  • Stratified coherent spaces: a denotational semantics for Light Linear Logic 

    Baillot, Patrick (The University of Edinburgh, 2000-08)
    Light linear logic (LLL) was introduced by Girard as a logical system capturing the class of polytime function within the proofs-as-programs approach. This paper deals with the denotational semantics of LLL: we introduce ...
