Paper: Games and Full Abstraction for FPC (at LICS 1996)

Authors: Guy McCusker


We present a new category of games, G, and build from it a cartesian closed category I and its extensional quotient E. E represents an improvement over existing categories of games in that it has sums as well as products, function spaces and recursive types. A model of the language FPC, a sequential functional language with just this type structure, in E is described and shown to be fully abstract.
