The Central Valuations Monad (Early Ideas)

pdf-format:


Abstract

We give a commutative valuations monad Z on the category DCPO of dcpo’s and Scott-continuous functions. Compared to the commutative valuations monads given in [Xiaodong Jia et al., 2021], our new monad Z is larger and it contains all push-forward images of valuations on the unit interval [0, 1] along lower semi-continuous maps. We believe that this new monad will be useful in giving domain-theoretic denotational semantics for statistical programming languages with continuous probabilistic choice.
