- Room FW26, Computer Laboratory, William Gates Building.
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Parkinson. The Curry-Howard correspondence equates propositions with types and
derivations with lambda-terms. The lambda-calculus does not
immediately provide terms to correspond to - Types correspond with first-order logic predicates.
- Terms correspond with incomplete proofs.
- Level 1 variables (atoms) correspond with assumptions; types of the variables correspond with predicates assumed.
- Level 2 variables (unknowns) correspond with unknown parts of the derivation.
- A notion of beta-reduction for level 1 variables corresponds with proof-normalisation.
- Instantiation of level 2 variables corresponds with filling in more of the derivation.
