Refutation of SallÚ's Longstanding Conjecture

Abstract

The lambda-calculus possesses a strong notion of extensionality, called "the omega-rule", which has been the subject of many investigations. It is a longstanding open problem whether the equivalence obtained by closing the theory of B÷hm trees under the omega-rule is strictly included in Morris's original observational theory, as conjectured by SallÚ in the seventies. In a recent work, Breuvart et al. have shown that Morris's theory satisfies the omega-rule. In this paper we demonstrate that the two aforementioned theories actually coincide, thus disproving SallÚ's conjecture.
