- Adequacy of compositional translations for observational semantics (2008)
- We investigate methods and tools for analyzing translations between programming languages with respect to observational semantics. The behavior of programs is observed in terms of may- and mustconvergence in arbitrary contexts, and adequacy of translations, i.e., the reflection of program equivalence, is taken to be the fundamental correctness condition. For compositional translations we propose a notion of convergence equivalence as a means for proving adequacy. This technique avoids explicit reasoning about contexts, and is able to deal with the subtle role of typing in implementations of language extensions.

- On correctness of buffer implementations in a concurrent lambda calculus with futures (2009)
- Motivated by the question of correctness of a specific implementation of concurrent buffers in the lambda calculus with futures underlying Alice ML, we prove that concurrent buffers and handled futures can correctly encode each other. Correctness means that our encodings preserve and reflect the observations of may- and must-convergence, and as a consequence also yields soundness of the encodings with respect to a contextually defined notion of program equivalence. While these translations encode blocking into queuing and waiting, we also describe an adequate encoding of buffers in a calculus without handles, which is more low-level and uses busy-waiting instead of blocking. Furthermore we demonstrate that our correctness concept applies to the whole compilation process from high-level to low-level concurrent languages, by translating the calculus with buffers, handled futures and data constructors into a small core language without those constructs.

Correctness means that our encodings preserve and reflect the observations of may- and must-convergence. This also shows correctness wrt. program semantics, since the encodings are adequate translations wrt. contextual semantics. While these translations encode blocking into queuing and waiting, we also provide an adequate encoding of buffers in a calculus without handles, which is more low-level and uses busy-waiting instead of blocking. Furthermore we demonstrate that our correctness concept applies to the whole compilation process from high-level to low-level concurrent languages, by translating the calculus with buffers, handled futures and data constructors into a small core language without those constructs.

- Reconstructing a logic for inductive proofs of properties of functional programs (2010)
- A logical framework consisting of a polymorphic call-by-value functional language and a first-order logic on the values is presented, which is a reconstruction of the logic of the verification system VeriFun. The reconstruction uses contextual semantics to define the logical value of equations. It equates undefinedness and non-termination, which is a standard semantical approach. The main results of this paper are: Meta-theorems about the globality of several classes of theorems in the logic, and proofs of global correctness of transformations and deduction rules. The deduction rules of VeriFun are globally correct if rules depending on termination are appropriately formulated. The reconstruction also gives hints on generalizations of the VeriFun framework: reasoning on nonterminating expressions and functions, mutual recursive functions and abstractions in the data values, and formulas with arbitrary quantifier prefix could be allowed.

- Reconstruction of a logic for inductive proofs of properties of functional programs (2010)
- The interactive verification system VeriFun is based on a polymorphic call-by-value functional language and on a first-order logic with initial model semantics w.r.t. constructors. This paper provides a reconstruction of the corresponding logic when partial functions are permitted. Typing is polymorphic for the definition of functions but monomorphic for terms in formulas. Equality of terms is defined as contextual equivalence based on observing termination in all contexts. The reconstruction also allows several generalizations of the functional language like mutual recursive functions and abstractions in the data values. The main results are: Correctness of several program transformations for all extensions of a program, which have a potential usage in a deduction system. We also proved that universally quantified equations are conservative, i.e. if a universally quantified equation is valid w.r.t. a program P, then it remains valid if the program is extended by new functions and/or new data types.

- Simulation in the call-by-need lambda-calculus with letrec, case, constructors, and seq (2013)
- This paper shows equivalence of applicative similarity and contextual approximation, and hence also of bisimilarity and contextual equivalence, in LR, the deterministic call-by-need lambda calculus with letrec extended by data constructors, case-expressions and Haskell's seqoperator. LR models an untyped version of the core language of Haskell. Bisimilarity simplifies equivalence proofs in the calculus and opens a way for more convenient correctness proofs for program transformations. The proof is by a fully abstract and surjective transfer of the contextual approximation into a call-by-name calculus, which is an extension of Abramsky's lazy lambda calculus. In the latter calculus equivalence of similarity and contextual approximation can be shown by Howe's method. Using an equivalent but inductive definition of behavioral preorder we then transfer similarity back to the calculus LR. The translation from the call-by-need letrec calculus into the extended call-by-name lambda calculus is the composition of two translations. The first translation replaces the call-by-need strategy by a call-by-name strategy and its correctness is shown by exploiting infinite tress, which emerge by unfolding the letrec expressions. The second translation encodes letrec-expressions by using multi-fixpoint combinators and its correctness is shown syntactically by comparing reductions of both calculi. A further result of this paper is an isomorphism between the mentioned calculi, and also with a call-by-need letrec calculus with a less complex definition of reduction than LR.

- On conservativity of concurrent Haskell (2012)
- The calculus CHF models Concurrent Haskell extended by concurrent, implicit futures. It is a process calculus with concurrent threads, monadic concurrent evaluation, and includes a pure functional lambda-calculus which comprises data constructors, case-expressions, letrec-expressions, and Haskell’s seq. Futures can be implemented in Concurrent Haskell using the primitive unsafeInterleaveIO, which is available in most implementations of Haskell. Our main result is conservativity of CHF, that is, all equivalences of pure functional expressions are also valid in CHF. This implies that compiler optimizations and transformations from pure Haskell remain valid in Concurrent Haskell even if it is extended by futures. We also show that this is no longer valid if Concurrent Haskell is extended by the arbitrary use of unsafeInterleaveIO.

- Reconstruction of a logic for inductive proofs of properties of functional programs (2010)
- The interactive verification system VeriFun is based on a polymorphic call-by-value functional language and on a first-order logic with initial model semantics w.r.t. constructors. It is designed to perform automatic induction proofs and can also deal with partial functions. This paper provides a reconstruction of the corresponding logic and semantics using the standard treatment of undefinedness which adapts and improves the VeriFun-logic by allowing reasoning on nonterminating expressions and functions. Equality of expressions is defined as contextual equivalence based on observing termination in all closing contexts. The reconstruction shows that several restrictions of the VeriFun framework can easily be removed, by natural generalizations: mutual recursive functions, abstractions in the data values, and formulas with arbitrary quantifier prefix can be formulated. The main results of this paper are: an extended set of deduction rules usable in VeriFun under the adapted semantics is proved to be correct, i.e. they respect the observational equivalence in all extensions of a program. We also show that certain classes of theorems are conservative under extensions, like universally quantified equations. Also other special classes of theorems are analyzed for conservativity.
