Head reduction and normalization in a call-by-value lambda-calculus

pdf-format:
4.pdf (0.5 MB)


Abstract

Recently, a standardization theorem has been proven for a variant of Plotkin's call-by-value lambda-calculus extended by means of two commutation rules (sigma-reductions): this result was based on a partitioning between head and internal reductions. We study the head normalization for this call-by-value calculus with sigma-reductions and we relate it to the weak evaluation of original Plotkin's call-by-value lambda-calculus. We give also a (non-deterministic) normalization strategy for the call-by-value lambda-calculus with sigma-reductions.
