A Finite Equational Axiomatization of the Functional Algebras for the Lambda Calculus

Antonino Salibra, Robert Goldblatt
1999 Information and Computation  
In the main result of this paper it is shown that the equations (between contexts) valid in every lambda theory have an explicit finite equational axiomatization.  ...  A lambda theory satisfies an equation between contexts, where a context is a *-term with some"holes" in it, if all the instances of the equation fall within the lambda theory.  ...  So, the explicit finite equational axiomatization for the variety of LAA's provides also an explicit axiomatization of the equations between contexts valid in every lambda theory.  ...

Implications of positive formulas in modules (RIMS) [article]

Philipp Rothmaler
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this survey the role of implications of positive formulas -- finitary and infinitary -- is dicussed, in general and in module categories, where they seem of particular importance.  ...  A list of algebraic examples is given, some old, some rather new, and properties are derived from the particular shape of implications involved.  ...  As atomic formulas are simply linear equations in this context, positive primitive formulas are existentially quantified finite systems of (homogeneous!) linear equations.  ...

Unification theory

Jörg H. Siekmann
1989 Journal of symbolic computation  
Unification theory provides the formal framework for investigations into the properties of this operation.  ...  This operation, called unification in work on deduction, is the "addition-and-multiplication" of AI-systems and is consequently often supported by special purpose hardware or by a fast instruction set  ...  Usually we say "theory E" and mean the equational theory T(E) axiomatized by E. Obviously the axiomatization for an equational theory is not unique.  ...

Infinitary Action Logic: Complexity, Models and Grammars

Wojciech Buszkowski, Ewa Palka
2008 Studia Logica: An International Journal for Symbolic Logic  
Here we prove a stronger form of *-elimination for the logic of *-continuous action lattices and the Π 0 1 −completeness of the equational theories of action lattices of subsets of a finite monoid and  ...  Action logic of Pratt [21] can be presented as Full Lambek Calculus FL [14, 17] enriched with Kleene star *; it is equivalent to the equational theory of residuated Kleene algebras (lattices).  ...  The equational theory of algebras of regular languages is Π 0 1 −complete. The equational theory of algebras of languages is not in Σ 0 1 ∪ Π 0 1 .  ...

We must know – We shall know [article]

Jacob Zimbarg Sobrinho
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this manner, after developing the initial steps of this change, I can hint that the solution goes in the direction of the coincidence of both classes, i.e., P=NP.  ...  In this article, I focus on the resiliency of the P=?NP problem. The main point to deal with is the change of the underlying logic from first to second-order logic.  ...  The concept of free and bound occurrences of variables can be carried through straightforwardly to the new context as well as the substitution of variables, free or bound, without collisions.  ...

The theory of LLAs can be regarded as axiomatizing the equations that hold between the contexts of the lambda calculus, as opposed to lambda terms with free variables.  ...  The genericity lemma of finitary lambda-calculus is generalized to the infinitary lambda-calculus. The consistency of the infinitary lambda-calculus is shown by algebraic means.  ...

Proof systems for structured algebraic specifications: An overview [chapter]

Rolf Hennicker, Martin Wirsing
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As underlying language we choose an ASL-like kernel language which includes reachability and observability operators. Three different kinds of proof systems are studied.  ...  The drawback of the non-compositional proof systems is that they do not reflect the modular structure of specifications.  ...  to the use of infinitary axiomatizations of the observational equality.  ...

Wojciech Buszkowski
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also show that the equational theory of action algebras (lattices) of regular languages is Π 0 1 −complete.  ...  In [9] it is shown that the equational theory of *-continuous action algebras (lattices) is Π 0 1 −complete.  ...  Consequently, in the language with residuals, one obtains a finite, equational axiomatization of the algebra of regular expressions.  ...

Remarks on Barr's theorem: Proofs in geometric theories [article]

Michael Rathjen

On classes of structures axiomatizable by universal d-Horn sentences and universal positive disjunctions

Guillermo Badia, João Marcos
2018 Algebra Universalis  
The classical example of this kind of characterization result is the HSP theorem, but there are myriad other examples (e.g., the characterization of elementary classes using isomorphic images, ultraproducts  ...  These include, in particular, the classes of fields, of non-trivial rings, and of directed graphs without loops where every two elements are adjacent.  ...  An early incarnation of this paper was presented at the 94th Workshop on General Algebra (AAA94) in Novi Sad, Serbia, in June 2017. We are indebted to the audience there for their comments.  ...
