Paper: Polarized games (at LICS 2002)

Authors: Olivier LAURENT


We generalize the intuitionistic Hyland-Ong games to a notion of polarized games allowing games with plays starting by proponent moves. The usual constructions on games are adjusted to fit this setting yielding a game model for polarized linear logic with a definability result. As a consequence this gives a complete game model for various classical systems: LC, lambda-mu calculus, ... for both call-by-name and call-by-value evaluations.
