Basic Operational Preorders for Algebraic Effects in General, and for Combined Probability and Nondeterminism in Particular

Authors: Aliaume Lopez and Alex Simpson

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 119, 27th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2018)


Abstract
The "generic operational metatheory" of Johann, Simpson and Voigtländer (LiCS 2010) defines contextual equivalence, in the presence of algebraic effects, in terms of a basic operational preorder on ground-type effect trees. We propose three general approaches to specifying such preorders: (i) operational (ii) denotational, and (iii) axiomatic; coinciding with the three major styles of program semantics. We illustrate these via a nontrivial case study: the combination of probabilistic choice with nondeterminism, for which we show that natural instantiations of the three specification methods (operational in terms of Markov decision processes, denotational using a powerdomain, and axiomatic) all determine the same canonical preorder. We do this in the case of both angelic and demonic nondeterminism.

Probability Sheaves and the Giry Monad

Authors: Alex Simpson

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 72, 7th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2017)


Abstract
I introduce the notion of probability sheaf, which is a mathematical structure capturing the relationship between probabilistic concepts (such as random variable) and sample spaces. Various probability-theoretic notions can be (re)formulated in terms of category-theoretic structure on the category of probability sheaves. As a main example, I consider the Giry monad, which, in its original formulation, constructs spaces of probability measures. I show that the Giry monad generalises to the category of probability sheaves, where it turns out to have a simple, purely category-theoretic definition.

A convenient category of domains

Authors: Ingo Battenfeld, Matthias Schröder, and Alex Simpson

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6341, Computational Structures for Modelling Space, Time and Causality (2007)


Abstract
We motivate and define a category of "topological domains", whose objects are certain topological spaces, generalising the usual $omega$-continuous dcppos of domain theory. Our category supports all the standard constructions of domain theory, including the solution of recursive domain equations. It also supports the construction of free algebras for (in)equational theories, provides a model of parametric polymorphism, and can be used as the basis for a theory of computability. This answers a question of Gordon Plotkin, who asked whether it was possible to construct a category of domains combining such properties.
