Paper: Type reconstruction in finite-rank fragments of the polymorphic λ-calculus (at LICS 1990)

Authors: Assaf J. Kfoury Jerzy Tiuryn

Abstract

It is proven that the problem of type reconstruction in the polymorphic λ-calculus of rank two is polynomial-time equivalent to the problem of type reconstruction in ML, and is therefore DEXPTIME-complete. It is also proven that for every k>2, the problem of type reconstruction in the polymorphic λ-calculus of rank k, extended with suitably chosen constants with types of rank one, is undecidable
