Paper: A Congruence Theorem for Structured Operational Semantics of Higher-Order Languages (at LICS 1998)

Authors: Karen L. Bernstein

Abstract

In this paper we describe the promoted tyft/tyxt rule format for defining higher-order languages. The rule format is a generalization of Groote and Vaandrager's tyft/tyxt format in which terms are allowed as labels on transitions in rules. We prove that bisimulation is a congruence for any language defined in promoted tyft/tyxt format and demonstrate the usefulness of the rule format by presenting promoted tyft/tyxt definitions for the lazy \lambda-calculus, CHOCS and the ?-calculus
