ABSTRACT = {A new typed, higher-order logic is described which
appears particularly well fitted to reasoning about
forms of computation whose operational behaviour can
be specified using the {\em Natural Semantics\/}
style of structural operational
semantics~\cite{Kah}. The logic's underlying type
system is Moggi's {\em computational
metalanguage}~\cite{Mog1}, which enforces a
distinction between computations and values via the
categorical structure of a strong monad. This is
extended to a (constructive) predicate logic with
modal formulas about evaluation of computations to
values, called {\em evaluation modalities}. The
categorical structure corresponding to this kind of
logic is explained and a couple of examples of
categorical models given.\par As a first example of
the naturalness and applicability of this new logic
to program semantics, we investigate the translation
of a (tiny) fragment of Standard ML into a theory
over the logic, which is proved computationally
adequate for ML's Natural Semantics~\cite{MTH}.
Whilst it is tiny, the ML fragment does however
contain both higher-order functional and imperative
features, about which the logic allows us to reason
without having to mention global states explicitly.}

in First Order Intuitionistic Propositional Logic},
JOURNAL = {Jour.\ Symbolic Logic},
VOLUME = 57,
YEAR = 1992,
PAGES = {33--52},
ABSTRACT = {We prove the following surprising property of
Heyting's intuitionistic propositional calculus,
$\IpC$. Consider the collection of formulas, $\phi$,
built up from propositional variables
($p,q,r,\ldots$) and falsity ($\F$) using
conjunction ($\conj$), disjunction ($\disj$) and
implication ($\imp$). Write $\vdash\phi$ to indicate
that such a formula is intuitionistically valid. We
show that for each variable $p$ and formula $\phi$
there exists a formula $\All_p\phi$ (effectively
computable from $\phi$), containing only variables
not equal to $p$ which occur in $\phi$, and such
that for all formulas $\psi$ not involving $p$,
$\vdash\psi\imp\All_p\phi$ if and only if
$\vdash\psi\imp\phi$. Consequently quantification
over propositional variables can be modelled in
$\IpC$, and there is an interpretation of the second
order propositional calculus, $\IpC^2$, in $\IpC$
which restricts to the identity on first order
propositions.\par An immediate corollary is the
strengthening of the usual Interpolation Theorem for
$\IpC$ to the statement that there are least and
greatest interpolant formulas for any given pair of
formulas. The result also has a number of
interesting consequences for the algebraic
counterpart of $\IpC$, the theory of Heyting
algebras. In particular we show that a model of
$\IpC^2$ can be constructed whose algebra of
truth-values is equal to any given Heyting algebra.}

ABSTRACT = {The use of positive inductive definitions pervades
the mathematical and logical foundations of computer
science. The dual concept of co-inductive (or
negative inductive) definition is also important, if
somewhat less common. It often arises when
constructing and reasoning about (potentially)
infinite objects. In this tutorial talk I will
concentrate on co-inductively defined equality
relations and the use of `bisimulations' to
establish equalitites. The talk will describe the
origin of this technique in the theory of concurrent
processes, will touch upon its general formulation,
and will dwell upon recent applications of it for
reasoning about equality of functional programs,
both from an operational and a denotational point of
view. [Note: This abstract did not appear in the

motivated by the desire to identify what, if any,

locality\/} of state, independent of other
properties such as side-effects, exceptional
termination and non-termination due to recursion. We
consider a simple language (equivalent to a fragment
of Standard ML) of typed, higher order functions
that can dynamically create fresh {\em names}. Names
are created with local scope, can be tested for
equality and can be passed around via function
application, but that is all.\par We demonstrate
that despite the simplicity of the language and its
operational semantics, the observable properties of
such functions can be very subtle. Two methods are
introduced for analyzing Morris-style observational
equivalence between expressions in the language. The
first method introduces a notion of `applicative'
equivalence incorporating a syntactic version of
O'Hearn and Tennent's relationally parametric
functors and a version of {\em representation
independence\/} for local names. This applicative
equivalence is properly contained in the relation of
observational equivalence, but coincides with it for
first order expressions (and is decidable
there). The second method develops a general,
categorical framework for computationally adequate
models of the language, based on Moggi's {\em
monadic\/} approach to denotational semantics. We
give examples of models, one of which is fully
abstract for first order expressions. No fully
abstract (concrete) model of the whole language is
known.}

ABSTRACT = {This paper establishes a new property of predomains
recursively defined using the cartesian product,
disjoint union, partial function space and convex
powerdomain constructors. We prove that the partial
order on such a recursive predomain $D$ is the
greatest fixed point of a certain monotone operator
associated to $D$. This provides a structurally
defined family of proof principles for these
recursive predomains: to show that one element of
$D$ approximates another, it suffices to find a
binary relation containing the two elements that is
a post-fixed point for the associated monotone
operator. The statement of the proof principles is
independent of any of the various methods available
for explicit construction of recursive
predomains. Following Milner and Tofte, the method
of proof is called {\em co-induction}. It closely
resembles the way bisimulations are used in
concurrent process calculi.\par Two specific
instances of the co-induction principle already
occur in work of Abramsky in the form of `internal
full abstraction' theorems for denotational
semantics of SCCS and the lazy lambda calculus. In
the first case post-fixed binary relations are
precisely Abramsky's {\em partial bisimulations},
whereas in the second case they are his {\em
applicative bisimulations}. The co-induction
principle also provides an apparently useful tool
for reasoning about equality of elements of
recursively defined datatypes in (strict or lazy)
higher order functional programming languages.}

ABSTRACT = {New tools are presented for reasoning about
properties of recursively defined domains. We work
within a general, category-theoretic framework for
various notions of `relation' on domains and for
actions of domain constructors on relations.
Freyd's analysis of recursive types in terms of a
property of mixed initiality/finality is transferred
to a corresponding property of {\em invariant\/}
relations. The existence of invariant relations is
proved under completeness assumptions about the
notion of relation. We show how this leads to
simpler proofs of the computational adequacy of
denotational semantics for functional programming
languages with user-declared datatypes. We show how
the initiality/finality property of invariant
relations can be specialized to yield an induction
principle for admissible subsets of recursively
defined domains, generalizing the principle of
structural induction for inductively defined
sets. We also show how the initiality/finality
property gives rise to the co-induction principle
studied by the author ({\em Theoretical Computer
Science\/} {\bf 124}, 195--219 (1994)), by which
equalities between elements of recursively defined
domains may be proved via an appropriate notion of
`bisimulation'.}

ABSTRACT = {This note gives a new proof of the `operational
extensionality' property of Abramsky's lazy lambda
calculus--namely the coincidence of contextual
equivalence with a co-inductively defined notion of
`applicative bisimilarity'. This purely syntactic
result is here proved using a logical relation (due
to Plotkin) between the syntax and its denotational
semantics. The proof exploits a mixed
inductive/co-inductive characterisation of the
logical relation recently discovered by the author.

ABSTRACT = {A parametric logical relation between the phrases of
an Algol-like language is presented. Its definition
involves the structural operational semantics of the
language, but was inspired by recent
denotationally-based work of O'Hearn and Reynolds on
translating Algol into a predicatively polymorphic
linear lambda calculus. The logical relation yields
an applicative characterisation of contextual
equivalence for the language and provides a useful
(and complete) method for proving equivalences. Its
utility is illustrated by giving simple and direct
proofs of some contextual equivalences, including an
interesting equivalence due to O'Hearn which hinges
upon the undefinability of `snapback' operations
(and which goes beyond the standard suite of
`Meyer-Sieber' examples). Whilst some of the
mathematical intricacies of denotational semantics
are avoided, the hard work in this operational
approach lies in establishing the `fundamental
property' for the logical relation---the proof of
which makes use of a compactness property of
fixpoint recursion with respect to evaluation of
phrases. But once this property has been
established, the logical relation provides a
verification method with an attractively low
mathematical overhead.}

ABSRACT = {Languages such as ML or Lisp permit the use of
recursively defined function expressions with
locally declared storage locations. Although this
can be very convenient from a programming point of
view it severely complicates the properties of
program equivalence even for relatively simple
fragments of such languages---such as the simply
typed fragment of Standard~ML with integer-valued
references considered here. This paper presents a
method for reasoning about \emph{contextual
equivalence} of programs involving this combination
of functional and procedural features. The method is
based upon the use of a certain kind of
\emph{logical relation} parameterised by relations
between program states. The form of this logical
relation is novel, in as much as it involves
relations not only between program expressions, but
also between program continuations (also known as
\emph{evaluation contexts}). The authors found this
approach necessary in order to establish the
`Fundamental Property of logical relations' in the
presence of both dynamically allocated local state
and recursion. The logical relation characterises
contextual equivalence and yields a proof of the
best known context lemma for this kind of
language---the Mason-Talcott \Quote{ciu} theorem.
Moreover, it is shown that the method can prove
examples where such a context lemma is not much help
and which involve representation independence,
higher order memoising functions, and profiling
functions.}

abstract = {Existential types have proved useful for classifying
various kinds of information hiding in programming
languages, such as occurs in abstract datatypes and
objects. In this paper we address the question of
when two elements of an existential type are
semantically equivalent. Of course, it depends what
one means by `semantic equivalence'. Here we take a
syntactic approach---so semantic equivalence will
mean some kind of operational equivalence. The paper
begins by surveying some of the literature on this
topic involving `logical relations'. Matters become
quite complicated if the programming language mixes
existential types with function types and features
involving non-termination (such as recursive
definitions). We give an example (suggested by
Ian~Stark) to show that in this case the existence
of suitable relations is sufficient, but not
necessary for proving operational equivalences at
existential types. Properties of this and other
examples are proved using a new form of
operationally-based logical relation which does in
fact provide a useful characterisation of
operational equivalence for existential types.}

theory with atoms (\emph{FM-sets}) can serve as the
semantic basis of meta-logics for specifying and
reasoning about formal systems involving name
binding, $\alpha$-conversion, capture avoiding

theory one can express statements quantifying over
`fresh' names and we use this to give a novel
set-theoretic interpretation of name abstraction.
Inductively defined FM-sets involving this
name-abstraction set former (together with cartesian
product and disjoint union) can correctly encode
object-level syntax modulo $\alpha$-conversion. In
this way, the standard theory of algebraic data
types can be extended to encompass signatures
involving binding operators. In particular, there
is an associated notion of structural recursion for
defining syntax-manipulating functions (such as
capture avoiding substitution, set of free
variables, etc) and a notion of proof by structural
induction, both of which remain pleasingly close to
informal practice.}
