Title:GFOL: A Term-Generic Logic for Defining Lambda-Calculi
Author(s):Popescu, Andrei; Rosu, Grigore
Subject(s):computer science
Abstract:Generic first-order logic (GFOL) is a first-order logic parameterized with terms defined axiomatically (rather than constructively), by requiring them to only provide generic notions of free variable and substitution satisfying reasonable properties. GFOL has a complete Gentzen system generalizing that of FOL. An important fragment of GFOL, called Horn^2, possesses a much simpler Gentzen system, similar to traditional context-based derivation systems of lambda-calculi. Horn^2 appears to be sufficient for defining virtually any lambda-calculi (including polymorphic and type-recursive ones) as theories inside the logic. GFOL endows its theories with a default loose semantics, complete for the specified calculi.
