Optimizing a Non-Deterministic Abstract Machine with Environments

Authors: Małgorzata Biernacka, Dariusz Biernacki, Sergueï Lenglet, and Alan Schmitt

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 299, 9th International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD 2024)


Abstract
Non-deterministic abstract machine (NDAM) is a recent implementation model for programming languages where one must choose among several redexes at each reduction step, like process calculi. These machines can be derived from a zipper semantics, a mix between structural operational semantics and context-based reduction semantics. Such a machine has been generated also for the λ-calculus without a fixed reduction strategy, i.e., with the full non-deterministic β-reduction. In that machine, substitution is an external operation that replaces all the occurrences of a variable at once. Implementing substitution with environments is more low-level and more efficient as variables are replaced only when needed. In this paper, we define a NDAM with environments for the λ-calculus without a fixed reduction strategy. We also introduce other optimizations, including a form of refocusing, and we show that we can restrict our optimized NDAM to recover some of the usual λ-calculus machines, e.g., the Krivine Abstract Machine. Most of the improvements we propose in this work could be applied to other NDAMs as well.

IMELL Cut Elimination with Linear Overhead

Authors: Beniamino Accattoli and Claudio Sacerdoti Coen

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 299, 9th International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD 2024)


Abstract
Recently, Accattoli introduced the Exponential Substitution Calculus (ESC) given by untyped proof terms for Intuitionistic Multiplicative Exponential Linear Logic (IMELL), endowed with rewriting rules at-a-distance for cut elimination. He also introduced a new cut elimination strategy, dubbed the good strategy, and showed that its number of steps is a time cost model with polynomial overhead for ESC/IMELL, and the first such one. Here, we refine Accattoli’s result by introducing an abstract machine for ESC and proving that it implements the good strategy and computes cut-free terms/proofs within a linear overhead.

Anti-Unification of Unordered Goals

Authors: Gonzague Yernaux and Wim Vanhoof

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 216, 30th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2022)


Abstract
Anti-unification in logic programming refers to the process of capturing common syntactic structure among given goals, computing a single new goal that is more general called a generalization of the given goals. Finding an arbitrary common generalization for two goals is trivial, but looking for those common generalizations that are either as large as possible (called largest common generalizations) or as specific as possible (called most specific generalizations) is a non-trivial optimization problem, in particular when goals are considered to be unordered sets of atoms. In this work we provide an in-depth study of the problem by defining two different generalization relations. We formulate a characterization of what constitutes a most specific generalization in both settings. While these generalizations can be computed in polynomial time, we show that when the number of variables in the generalization needs to be minimized, the problem becomes NP-hard. We subsequently revisit an abstraction of the largest common generalization when anti-unification is based on injective variable renamings, and prove that it can be computed in polynomially bounded time.
