The Difference λ-Calculus: A Language for Difference Categories

pdf-format:


Abstract

Cartesian difference categories are a recent generalisation of Cartesian differential categories which introduce a notion of "infinitesimal" arrows satisfying an analogue of the Kock-Lawvere axiom, with the axioms of a Cartesian differential category being satisfied only "up to an infinitesimal perturbation". In this work, we construct a simply-typed calculus in the spirit of the differential λ-calculus equipped with syntactic "infinitesimals" and show how its models correspond to difference λ-categories, a family of Cartesian difference categories equipped with suitably well-behaved exponentials.
