Paper: Continuation models are universal for lambda-mu-calculus (at LICS 1997)

Authors: Martin Hofmann Thomas Streicher

Abstract

We show that a certain simple call-by-name continuation semantics of Parigot's lambda-mu-calculus is complete. More precisely, for every lambda-mu-theory we construct a cartesian closed category such that the ensuing continuation-style interpretation of lambda-mu, which maps terms to functions sending abstract continuations to responses, is full and faithful. Thus, any lambda-mu-category in the sense of is isomorphic to a continuation model derived from a cartesian-closed category of continuations.
