This is the first part of a two-part series. Part 2 is on Wed 4th Feb.

Call-by-push-value is a calculus for computational effects that provides fine-grain primitives into which both call-by-value and call-by-name calculi can be decomposed. This decomposition appears in a wide variety of semantics: operational, domains, state, continuations, games, possible worlds, etc.

We first look at semantics of call-by-value and call-by-name, using algebras for a monad, and see how that leads us to call-by-push-value.

We then look at two examples of call-by-push-value semantics that do not use algebras: state (global ground) and continuations.

This talk is part of the Mini Courses in Theoretical Computer Science series.
