Authors: Martin Hofmann


We propose a linear type system with recursion operators for inductive datatypes which ensures that all definable functions are polynomial time computable. The system improves upon previous such systems in that recursive definitions can be arbitrarily nested, in particular no predicativity or modality restrictions are made.
