Fourth Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 1989)

Paper: Computational lambda-calculus and monads (at LICS 1989)

Winner of the Test-of-Time Award in 2009
Authors: Eugenio Moggi

Abstract

The λ-calculus is considered a useful mathematical tool in the study of programming languages. However, if one uses βη-conversion to prove equivalence of programs, then a gross simplification is introduced. The author gives a calculus based on a categorical semantics for computations, which provides a correct basis for proving equivalence of programs, independent from any specific computational model
