On the Taylor Expansion of Probabilistic lambda-terms

Authors: Ugo Dal Lago and Thomas Leventis

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 131, 4th International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD 2019)


Abstract
We generalise Ehrhard and Regnier’s Taylor expansion from pure to probabilistic lambda-terms. We prove that the Taylor expansion is adequate when seen as a way to give semantics to probabilistic lambda-terms, and that there is a precise correspondence with probabilistic Böhm trees, as introduced by the second author. We prove this adequacy through notions of probabilistic resource terms and explicit Taylor expansion.
