Third Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 1988)

Invited Talk: Semantical paradigms: notes for an invited lecture (at LICS 1988)

Authors: Albert R. Meyer Stavros S. Cosmadakis


To help understand the reason for continuity in denotational semantics, the author offers some global comments on goodness-to-fit criteria between semantic domains and symbolic evaluators. The appendices provide the key parts of a proof that Scott domains give a computationally adequate and fully abstract semantics for lambda calculus with simple recursive types
