By Guy McCusker PhD, BA Hons (auth.)

This publication is a minor revision of the thesis submitted in August 1996; no significant alterations were made. besides the fact that, i need to take this chance to say that because the thesis used to be written, discoveries were made which might permit a considerable simplification and strengthening of the consequences in Chapters three and six. specifically, it truly is now attainable to version sums appropriately within the classification I in addition to in £, which means the definability result of bankruptcy 6 will be said and proved on the intensional point, making them less complicated and masses nearer in spirit to the unique proofs of Abramsky, Jagadeesan, Malacaria, Hyland, Ong and Nickau [10,61,79]. This additionally leads particularly straightforwardly to an knowing of call-by-value languages. info of those advancements are available in [14,73]. it's also worthy declaring that development has been made on the various subject matters steered for destiny learn in bankruptcy 7. particularly, totally summary versions were came across for numerous varieties of languages with neighborhood variables [8,13-16], and a completely entire video games version of the polymorphic language approach F has been built by means of Hughes [59]. man McCusker February 1998 Acknowledgements firstly, i have to thank my manager, Samson Abramsky. It used to be he who first brought me to video game semantics and steered avenues of study within the region; this booklet will surely no longer exist have been it no longer for him.

Sample text

So suppose ml and m2 are O-moves in srI. Then ml is followed in s. by some P-move n, and n must be hereditarily justified by the same move as ml, so n appears in srI, so ml and m2 are not consecutive. If ml and m2 are two P-moves in s, then m2 is immediately preceded in s by some O-move n, and n must have the same hereditary justifier as m2, so n appears in srI, so that ml and m2 are not consecutive. Therefore srI is alternating. For the bracketing condition, note that if a question in s has been answered, then it appears in srI if and only if its answer does.

Otherwise B - 0 C is active and T has control. Observe that the component of a move in B is always different to that of the previous move. For if m is in B with component A, B, then it is an O-move when considered as being in A - 0 B. By the switching condition on A - 0 B, the previous move cannot be in A. If it is in B, then it is a P-move in A - 0 B and hence has component B, C. If it is in C then it also has component B, C. This corresponds to the intuition that moves in B transfer control from one strategy to the other.

B - 0 C, we define the composite morphism (1; T : A -+ C to be (1t ; T. 5. 3 can be used to show that composition is associative, so we do indeed have a category. For products, note that if A and B are well-opened then so is A&B. Define projections fst : A&B -t A and snd : A&B -t B to be the strategies der A&B ; 71"1 and derA&B; 71"2 respectively. Pairing can be defined exactly as in Q, and works for the same reasons. 6} (0-, r) ; 71"1 {products in Q} 0-. B. B --
