Paper: Full Abstraction and Universality via Realisability (at LICS 1999)

Authors: Michael Marz Alexander Rohr Thomas Streicher


We construct fully abstract realisability models of PCF. In particular, we prove a variant of the Longley-Phoa Conjecture by showing that the realisability model over an untyped lambda-calculus with arithmetic is fully abstract for PCF. Further we consider the extension of our results to a general sequential functional programming language SFPL giving rise to universal realisability models for SFPL.
