Paper: Full Abstraction for First-Order Objects with Recursive Types and Subtyping (at LICS 1998)

Authors: Ramesh Viswanathan

Abstract

We present a new interpretation of typed object-oriented concepts in terms of well-understood, purely procedural concepts, that preserves observational equivalence. More precisely, we give compositional translations of (a) Ob, an object calculus supporting method invocation and functional method update with first-order object types and recursive types, and (b) Ob1<:μ, an extension of Ob with subtyping, that are fully abstract on closed terms. The target of the translations are a first-order λ-calculus with records and recursive types, with and without subtyping. The translation of the calculus with subtyping is subtype-preserving as well
