Paper: Linear logic, totality and full completeness (at LICS 1994)

Authors: Ralph Loader


I give a `totality space' model for linear logic [4] derived by taking an abstract view of computations on a datatype. The model has similarities with both the coherence space model and game-theoretic models, but is based upon a notion of total object. Using this model, I prove a full completeness result. In other words, I show that the mapping of proofs to their interpretations (here collections of total objects uniform for a given functor) in the model is a surjection
