
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1994
"... The use of hierarchy is an important component of objectoriented design. Hierarchy allows the use of type families, in which higher level supertypes capture the behavior that all of their subtypes have in common. For this methodology to be effective, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of ..."

is easy for programmers to use. The subtype relation is based on the specifications of the sub and supertypes; the paper presents a way of specifying types that makes it convenient to define the subtype relation. The paper also discusses the ramifications of this notion of subtyping on the design of type
GromovWitten classes, quantum cohomology, and enumerative geometry
 Commun. Math. Phys
, 1994
"... The paper is devoted to the mathematical aspects of topological quantum field theory and its applications to enumerative problems of algebraic geometry. In particular, it contains an axiomatic treatment of Gromov–Witten classes, and a discussion of their properties for Fano varieties. Cohomological ..."

Qualitative process theory
 MIT AI Lab Memo
, 1982
"... Objects move, collide, flow, bend, heat up, cool down, stretch, compress. and boil. These and other things that cause changes in objects over time are intuitively characterized as processes. To understand commonsense physical reasoning and make programs that interact with the physical world as well ..."

as people do we must understand qualitative reasoning about processes, when they will occur, their effects, and when they will stop. Qualitative process theory defines a simple notion of physical process that appears useful as a language in which to write dynamical theories. Reasoning about processes also

ChernSimons Gauge Theory as a String Theory
, 2003
"... Certain two dimensional topological field theories can be interpreted as string theory backgrounds in which the usual decoupling of ghosts and matter does not hold. Like ordinary string models, these can sometimes be given spacetime interpretations. For instance, threedimensional ChernSimons gaug ..."

A Theory of Objects
, 1996
"... Objectoriented languages were invented to provide an intuitive view of data and computation, by drawing an analogy between software and the physical world of objects. The detailed explanation of this intuition, however, turned out to be quite complex; there are still no standard definitions of such ..."

of such fundamental notions as objects, classes, and inheritance. Much progress was made by investigating the notion of subtyping within procedural languages and their theoretical models (lambda calculi). These studies clarified the role of subtyping in objectoriented languages, but still relied on complex encodings
String theory and noncommutative geometry
 JHEP
, 1999
"... We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero Bfield. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimally coupled (supersymmetric) gauge theory on a noncommutative space, and discuss the corrections away from ..."
