The Functional Machine Calculus II: Semantics

Authors: Chris Barrett, Willem Heijltjes, and Guy McCusker

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 252, 31st EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2023)


Abstract
The Functional Machine Calculus (FMC), recently introduced by the second author, is a generalization of the lambda-calculus which may faithfully encode the effects of higher-order mutable store, I/O and probabilistic/non-deterministic input. Significantly, it remains confluent and can be simply typed in the presence of these effects. In this paper, we explore the denotational semantics of the FMC. We have three main contributions: first, we argue that its syntax - in which both effects and lambda-calculus are realised using the same syntactic constructs - is semantically natural, corresponding closely to the structure of a Scott-style domain theoretic semantics. Second, we show that simple types confer strong normalization by extending Gandy’s proof for the lambda-calculus, including a small simplification of the technique. Finally, we show that the typed FMC (without considering the specifics of encoded effects), modulo an appropriate equational theory, is a complete language for Cartesian closed categories.

A Coalgebraic Perspective on Probabilistic Logic Programming

Authors: Tao Gu and Fabio Zanasi

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 139, 8th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2019)


Abstract
Probabilistic logic programming is increasingly important in artificial intelligence and related fields as a formalism to reason about uncertainty. It generalises logic programming with the possibility of annotating clauses with probabilities. This paper proposes a coalgebraic perspective on probabilistic logic programming. Programs are modelled as coalgebras for a certain functor F, and two semantics are given in terms of cofree coalgebras. First, the cofree F-coalgebra yields a semantics in terms of derivation trees. Second, by embedding F into another type G, as cofree G-coalgebra we obtain a "possible worlds" interpretation of programs, from which one may recover the usual distribution semantics of probabilistic logic programming.

On Compositionality of Dinatural Transformations

Authors: Guy McCusker and Alessio Santamaria

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


Abstract
Natural transformations are ubiquitous in mathematics, logic and computer science. For operations of mixed variance, such as currying and evaluation in the lambda-calculus, Eilenberg and Kelly's notion of extranatural transformation, and often the even more general dinatural transformation, is required. Unfortunately dinaturals are not closed under composition except in special circumstances. This paper presents a new sufficient condition for composability. We propose a generalised notion of dinatural transformation in many variables, and extend the Eilenberg-Kelly account of composition for extranaturals to these transformations. Our main result is that a composition of dinatural transformations which creates no cyclic connections between arguments yields a dinatural transformation. We also extend the classical notion of horizontal composition to our generalized dinaturals and demonstrate that it is associative and has identities.

An Intensionally Fully-abstract Sheaf Model for pi

Authors: Clovis Eberhart, Tom Hirschowitz, and Thomas Seiller

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 35, 6th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2015)


Abstract
Following previous work on CCS, we propose a compositional model for the pi-calculus in which processes are interpreted as sheaves on certain simple sites. We define an analogue of fair testing equivalence in the model and show that our interpretation is intensionally fully abstract for it. That is, the interpretation preserves and reflects fair testing equivalence; and furthermore, any strategy is fair testing equivalent to the interpretation of some process. The central part of our work is the construction of our sites, whose heart is a combinatorial presentation of pi-calculus traces in the spirit of string diagrams. As in previous work, the sheaf condition is analogous to innocence in Hyland-Ong/Nickau games.

Leaving the Nest: Nominal Techniques for Variables with Interleaving Scopes

Authors: Murdoch J. Gabbay, Dan R. Ghica, and Daniela Petrisan

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 41, 24th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2015)


Abstract
We examine the key syntactic and semantic aspects of a nominal framework allowing scopes of name bindings to be arbitrarily interleaved. Name binding (e.g. delta x.M) is handled by explicit name-creation and name-destruction brackets (e.g. <delta x M x>) which admit interleaving. We define an appropriate notion of alpha-equivalence for such a language and study the syntactic structure required for alpha-equivalence to be a congruence. We develop denotational and categorical semantics for dynamic binding and provide a generalised nominal inductive reasoning principle. We give several standard synthetic examples of working with dynamic sequences (e.g. substitution) and we sketch out some preliminary applications to game semantics and trace semantics.
