Observably Deterministic Concurrent Strategies and Intensional Full Abstraction for Parallel-or

Abstract

Although Plotkinís parallel-or is inherently deterministic, it has a non-deterministic interpretation in games based on (prime) event structures - in which an event has a unique causal history - because they do not directly support disjunctive causality. General event structures can express disjunctive causality and have a more permissive notion of determinism, but do not support hiding. We show that (structures equivalent to) deterministic general event structures do support hiding, and construct a new category of games based on them with a deterministic interpretation of aPCFpor, an affine variant of PCF extended with parallel-or. We then exploit this deterministic interpretation to give a relaxed notion of determinism (observable determinism) on the plain event structures model. Putting this together with our previously introduced concurrent notions of well-bracketing and innocence, we obtain an intensionally fully abstract model of aPCFpor.
