【BAYES COFFEE HOUSE TECH TALK SERIES】Parameterized algebraic theories and applications

Cristina Matache from the University of Edinburgh will give a talk, in person and online, for the Coffee House Tech Talk Series. Details of the talk are below.

Title: Parameterized algebraic theories and applications

Speaker: Cristina Matache

Postdoc at the University of Edinburgh

When: 11am Tue 5 March

Where: 4th floor Bayes Centre


Meeting ID:98501554



The framework of algebraic theories has proved successful for reasoning equationally about impure computation, such as state, nondeterminism, probabilistic choice. In this talk, I will review parameterized algebraic theories, an extension of algebraic theories that allows for binding. I will show how parameterized theories can be used to give an equational account of scoped effects, a class of effects that does not fit into the plain algebraic framework. Finally, I will sketch work in progress about axiomatizing dynamic creation of threads using parameterized theories.

Cristina is a postdoc at the University of Edinburgh working with Sam Lindley on the Effect Handler Oriented Programming project. Her interests include semantics of programming languages, types, categories. For Cristina’s PhD thesis, she worked on models of programming languages built using logical relations and sheaves.
