Paper: New foundations for the geometry of interaction (at LICS 1992)

Authors: Abramsky, S. Jagadeesan, R.


A new formal embodiment of J.-Y. Girard's (1989) geometry of interaction program is given. The geometry of interaction interpretation considered is defined, and the computational interpretation is sketched in terms of dataflow nets. Some examples that illustrate the key ideas underlying the interpretation are given. The results, which include the semantic analogue of cut-elimination, stated in terms of a finite convergence property, are outlined
