Paper: Categories of embeddings (at LICS 1988)

Authors: Thierry Coquand


A categorical generalization of the notion of domains, which is stable by (suitable) exponentiation is presented. The goal was originally to generalize J.Y. Girard's (1986) model of polymorphism to Fω. If this notion is specialized to the poset case, a novel Cartesian closed category of domains is obtained
