Universality and semicomputability for nondeterministic programming languages over abstract algebras

Wei Jiang, Yuan Wang, Jeffery Zucker
2007 The Journal of Logic and Algebraic Programming  
There are two topics of investigation: (1) the extent to which the UFT holds over abstract algebras in these languages; (2) concepts of semicomputability for these languages, and the extent to which they  ...  Classical computability theory, including the UFT and the theory of semicomputable sets, has been extended by Tucker and Zucker to abstract many-sorted algebras, with algorithms formalized as deterministic  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported by a grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. We thank an anonymous referee for helpful suggestions. Appendix A.  ...

Deterministic and nondeterministic computation, and horn programs, on abstract data types

J.V. Tucker, J.I. Zucker
1992 The Journal of Logic Programming  
Two characterizations are considered and shown to be equivalent: one in terms of " partial computable functions' ' (for a suitable notion of computability over abstract structures) and one in terms of  ...  definability by means of Horn programs over such structures.  ...  Derrick and M. Fairtlough (Leeds) for valuable discussions, and J.-L. Lassez for inviting us to give a detailed exposition of these results.  ...

PROJECTIONS OF SEMICOMPUTABLE RELATIONS ON ABSTRACT DATA TYPES

J.V. TUCKER, J.I. ZUCKER
1991 International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science  
We consider projections of semicomputable relations on abstract structures We show that they arise in several contexts, including nondeterministic extensions of while' programs with arrays by means of  ...  An important technique in this investigation is the study of computation trees for imperative programs, in order to prove characterization theorems for semicomputable sets, of a form rst developed by E  ...  We thank an anonymous referee for constructive suggestions.  ...

On the power of algebraic specifications [chapter]

J. A. Bergstra, M. Broy, J. V. Tucker, M. Wirsing
1981 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Finally we give an example of the specification of a simple nondeterministic programming language.  ...  For partial abstract types we prove that every computable partial algebra has an equational hidden enrichment specification and discuss the power of hierarchical partial algebras.  ...  The results for arithmetical and hyperarithmetical algebras carry over, too. Finally we consider a simple nondeterminlstlc programmlnq language.  ...

Abstract versus Concrete Computation on Metric Partial Algebras [article]

J.V. Tucker and J.I. Zucker (McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada)
2001 arXiv   pre-print
A model of computation is abstract if, when applied to any algebra, the resulting programs for computable functions and sets on that algebra are invariant under isomorphisms, and hence do not depend on  ...  We investigate the relationship between abstract and concrete models of partial metric algebras.  ...  Then we choose the ' while'-array programming language as an abstract model for computing on any data type, and extend it with a nondeterministic assignment of "countable choice".  ...

Algebraic approaches to nondeterminism---an overview

Michał Walicki, Sigurd Meldal
1997 ACM Computing Surveys  
Noncontinuity may also arise in a determinate language, for instance, in a language admitting quantification over infinite sets Broy 1983 ].  ...  In particular, the introduction of nondeterminism as a result of abstraction from time is usually taken as a given in the process algebra community without thereby necessarily accepting abstraction over  ...

From Total Equational to Partial First-Order Logic [chapter]

Maura Cerioli, Till Mossakowski, Horst Reichel
1999 Algebraic Foundations of Systems Specification  
Alternatives to partiality, like (variants of) error algebras and order-sortedness are also discussed, showing their uses and limitations.  ...  Moreover, both the total and the partial (positive) conditional fragment are investigated in detail, and in particular the existence of initial (free) models for such restricted logical paradigms is proved  ...  Note that partial recursive functions without recursive domain are needed, for instance, whenever describing the semantics of (universal) programming languages.  ...
