SUMMARY:String diagrams and the algebra of entanglement - Amar Hadzihasano

DESCRIPTION:The GHZ and W states are two entangled quantum states of three
qubits\, that are inequivalent in the sense that one cannot be turned int
o the other by local (single-qubit) operations\; this is reflected in thei
r different communicational properties and use in cryptographic protocols.
A few years ago\, Coecke and Kissinger showed that one can associate\, to
the two states\, two Frobenius algebras in the category of Hilbert spaces
- a type of algebra with a well-understood string diagram representation\
, which could hopefully provide a bridge between algebraic\, computational
and topological aspects of quantum entanglement. We present a complete gr
aphical axiomatisation of the relations between the GHZ and W states/algeb
ras: the ZW calculus. This calculus refines the pre-existing ZX calculus\,
while keeping its most desirable characteristics\, such as the undirected
ness of diagrams\; comes with an explicit normalisation procedure\; provid
es an original decomposition of the category of qubits\, with a prominent
"fermionic" fragment\; and hints at a topological explanation of its compo
nents and axioms.

DESCRIPTION:The purpose of this talk is to explain a new approach to compl
exity theory based on (dynamic) semantics of linear logic\, whose aim is t
o enable techniques and invariants from ergodic theory (e.g. l^2-Betti num
bers of a countable Borel equivalence relation) to be used in computationa
l complexity.\n\nThe origins of the techniques can be traced to Girard's
“geometry of interaction” (GoI) program using von Neumann algebras and
the recent GoI-inspired results in complexity. However\, this approach re
aches its full strength when using the more combinatorial setting of Inter
action Graphs models of (fragments of) linear logic. Using techniques akin
to game semantics (with a bit of measure theory)\, we are able to charact
erise (predicate) complexity classes as the set of programs/proofs interpr
etations of type Pred[m] := Nat => Bool. These models are parametrised by
a group of measure-preserving maps m (equivalently\, by a measurable group
action) and provide the first sketches of a conjectured correspondence be
tween measurable group actions and complexity constraints.

SUMMARY:Preciseness of Subtyping on Intersection and Union Types - Silvia

DESCRIPTION:The notion of subtyping has gained an important role both in t
heoretical and applicative domains: in lambda and concurrent calculi as we
ll as in programming languages. The soundness and the completeness\, toget
her referred to as the preciseness of subtyping\, can be considered from t
wo different points of view: denotational and operational. The former prec
iseness is based on the denotation of a type which is a mathematical objec
t that describes the meaning of the type in accordance with the denotation
s of other expressions from the language. The latter preciseness has been
recently developed with respect to type safety\, i.e. the safe replacement
of a term of a smaller type when a term of a bigger type is expected.\n\n
We propose a technique for formalising and proving operational preciseness
of the subtyping relation in the setting of a concurrent lambda calculus
with intersection and union types. The key feature is the link between typ
ings and the operational semantics. We prove then sound- ness and complete
ness getting that the subtyping relation of this calculus enjoys both deno
tational and operational preciseness. \n\nThis is a joint work with Marian
giola Dezani-Ciancaglini.

DESCRIPTION:We introduce a linear infinitary lambda-calculus in which two
exponential modalities are available\, the first one being the usual\, fin
itary one\, the other being the only construct interpreted coinductively.
The obtained calculus embeds the infinitary applicative lambda-calculus an
d is universal for computations over infinite strings. What is particularl
y interesting about the calculus is that the refinement induced by linear
logic allows to restrict both modalities so as to get calculi which are te
rminating inductively and productive coinductively. We exemplify this idea
by isolating a fragment of the calculus around the principles of SLL and
4LL. Interestingly\, it enjoys confluence\, contrarily to what happens in
ordinary infinitary lambda-calculi.

DESCRIPTION:The process of inverting Markov kernels relates to the importa
nt subject of Bayesian modelling and learning. In fact\, Bayesian update i
s exactly kernel inversion. We investigate how and when Markov kernels
(aka stochastic relations\, or probabilistic mappings) can be inverted. We
address the question both directly on the category of measurable spaces\,
and indirectly by interpreting kernels as Markov operators:\nFor the dire
ct option\, we introduce a typed version of the category of Markov kernels
and use the so-called ‘disintegration of measures’. Here\, one has to
specialise to measurable spaces borne from a simple class of topological
spaces -e.g. Polish spaces (other choices are possible). Our method and re
sult greatly simplify a recent development by Culbertson and Sturz.\nFo
r the operator option\, we use a cone version of the category of Markov op
erators (aka kernels seen as predicate transformers). That is to say
\, our linear operators are not just continuous\, but are required to sati
sfy the stronger condition of being ω-chain-continuous. Prior work
shows that one obtains an adjunction in the form of a pair of contravarian
t and inverse functors between the categories of L1- and L∞-cones. Inver
sion\, seen through the operator prism\, is just adjunction. No topo
logical assumption is needed.\nWe show that both c
ategories (Markov kernels and ω-chain-continuous
Markov operators) are related by a family of contravariant functors Tp for
1 ≤ p ≤ ∞. The Tp’s are Kleisli extensions of (duals of) conditio
nal expectation functors introduced before.\nWe prove that
both notions of inversion agree when both defined: if
f is a kernel\, and f† its direct inverse\, then T∞(f)† = T1(f†).

DESCRIPTION:We study the theory of contextual equivalence in the untyped\n
lambda-calculus\, generated by taking the normal forms as observables.\nIn
troduced by Morris in 1968\, this is the original extensional lambda\ntheo
ry H+ of observational equivalence. On the syntactic side\, we show\nthat
this lambda-theory validates the omega-rule\, thus settling a\nlong-standi
ng open problem. On the semantic side\, we provide\nsufficient and necessa
ry conditions for relational graph models to be\nfully abstract for H+. We
show that a relational graph model captures\nMorris's observational pre-o
rder exactly when it is extensional and\nlambda-König. Intuitively\, a mo
del is lambda-König when every\nlambda-definable tree has an infinite pat
h which is witnessed by some\nelement of the model.

DESCRIPTION:We introduce a fully-abstract intensional model for a polymorp
hic call-by-value language with higher-order references.\nAs in game seman
tics\, the denotation of a term is represented as a set of plays between t
he term and its environment. But rather than building it compositionally\,
by induction over the term\, we generate it using a labelled transition s
ystem representing all the possible interactions between the term and any
environment.\nNames\, and more generally the theory of nominal sets\, are
crucially used to represent locations (i.e. memory addresses) and function
al and polymorphic values. Freshness of such names then control the observ
ational power of environments.\nThanks to the presence of references\, the
observational power of environments is strong enough to avoid the need of
performing a quotient of the model to be fully abstract. This gives us ne
w principles to reason on effectul and polymorphic programs.\nThis work ha
s been done in collaboration with Nikos Tzevelekos (QMUL).

DESCRIPTION:Dynamic programming is about exploiting sharing opportunities
in\nrecursive call trees of a function. If the pattern of sharing\nopportu
nities is known statically\, a call dag can be built instead of\na tree fr
om the start.\n\nIn this talk\, we present a generic framework for doing s
o and\ndemonstrate it in action on two textbook examples of dynamic\nprogr
amming - Fibonacci and edit distance. We describe sharing\nopportunity pat
terns with systems of equations between node\naddresses. A technique from
term rewriting systems\, namely\nKnuth-Bendix completion\, gives us unique
normal forms for node\naddresses. A dag is represented as a spanning tree
whose nodes are\ndefined by addresses in normal form. Mathematically\, th
e function\ntaking an input for our function of interest into a call tree
is a\ncomonad coalgebra\, node addresses are coterms and equations are\nco
equations.\n\nA Haskell implementation of this framework uses circular pro
gramming\nand a generic implementation of derivatives of functors.\n\nWe v
iew this work as a showcase of how basic algorithmics and more\nadvanced c
ategory theory can interact in a mutually beneficial way.\n\nThis joint wo

the algebraic aspects of the\ntheory of abstract syntax of [2\,3] and the
theory of opetopes of [5]. This\nrealization conceptually allows one to

DESCRIPTION:In functional programs\, also called higher-order programs\, f
unctions may take functions themselves as arguments. As a result\, their m
odel-checking relies in most approaches on semantic or type-theoretic tool
s. In this talk\, I will explain how an analysis based on linear logic of
a model-checking result of 2009 by Kobayashi and Ong led Melliès and I to
the construction of a model for model-checking. This model is such that\,
when interpreting a term with recursion representing the tree of traces o
f a functional program\, its denotation determines whether it satisfies a
MSO property of interest. A related and similar model was obtained indepen
dently by Salvati and Walukiewicz.\nIn the second part of the talk\, I wil
l discuss the verification of termination for functional programs with rec
ursion and probabilistic choice. Dal Lago and I defined recently a type sy
stem which is such that typable programs terminate with probability 1. In
other terms\, their set of diverging executions is negligible. If time all
ows\, I will sketch ideas towards an extension of the model-checking resul
ts of the deterministic case to quantitative logics and functional program
s with recursion.

DESCRIPTION:A very natural notion of equivalence of programs is the observ
ational equivalence: two programs are equivalent if they have the same beh
aviour in any environment. More specifically in the lambda-calculus two te
rms M and N are equivalent if for every context C\, the terms C[M] and C[N
] are either both solvable or both unsolvable. Respecting this equivalence
is an important property of some models of the lambda-calculus\, called t
he full abstraction. It is well known that the model of infinitely extensi
onal Böhm trees is fully abstract. The question we are interested in is w
hat becomes of these notions when we introduce probabilistic choice in the
calculus.\n\nThe solvability has a natural extension\, which is the conve
rgence probability\, hence two terms are observationally equivalent if the
y have the same convergence probability under any context. There is also a
simple way to define probabilistic Bohm trees\, as we can associate to an
y term a subprobability distribution over head normal forms. But it is not
obvious that these generalizations of the deterministic notions are still
equivalent. In this talk we will show how to prove that probabilistic Bö
hm trees actually form a model\, and how to get a separability result to e
nsure this model is fully abstract.

DESCRIPTION:The main purpose of this talk is to introduce a new automata\n
model\, hybrid set-vector automata\, that naturally embed deterministic\nf
inite state automata and finite automata weighted over a field.\n\nWe take
a category-theoretic approach\, which provides a neat\nunderstanding of m
inimisation. It is well known that category theory\noffers a unifying view
of some automata theory results. For example\,\nminimisation of determini
stic automata (over finite words) and\nShützenberger’s automata weighte
d over fields\, arise from the same\ncategorical reasons.\n\nIn the first
part of the talk\, I will discuss about how to model and\nminimise automat
a in categories. Traditionally\, automata are seen\neither as algebras for
a functor plus a final map\, possibly in a\nmonoidal category\, or as coa
lgebras for a functor plus an initial\nmap. We propose yet another view of
automata as functors from an input\ncategory to an output category.\n\nTh
e new hybrid set-vector automata can be modelled by taking the\noutput cat
egory to be a free-colimit completion of the category of\nfinite-dimension
al vector spaces under a certain class of colimits.\n\nThis is joint work

DESCRIPTION:Gradual typing is an approach for designing programming langua
ges that\nintegrate static and dynamic type checking. Gradual typing gives
the\nprogrammer fine-grained control over which regions of a program are\
nstatically checked and which regions are dynamically checked. Over\nthe
last decade\, there has been renewed interest in such an\nintegration part
ly due to the rise in popularity of dynamic languages.\nBut as small progr
ams grow into large programs\, so does the need for\nearly error detection
and modularity\, which is provided by static type\nchecking. Gradual typ
ing provides a practical migration path for\ndynamically typed programs to
become more statically typed. This talk\nwill give a glimpse at the stat
e of the art in gradual typing. It will\ndescribe a) the major challenges
in the design and implementation of\ngradually typed languages\, b) the re
search that has addressed many of\nof these challenges\, and c) the open p
roblems that need to be solved.\nThe research in gradual typing spans both
theoretical and practical\nquestions\, from mechanized metatheory to effi
cient compilation.

DESCRIPTION:There are two possible computational interpretations of second
-order\narithmetic: Girard's system F or Spector's bar recursion and its\n
variants. While the logic is the same\, the programs obtained from these\n
two interpretations have a fundamentally different computational\nbehavior
and their relationship is not well understood. We make a step\ntowards a
comparison by defining the first translation of system F into\na simply-ty
ped total language with a variant of bar recursion. This\ntranslation reli
es on a realizability interpretation of second-order\narithmetic. Due to G
ödel's incompleteness theorem there is no proof of\ntermination of system
F within second-order arithmetic. However\, for\neach individual term of
system F there is a proof in second-order\narithmetic that it terminates\,
with its realizability interpretation\nproviding a bound on the number of
reduction steps to reach a normal\nform. Using this bound\, we compute th
e normal form through primitive\nrecursion. Moreover\, since the normaliza
tion proof of system F proceeds\nby induction on typing derivations\, the
translation is compositional.\nThe flexibility of our method opens the pos
sibility of getting a more\ndirect translation that will provide an altern
ative approach to the\nstudy of polymorphism\, namely through bar recursio
n.

DESCRIPTION:In higher-order model-checking (HOMC)\, functional programs ar
e represented as higher-order recursion schemes (HORS)\, a kind of grammar
with parameters which can be functions. These grammars generate infinite
trees\, over which we want to check formulas of monadic second-order logic
(MSO). This problem is decidable\, as proved first by Ong in 2006\, and t
hen by many others including Kobayashi and Ong (2009) whose approach use i
ntersection types. It turns out that linear logic is a powerful and enligh
tening tool to reason about HOMC\, as shown by Grellois and Melliès in th
e last years.\n\nIn general\, the complexity of the HOMC problem is n-EXPT
IME\, where n is the order of the HORS of interest. In this talk\, we expl
ain that we can refine this complexity measure: motivated by linear logic\
, we introduce *linear* HORS and a linear-nonlinear model of automaton che
cking fragments of MSO. We then show that HOMC is in fact n-EXPTIME comple
te for n the *linear* order of the linear HORS generating the tree of inte
rest. We believe that this explains why HOMC\, in spite of its huge theore
tical complexity\, has been successfully used in practice by Kobayashi's t
eam.\n\nThis linear framework allows to reprove in a much simpler way thre
e existing results extending the usual HOMC problem\, and notably to deal
with call-by-value programs in a smooth way (the usual HOMC approach consi
dering call-by-name).\n\nThis is joint work with Pierre Clairambault and A
ndrzej Murawski.

hile researchers have developed various techniques for verifying such prop
erties for standard\, deterministic programs\, relational properties for p
robabilistic programs have been more challenging. In this talk\, I will su
rvey recent developments targeting a range of probabilistic relational pro
perties\, with motivations from privacy\, cryptography\, machine learning.
The key idea is to meld relational program logics with an idea from proba
bility theory\, called a probabilistic coupling. The logics allow a highly
compositional and surprisingly general style of analysis\, supporting cle
an proofs for a broad array of probabilistic relational properties.\n\nBio

We present a general method\, based\non the notion of 2-simulation\, for p

DESCRIPTION:The causal structure of spacetime defines a (pair of) natural
order\nstructures on the underlying set of events. Much of the analysis o
f cauasl\nstructure involves a delicate interplay between order\, topology
and\ngeometry. In view of the fundamental role of the causal order in ce
rtain\napproaches to quantum gravity as well as its fundamental role in\nc
oncurrency theory one can ask whether the topology can be derived from\npu
re order theoretic considerations.\n\nIn a remarkable example of serendipi
ty\, order theory has been developed by\ncomputer scientists and mathemati
cians in order to capture computability\nconcepts. Dana Scott developed a
notion of a continuous lattice or\ncontinuous poset with a view to captur
ing computability as continuity with\na suitable topology that has come to
be known as the Scott topology. This\nsubject has acquired the name of `
`domain theory.''\n\nWe applied domain theory to the problem of reconstruc
ting the spacetime\ntopology from the order and came up with a number of r
esults about\nreconstruction of spacetime structure from just a countable
dense set. \n\nWe prove that a globally hyperbolic spacetime with its cau
sality relation\nis a bicontinuous poset whose interval topology is the ma
nifold topology.\nFrom this one can show that from only a countable dense
set of events and\nthe causality relation\, it is possible to reconstruct
a globally hyperbolic\nspacetime in a purely order theoretic manner. The
ultimate reason for this\nis that globally hyperbolic spacetimes belong to
a category that is\nequivalent to a special category of domains called in
terval domains.\n\nThis was joint work with Keye Martin of Naval Research

DESCRIPTION:No one is without knowing the famous Shadok principle « the m
ore it\nfails\, the more likely it will eventually succeed. » Taking insp
iration\nfrom this unfathomable wisdom\, we came up with a dependent type
theory\nwhich allows failure\, so that we could succeed more in proving th
ings.\nSuch a Shadok theory is justified by translating it away into vanil
la\ndependent theory\, just as a mundane compiler would\, where failing ca
n be\ninterpreted as a call-by-name exception mechanism. En passant\, this
\ngives the first full syntactical model of the Calculus of Inductive\nCon
structions introducing effects.\n\nAlas! The right to fail succeeds a tad
too much\, insofar as the\nresulting Shadock type theory is logically inco
nsistent. Not being\nimpressed in any way\, we put order into this madness
by requiring that\nno exception should ever reach toplevel\, thanks to a
clever use of a\nvariant of Bernardy-Lasson syntactic parametricity. While
the former\nmodel can be thought of as Friedman A-translation applied to
CIC\, the\nlatter is no more than a principled variant of Kreisel's modifi
ed\nrealizability that scales to dependent types. In particular\, it readi
ly\ngives a model of CIC that still has canonicity\, strong normalization
and\ndecidable type-checking\, while featuring new principles typical of\n
modified realizability such as the independence of premises and\nunprovabi
lity of Markov's principle.\n\nhttps://www.pédrot.fr/articles/exceptional

ng\nthat a program realizes a specification is done via a combination of\n
automatic techniques in a Curry-Howard fashion\, and manual proofs of\ncor
rectness of subprograms with respect to some axioms. In my talk I\nwill pr
esent some realizability models where the realizability relation\nis defin

DESCRIPTION:This talk will present SyTeCi\, the first general automated to
ol to check contextual equivalence for programs written in a typed higher-
order language with references (i.e. local mutable states)\, corresponding
to a fragment of OCaml.\n\nAfter introducing the notion of contextual equ
ivalence\, we will see on some examples why it is hard to prove such equiv
alences (reentrant calls\, private states). As we will see\, such examples
can be found in many different programming languages.\n\nThen\, we will i
ntroduce SyTeCi\, a tool to automatically check such equivalences. This to
ol is based on a reduction of the problem of contextual equivalence of two
programs to the problem of reachability of "error states" in transition s
ystems of memory configurations.\n\nContextual equivalence being undecidab
le (even in a finitary setting)\, so does the non-reachability problem for
such transition systems.\nHowever\, one can apply model-checking techniqu
es (predicate abstraction\, summarization of pushdown systems) to check no
n-reachability via some approximations.\nThis allows us to prove automatic
ally many non-trivial examples of the literature\, that could only be prov
ed by hand before. We will end this talk by the presentation of a prototyp
e implementing this work.

definition is simpler than the original\, and more natural from a categori
cal point of view\, but also matches more clearly the intuition that pHDA
are Higher Dimensional Automata with some missing faces. I will then focus
on trees. Originally\, for example in transition systems\, trees are defi
ned as those systems that have a unique path property. To understand what
kind of unique path property is needed in pHDA\, I will start by looking a
t trees as colimits of paths. From this\, I will deduce that trees are exa
ctly the pHDA with the unique path property modulo a notion of homotopy\,
and without any shortcuts. This property will allow me to prove two intere
sting characterisations of trees: trees are exactly those pHDA that are th
e unfolding of another pHDA\; trees are exactly the cofibrant objects\, mu
ch as in the language of Quillen’s model structures. In particular\, thi
s last characterisation gives the premisses of a new understanding of conc

DESCRIPTION:11:00 – 12:30 Éric Tanter (Universidad de Chile & Inria
Paris) - Invited talk: Abstracting Gradual Typing: Principles and Applicat
ion to Gradual Parametricity\n\n Gradual typing enables programming lan
guages to seamlessly combine dynamic and static checking. Language researc
hers and designers have extended a wide variety of type systems to support
gradual typing. These efforts consistently demonstrate that designing a s
atisfactory gradual counterpart to a static type system is challenging\, a
nd this challenge only increases with the sophistication of the type syste
m. Gradual type system designers need more formal tools to help them conce
ptualize\, structure\, and evaluate their designs. Based on an understandi
ng of gradual types as abstractions of static types\, we have developed sy
stematic foundations for gradual typing based on abstract interpretation\,
called Abstracting Gradual Typing (AGT for short). Gradual languages desi
gned with the AGT approach satisfy\, by construction\, the established cri
teria for gradually-typed languages. In this talk\, I will give a brief in
troduction to AGT in a simply-typed setting\, and will then discuss recent
work on a gradual counterpart of System F that enforces relational parame
tricity\, even in the presence of imprecise types.\n\n14:00 – 15:00 F
lavien Breuvart (Université Paris 13) - Invited talk: Graded Types Parame
tricity : Principles and Application to Abstract Interpretation\n\n In
this talk\, we will briefly present the yet-to-start project CoGITARe\, wh
ich aims at developing further graded types expressivity and inference in
order to use them to perform abstract interpretations.\n In a second ti
me\, we give an historic on graded type systems and their expressivity. Th
en\, we will see that this expressivity is limited by a lake of dependency
/parametricity. We will thus explore two ongoing research directions that
adds two very different kind of parametricity to graded types.\n (The p
rovocative title should only be taken as a joke. Despite their apparent si
militudes\, this work and Éric Tanter's have vastly different objectives
and involved different issues and techniques. In particular\, notice that
gradual and graded types are fundamentally different.)\n\n15:30 – 16:30
Shane Mansfield (Univ. of Oxford) - Invited talk: An overview of empiri
cal models\n\n Empirical models are a way of formalising data that aris
es in physical experiments. They were first proposed by Abramsky and Brand
enburger as part of a framework to analyse fundamentally non-classical phe
nomena in quantum systems. Conveniently from a computer science perspectiv
e\, they abstract away from the mathematical baggage of quantum theory and
instead allow the key phenomena to be characterised purely as features of
empirical data. After introducing the basic framework I will discuss some
more recent results and developments\, drawing on joint work with a numbe
r of collaborators. In particular: quantum computations can simply be mode
lled as classical computations with the additional ability to interact wit
h a resource empirical model\; quantitative measures of non-classicality c
an be shown to relate directly to some basic quantum-over-classical comput
ational advantages\; and the beginnings of a category-theoretic approach t
o reasoning about empirical models have emerged.\n\n\n18:00 – 19:00 X

DESCRIPTION:In this talk I will review G4ip\, a simple calculus for\nintui
tionistic propositional logic (IPL) that provides a decision\nprocedure fo
r provability. Its basic mechanisms can be traced back to\nVorob'ev in the
50s\, and were found again by Hudelmaier (88)\, Dyckhoff\n(90)\, Paulson
(91)\, and (with a linear logic flavour)\nLincoln-Scedrov-Shankar (91). In
2015\, Claessen and Rosén presented the\nfastest decision procedure for
IPL\, based on SMT-solving techniques. We\ndescribe their algorithm and sh
ow how it can be seen as a variant of the\naforementioned calculus\, albei
t with key variations that provide\nincreased performance. Their algorithm
relies on a SAT-solver used as a\nblack box and treats intuitionistic ent
ailment as a theory. We show how\nthe recent framework of model-constructi
ng satisfiability for\nSMT-solving could further integrate intuitionistic
reasoning within the\nmain SAT-solving loop. This would constitute an intu
itionistic variant\nof the main algorithm of SAT-solvers\, where Kripke mo
dels are built\ninstead of Boolean models.

DESCRIPTION:Herbrand's theorem exposes some of the constructive content of
classical logic. In its simplest form\, it reduces the validity of a firs
t-order purely existential formula to that of a finite disjunction. More g
enerally\, it reduces first-order validity to propositional validity\, by
understanding the structure of the assignment of first-order terms to exis
tential quantifiers\, and the causal dependency between quantifiers.\n\nIn
this talk\, we show that Herbrand's theorem in its general form can be el
egantly stated and proved as a theorem in the framework of concurrent game
s\, a denotational semantics designed to faithfully represent causality an
d independence in concurrent systems. Closely related to expansion trees\,
the causal structure of concurrent strategies\, paired with annotations b
y first-order terms\, is used to specify the dependency between quantifier
s. As furthermore these strategies can be composed we are able to interpre
t classical sequent proofs\, yielding a compositional proof of Herbrand's
theorem.

DESCRIPTION:The notion of linearisation of the lambda-calculus has been ex
plored in different settings: Damas and Florido used information given by
intersection types\, to define a notion of expansion of terms in the lambd
a-calculus into linear terms\; Kfoury embedded the lambda-calculus into a
new linear calculus\, with a new notion of "linear" reduction\, and linear
ization was defined indirectly by means of a notion of contraction of expa
nded terms in the new calculus into standard lambda-terms\; Alves and Flor
ido defined a notion of linearisation from standard lambda-terms into a li
near subset\, called the weak linear lambda-calculus\, by using the notion
of computation as paths\, deriving from Lévy’s labelled lambda-calculu
s. \n\nIn this talk we will explore these previous works\, discuss their r
elation and present some open problems regarding the termination of linear
isation methods.

2$-complete\, there is a way to show that the system is complete\, i.e.\,
that any well-behaved process is typable\, although for obvious reasons in
finitely many derivations need to be considered.\n\nJoint work with Ugo Da

it typically requires the specification of an infinite\nnumber of equatio

DESCRIPTION:Taylor expansions have been introduced by Ehrhard and Regnier
as a computational interpretation of Girard's quantitative semantics. Lamb
da-terms are expanded into linear combinations of their n-linear approxima
nts\, such approximants being defined as resource lambda-terms. This const
ruction is well-suited to interpret quantitative calculi\, such as the pro
babilistic lambda-calculus: Taylor expansions are linear combinations and
the resource lambda-calculus is linear so interpreting probability distrib
utions over terms is straightforward. Yet paradoxically the proof techniqu
e used by Ehrhard and Regnier to study Taylor expansions heavily rely on t
he particular structure of the expansions of ordinary lambda terms\, and t
hey are not suited to work on a quantitative setting. In this talk we will
show how to indirectly extend their result to probabilistic Taylor expans
ions. First we will introduce explicit Taylor expansions\, which uses "ine
rt" probabilistic choices to interpret probabilistic terms while preservin
g the necessary properties to apply Ehrhard and Regnier's proof techniques
. Then we will show how to extract interesting results on probabilistic Ta
ylor expansions from these explicit Taylor expansions.

DESCRIPTION:There is no known way of giving a domain-theoretic semantics t
o higher-order probabilistic languages\, in such a way that the involved d
omains are continuous or quasi-continuous - the latter is required to do a
ny serious mathematics. We argue that the problem naturally disappears for
languages with two kinds of types\, where one kind is interpreted in a Ca
rtesian-closed category of continuous dcpos\, and the other is interpreted
in a category that is closed under the probabilistic powerdomain functor.
Such a setting is provided by Paul B. Levy's call-by-push-value paradigm.
Following this insight\, we define a call-by-push-value language\, with p
robabilistic choice sitting inside the value types\, and where conversion
from a value type to a computation type involves demonic non-determinism.
We give both a domain-theoretic semantics and an operational semantics for
the resulting language\, and we show that they are sound and adequate. Wi
th the addition of statistical termination testers and parallel if\, we sh
ow that the language is even fully abstract - and those two primitives are
required for that.

DESCRIPTION:A vast amount of individuals’ data is collected\, stored and
accessed every day. These data are valuable for scientific and medical re
search\, for decision making\, etc. However\, use or release of these data
may be restricted by concerns for the privacy of the individuals contribu
ting them.\nDifferential Privacy has been conceived to offer ways to answe
r statistical queries about sensitive data while providing strong provable
privacy guarantees ensuring that the presence or absence of a single indi
vidual in the data has a negligible statistical effect on the query's resu
lt. \nIn this talk I will introduce differential privacy and present some
formal verification techniques we developed to help programmers to certify
their programs differentially private and to guarantee that their program
s provide accurate answers. These techniques combine approaches based on t
ype systems and program logics with ideas for reasoning about differential
privacy using composition\, sensitivity and probabilistic coupling. This
combination permits fine-grained formal analyses of several basic mechanis
ms that are fundamental for designing practical differential privacy appli
cations. In addition\, I will present some of our results showing how to a
nswer a large number of queries on high dimensional datasets preserving pr
ivacy\, and how to perform differentially private chi-squared hypothesis t
esting with the same asymptotic guarantees as the traditional tests.

DESCRIPTION:In this talk\, I will explain the fundamental ideas of stochas
tic mechanics which led me to investigate the dynamics of graph-like struc
tures\, using a new perspective on rewriting systems. My talk is designed
to be accessible to a wide audience\, and I will thus illustrate my approa
ch on a very simple voter model\, expressed in the language of stochastic
rewriting. The discussion of this elementary example will clarify the reas
ons why I am currently working on a general theory of tracelets\, mixing i
deas from rewriting theory\, category theory and concurrency theory\, in o
rder to extend the traditional realm of stochastic mechanics\, and to impl
ement analysis tools for sophisticated and currently intractable stochasti
c phenomena on graph-like structures.

DESCRIPTION:On introduit les systèmes de réécriture topologiques comme
généralisation des systèmes de réécriture abstraits\, où l'on consid
ère un espace topologique au lieu d'un ensemble de termes. Les systèmes
de réécriture abstraits sont les systèmes de réécriture topologiques
pour la topologie discrète. On introduit la confluence topologique comme
étant une propriété de confluence par passage à la limite\, et on cara
ctérise les bases standards par cette propriété. On caractérise égale
ment la confluence topologique par des opérations de treillis grâce à u
ne représentation des systèmes de réécriture par des opérateurs de r
éduction continus. Enfin\, on relie les représentations des séries form
elles non commutatives à la dualité des opérateurs de réduction\, et o
n déduit un critère pour qu'une algèbre soit syntaxique.

DESCRIPTION:The speculative ambition of replacing the old theory of progra
m approximation based on syntactic continuity with the theory of resource
consumption based on Taylor expansion and originating from the differentia
l lambda-calculus is nowadays at hand. Using this resource sensitive theor
y\, we provide simple proofs of important results in lambda-calculus that
are usually demonstrated by\nexploiting Scott's continuity\, Berry's stabi
lity or Kahn and Plotkin's\nsequentiality theory.\n\nA paradigmatic exampl
e is given by the Perpendicular Lines Lemma for\nthe Böhm tree semantics\
, which is proved here simply by induction\, but\nrelying on the main prop
erties of resource approximants: strong\nnormalization\, confluence and li
nearity.

DESCRIPTION:We study trace-based equivalences for labelled transition syst
ems combining nondeterministic and probabilistic choices. We do so via a c
oalgebraic construction known as the generalized powerset construction\, w
hich consists in first determinizing a system and then recovering trace eq
uivalence as bisimulation equivalence on the determinized system. The gene
ralized powerset construction allows us to apply these two steps\, inspire
d by the standard powerset construction for nondeterministic automata\, to
a variety of systems\, such as labelled transition systems with different
computational effects captured by monads (e.g.\, systems with probabilist
ic choices). We show how trace semantics for labelled transition systems c
ombining nondeterministic and probabilistic choices can be recovered by in
stantiating the generalized powerset construction\, and we characterise an
d compare the resulting semantics to known definitions of trace equivalenc
es appearing in the literature. Most of our results are based on the excit
ing interplay between monads and their presentations via algebraic theorie

DESCRIPTION:Systems programming often requires the manipulation of resourc
es like file handles\, network connections\, or dynamically allocated memo
ry. Programmers need to follow certain protocols to handle these resources
correctly. Violating these protocols causes bugs ranging from type mismat
ches over data races to use-after-free errors and memory leaks. These bugs
often lead to security vulnerabilities.\n\nWhile statically typed program
ming languages guarantee type soundness and memory safety by design\, most
of them do not address issues arising from improper resource handling. Li
near and affine types guarantee single-threaded resource usage\, but they
are rarely deployed as they are too restrictive for real-world application
s.\n\nWe present Affe\, an extension of ML with constrained types that man
ages linearity and affinity properties through kinds. In addition Affe sup
ports the exclusive and unrestricted borrowing of affine resources\, inspi
red by features of Rust. Moreover\, Affe retains the defining features of
the ML family: an impure\, strict functional expression language with comp
lete principal type inference and type abstraction through modules. Our la
nguage does not require any linearity annotations in expressions and suppo
rts common functional programming idioms.\n\nDraft: https://arxiv.org/abs/

SUMMARY:Model completeness in logical algebra - Sam Van Gool

DESCRIPTION:Very short abstract:\nWhat is an existentially closed Heyting
algebra and what does it have to\ndo with automata theory?\n\nSlightly lon
ger abstract:\nLogical systems of deduction often resemble algebraic syste
ms of\nequation resolution. The simplest instance of this resemblance is t
he\nfact that classical propositional logic essentially boils down to\nstu
dying algebras over the two-element field. When one changes the\nlogical d
eduction system\, the algebraic structures become less simple\,\nand more
interesting\; this is where one enters the world of Heyting\nalgebras\, mo
dal algebras\, and generalizations of such.\n\nThe aim of our work here is
to gain a better understanding of such\nlogical-algebraic structures by s
tudying them from the perspective of\nmodel theory. In the model-theoretic
study of usual algebra\, the concept\nof model completeness plays a centr
al role: it provides the correct\nabstraction of the concept of an algebra
ically closed field. We show\nthat model completeness also has an importan
t role to play in logical\nalgebra.\n\nIn particular\, we will discuss two
cases of model completeness:\nintuitionistic logic\, and linear temporal
logic. In the former\, model\ncompleteness can be seen to be closely relat
ed to a certain\ninterpolation property of the logic\, originally establis
hed by Pitts. In\nthe latter\, automata on infinite words are the technica
l ingredient that\nleads to model completeness.
