Kenta Cho (Radboud U. Nijmegen), An Effectus-Theoretic Perspective on Probabilistic Programming

 Modern probabilistic programming languages have the ability to "condition", which is an essential operation in Bayesian statistics to compute conditional (posterior, updated) probabilities given certain data. Probabilistic programming has attracted increasing attention especially for machine learning applications.

Effectuses have recently been introduced as categorical models for quantum logic and computation, with probabilistic and Boolean as special cases. Based on the concepts of states and predicates in an effectus, we formulate "conditioning" as an operation on states and predicates. It then offers a language and semantics for Bayesian probabilistic reasoning. For example, backward and forward inference can be neatly captured by the combination of conditioning and state/predicate transformers. This works uniformly, not only in the discrete and continuous probabilistic setting, but also in the quantum setting.

We are also developing a Python library implementing the effectus language based on states and predicates. It is currently not meant for large scale computation (eg. machine learning), but is useful for modelling and calculating small probabilistic problems. The talk will include the use / demo of the library.

Marc Bagnol (MMM, U-Tokyo), The Resolution Semiring (a unification-based syntax for GoI)

Geometry of Interaction can be presented using many different tools, including include circuits, automata, operator algebras... one of them is based on the theory unification: the Resolution Semiring. The main feature of this GoI model is its finite, syntactic nature. Notions such as term size, height etc. are available, which simplifies complexity-related investigations.

I will present the basic machinery at work in this structure, then show it provides indeed a traced category, hence allowing for GoI constructions. I will also discuss some complexity results one can obtain within this framework.

Sasinee Pruekprasert (Osaka U.), A game theoretical approach to supervisory control of non-terminating discrete event systems

Discrete event system (DES) is a dynamic discrete-state event-driven system where the state changes are triggered by the occurrence of events. A DES spontaneously and asynchronously generates events which are partitioned into controllable and uncontrollable ones. A supervisor is a controller that and controls the DES by disabling or enabling any of the controllable events based on the observed generated sequences. We consider the optimal control of quantitative non-terminating DESs modeled by finite weighted automata, whose behaviors are represented by the generated infinite sequences. An optimal supervisor is a supervisor that satisfies two objectives: 1) to avoid system halts and 2) to maximize the control performance, which is evaluated by the worst-case limit-average weight of the infinite sequences generated by the supervised DES. We propose a game theoretical design method for an optimal supervisor using a two-player turn-based mean-payoff game automaton. As the first player, the objective of the supervisor is to maximize the worst-case limit-average weight of the generated sequences; as the second player, the DES aims to minimize it. We can decide the existence of an optimal supervisor using an optimal strategy of the two-player game, and compute it if it exists.

Masaki Hara (MMM, U. Tokyo), Representation of non-distributive lattices

Using Birkhoff’s representation theorem, one can construct a Kripke model from a heyting algebra model of intuitionistic logic. This is convenient for refutation of propositional formulas, because Kripke models are more friendly with SAT (satisfiability) solvers. Similar representation theorem for non-distributive lattices would be useful for substructural logics like linear logic. This can be achieved by introducing two different accessibility relations to Kripke frames.

Liang-Ting Chen (Dept. of Info. and Comp. Sci., University of Hawaii), Schutzenberger Products in a Category

The Sch\"utzenberger product of monoids is a key tool for the algebraic treatment of language concatenation. In this paper we generalize the Sch\"utzenberger product to the level of monoids in an algebraic category 𝒟, leading to a uniform view of the corresponding constructions for monoids (Sch\"utzenberger), ordered monoids (Pin), idempotent semirings (Kl\'ima and Pol\'ak) and algebras over a field (Reutenauer). In addition, assuming that 𝒟 is part of a Stone-type duality, we derive a characterization of the languages recognized by Sch\"utzenberger products.

Tetsuya Sato (RIMS, Kyoto University), 差分プライバシーの圏論的特徴づけと、その検証

差分プライバシー[Dwork, ICALP 2006]は、確率的プログラムで与えられたデータベース・クエリーに関するプライバシー保護の定義/基準で、背景知識攻撃に対する安全性を数学的に保証するという特長を持ち、近年でも盛んに研究されている。

Bartheによる Approximate Relational Hoare Logic (apRHL) [Barthe et al., POPL 2012]は、クエリーの差分プライバシーを形式的に検証するための枠組みで、差分プライバシーの概念を、圏Set上の確率分布モナドのパラメトリックな二項関係持ち上げによって与えるというアイデアに基づいて構成されている。

本講演で紹介する Continuous apRHL はapRHLの測度論的拡張と呼ぶべきもので、連続分布型の確率的プログラムであるクエリーの差分プライバシーの検証を可能とする。構成はまず、クエリーの差分プライバシーを、Giryモナドのgradedな二項関係持ち上げによって特徴づけ、それらでjudgementの解釈を与え直すことでapRHLを拡張するという流れである。[Sato, MFPS 2016]  可能であれば、これからの発展などについてもお話ししたい。

Ichiro Hasuo (MMM, U. Tokyo), Coalgebras and Higher-Order Computation: a GoI Approach

(An FSCD invited talk rehearsal, one hour)

Girard's geometry of interaction (GoI) can be seen as a compositional compilation method from functional programs to sequential machines, where tokens move around and express interactions between (parts of) programs. Intrigued by the combination of abstract theory and concrete dynamics in GoI, our line of work (with Naohiko Hoshino, Koko Muroya and Toshiki Kataoka) has aimed at exploiting, in GoI, results from the theory of coalgebra---a categorical abstraction of state-based transition systems that has found its use principally in concurrency theory. Such reinforced connection between higher-order computation and state-based dynamics is made possible thanks to an elegant categorical axiomatization of GoI by Abramsky, Haghverdi and Scott, where traced monoidal categories are identified to be essential in modeling interaction. In the talk I shall lay out these preliminaries and basic ideas, together with some of our results on: GoI semantics for a quantum programming language; and extension of GoI with algebraic effects.

Nayuta Yanagisawa (Dept. Math., Kyoto U.), A Topological Characterization of Wait-Free Solvability in the Infinite Arrival Model

We extend the topological theory of distributed computing for systems with a fixed set

of n processes to that for systems with infinitely many processes. We investigate

a necessary and sufficient condition for the finitely-valued colorless tasks to be

wait-free solvable in such distributed systems. A finitely-valued colorless task is a task

that assumes a finite set of possible input/output values, and specifies input/output

relation without referring to process IDs. Our characterization only resorts to finite

combinatorial structures, called finite simplicial complexes as the topological device.

By restricting our attention to finitely-valued colorless tasks, we can represent possible

protocol states that are innocent of process IDs by a finite simplicial complex,

even if the number of participating processes is infinite.

Alexandre Rocca (Verimag),

Application of Formal Methods to Biological Systems Modelling

The modelling of complex biological systems as differential equations often results in non-linear, high-dimensional, stiff models with uncertain parameters. The validation of those models with respect to some experimental results is often done with simulations. However, these validations are not guaranteed. Formal verification techniques allow proving properties, with set-based computation techniques, by replacing the simulation runs with a conservative set of trajectories. However, biological models are challenging by their size and complex dynamics: we need automatic, and formal, model reduction methods to reduce the dimension and complexity of biological models. We are currently investigating a  reduction technique based on a separation of the different time-scales, and singular perturbation theory. After reduction, the model is smaller and less stiff and then reachability analysis can be applied more efficiently. In addition, we are working on a reachability tool (based on Bernstein polynomials) for polynomial systems with uncertain parameters, which often arise in biochemical reaction networks.

Kenta Cho (Radboud U. Nijmegen), Effectus Theory

An effectus is a category with a final object and finite coproducts

satisfying certain assumptions, which was introduced by Jacobs [1]

(the term "effectus" was later given) for the study of quantum/effect

logic and computation. Effectuses are now actively studied by Jacobs'

group in Nijmegen. Our long-term aim is to define a quantum-analogue

of a topos, which shall be called a "telos".

In this talk, I will give an overview of effectuses, and then recent

developments such as partial computations, quotients and

comprehensions in effectuses.

Kazutaka Matsuda (Kobayashi Lab., Dept. CS, U. Tokyo),

Bidirectional Programming in a More Applicative Style

A bidirectional transformation is a pair of mappings between source

and view data objects, one in each direction. When the view is

modified, the source is updated accordingly with respect to some

laws. One way to reduce the development and maintenance effort of

bidirectional transformations is to have specialized languages in

which the resulting programs are bidirectional by construction---

giving rise to the paradigm of bidirectional programming.

In this talk, we will propose a new bidirectional programming framework

in which we can write and combine bidirectional transformations in

the applicative style, with usual higher-order functions. As a result,

we can program bidirectional transformations almost as easy as usual

unidirectional programming in a usual higher-order language.

John Power (U. Bath), Coalgebraic Logic Programming: from Semantics to Implementation; embracing the laxness (joint with Ekaterina Komendantskaya), Part II

Coinductive definitions, such as that of an infinite stream, may often be described by elegant logic programs, but ones for which SLD-refutation is of no value as SLD-derivations fall into infinite loops.  Such definitions give rise to questions of lazy corecursive derivations and parallelism, as execution of such logic programs can have both recursive and corecursive features at once. Observational and coalgebraic semantics have been used to study them abstractly. However, the programming developments have often occurred separately and have usually been implementation-led.

Here, we start to give a coherent semantics-led account of the issues, proceeding from abstract category theoretic semantics and developing coalgebra to try to characterise naturally arising trees. As part of the project but not presented in this talk, the work is proceeding towards implementation of a new dialect, CoALP, of logic programming, characterised by guarded lazy corecursion and parallelism.

On a Categorical Framework for Coalgebraic Modal Logic

Two syntax-oriented approaches to coalgebraic modal logic — Moss’ cover modality and Pattinson’s predicate liftings — are successful in producing a wide range of modal logics parametric in a Set functor, including modal logics for Kripke frames, Markov chains, Markov processes, and their variants. Both of them can be presented abstractly in a form similar to mathematical SOS by Turi and Plokin, but this line of research was not well-understood yet.

In this talk I will treat the abstract formation seriously, and introduce a category of abstract semantics parametric in a contravariant functor that assigns to the state space its collection of predicates with propositional connectives. Various classical notions are formulated categorically. For example, modular constructions are identified as colimits, limits, and compositions of one-step semantics. The compositions and the colimits of (one-step) expressiveness semantics remain (one-step) expressive. In addition, we investigate a canonically-defined logic by its fibres, and show that it is a terminal object for every fibre.

By its very formulation, it is straightforward to show above results in this level of generality. In fact, I would like to suggest that it is the right level of abstraction for understanding coalgebraic modal logic. For further details, please see my MFPS paper, available in

Temporal Logic Testing and Verification for Cyber-Physical Systems

One of the important challenges in the Model Based Development (MBD) of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is the problem of verifying functional system properties. In its general form, the verification problem is undecidable due to the interplay between continuous and discrete system dynamics. In this talk, we present the bounded-time temporal logic testing and verification problem for CPS. Temporal logics can formally capture both state-space and real-time system requirements. For example, temporal logics can mathematically state requirements like "whenever the system switches to first gear, then it should not switch back to second gear within 2.5sec".  Our approach in tackling this challenging problem is to convert the verification problem into an optimization problem through a notion of robustness for temporal logics. The robust interpretation of a temporal logic specification over a CPS trajectory quantifies "how much" the system trajectory satisfies or does not satisfy the specification. In general, the resulting optimization problem is non-convex and non-linear, the utility function is not known is closed-form and the search space is uncountable. Thus, stochastic search techniques are employed in order to solve the resulting optimization problem. We have implemented our testing and verification framework into a Matlab (TM) toolbox called S-TaLiRo (System's TemporAl LogIc Robustness). In this talk, we demonstrate that S-TaLiRo can provide answers to challenge problems from the automotive and medical device industries.

This talk describes several assumptions on a category that together yield a proposal for a categorical structure for quantum logic. The assumptions and consequences describe the differences and similarities between classical, probabilistic, and quantum logic. The leading examples are the category Sets, the Kleisli category of the distribution monad, and the opposite of the category of C*-algebras and (completely) positive unital maps.

We present a principled way of designing program analysis tools within interactive proof assistants such as Coq or Isabelle; inparticular tools for the construction and verification of sequential and concurrent programs. We use algebras of programs to capture the control flow of programs and to derive Hoare-style inference rules, verification conditions, or transformation and refinement laws. We model their data flow by linking these algebras with denotational models of programs, including relations, predicate transformers, or sets of traces and by enriching these with notions of store and state, with data types, assignment and process interference.

This separation of concern makes the approach open, modular and highly automatic. Its implementation in Isabelle/HOL is particularly simple. It yields lightweight tools which are themselves correct by construction and can be combined with various programming languages and integrated into different formal methods.

We illustrate the approach through three examples: a verification tool for while programs based on Kleene algebra with tests, its extension to a Morgan-style program refinement tool, and a prototype for verifying and constructing shared variable concurrent programs based on a new variant of concurrent Kleene algebra. Time permitting, we

will outline how more powerful program analysis tools can be obtained from more expressive algebras.

Kleene algebra is sound and complete for the equational theory of regular expressions. After Kozen introduced the notion of Kleene algebra, various extensions of the algebra were so appeared as to be suitable for each purpose.

Complete idempotent semiring, aka quantale, is an algebraic structure strongly related with Kleene algebra. In this talk, we study on a relaxation of complete idempotent semiring, called a complete IL-semiring which gives up the one side of distributivity of multiplication over the join.

We give some relational models of complete IL-semirings by multirelations and convex-relations. Multirelations are appeared in the study of predicate transformer, game logic, and concurrent propositional dynamic logic. Convex relations is a relational generalisation of a semantic domain of probabilistic systems introduced by McIver et al.

In the first part, we study the relationship of complete IL-semirings and weaker variants of Kleene algebras. In the second part, we study various relational models of complete IL-semirings (or weak Kleene algebras).

We devise a generic framework where a weakest precondition semantics, in the form of indexed posets, is derived from a monad whose Kleisli category is enriched by posets. It is inspired by Jacobs' recent identication of a categorical structure that is common in various predicate transformers, but adds generality in the following aspects: 1) different notions of modality (such as \may" vs. \must") are captured by Eilenberg-Moore algebras; 2) nested branching--like in games and in probabilistic systems with nondeterministic environments--is modularly modeled by a monad on the Eilenberg-Moore category of another.

The work is to appear in Proc. CMCS 2014.

The talk will be based on our Concur'12 and Concur'13 papers, which study verification of quantum systems, including quantum programs, modelled by quantum Markov chains (qMCs). We consider three kinds of long-term behaviour, namely reachability, repeated reachability and persistence, of qMCs. As a stepping-stone, we introduce the notion of bottom strongly connected component (BSCC) of a qMC and develop an algorithm for finding BSCC decompositions of the state space of a qMC. As the major contribution, several (classical) algorithms for computing the reachability, repeated reachability and persistence probabilities of a qMC are presented, and their complexities are analysed.

If one proceeds by analogy with mathematical physics, it is natural to inquire

the geometric (rather than simply symbolic) nature of logical reasoning.

In this introductory talk, I will describe how this question may be investigated

starting from a series of recent advances at the converging point of proof theory

and of programming language semantics. In particular, I will explain how

a careful study of linear continuations, the most elementary mechanism

common to proofs and to programs, enables one to evacuate the historical divide

between classical and constructive logic, and reveals the existence

of a logical pulsation which regulates reasoning and whose geometry

is related to well-known structures in mathematical physics.

We study bisimulation and context equivalence in a probabilistic lambda-calculus. Firstly, we show a technique for proving congruence of probabilistic applicative bisimilarity. While the technique follows Howe's method, some of the technicalities are quite different, relying on non-trivial "disentangling" properties for sets of real numbers. We then analyze the impact the employed notion of reduction has on full-abstraction, giving somewhat surprising results in the call-by-value case. We finally give another unexpected result about the discriminating power of probabilistic contexts on pure lambda-terms.

The second part is about solving equations on infinite streams: under what conditions does a recursive definition produce a unique function on streams?

The third part is about a new kind data type, which I call "Wander Types". It allows the definition of non-well-founded structures with fine control on branching behaviour.

We introduce update monads as a generalization of state monads. Update monads are compatible compositions of reader and writer monads given by a set and a monoid. Distributive laws between such monads are given by monoid actions.

We also discuss a dependently typed generalization of update monads. Unlike simple update monads, those cannot be factored into a reader and writer monad.

Dependently typed update monads arise from cointerpreting directed containers, by which we mean interpreting the opposite of the category directed containers into the category of set functors.

The Łoś Theorem is a fundamental theorem for ultrafilters, which justifies arguments with ``almost-everywhere''.  The condition to be an ultrafilter in the theorem seemed to be essential, since its classical proof used a law of excluded middle.  However, the Łoś Theorem can be stated with filters, not necessarily ultrafilters.

We introduce (elementary) topoi and their internal language, which is simply-typed higher-order logic.  And then, we state the ``intuitionistic version'' of the Łoś Theorem for a topos E by constructing a topos F which is called the topos of filters of E.

We introduce two forms of modelling of systems that consist of objects that are combined together by the means of bonds. In reaction systems for bonding we define how bonds are created and dissolved via reduction-style semantics. The usefulness of reaction systems is illustrated with examples taken from software engineering and biochemistry. We also introduce reversible event structures and define the notion of configuration. We then discuss how to give semantics of reaction systems for bonding in terms of reversible event structures.

Tannaka-style reconstruction theorem for profinite monoids with an application to Eilenberg-Reiterman's variety theory

Eilenberg-Reiterman's variety theory is one of the central theories in algebraic studies of finite automata and regular languages. In its recent development, Rhodes and Steinberg pointed out that the Boolean algebra of regular languages admits a bialgebra structure and revealed its important role in the duality-theoretic formulation of the variety theory. In this talk, we study the structure of the bialgebra of regular languages using a traditional idea from the linear representation theory of groups. In particular, we aim at clarifying a close connection between algebraic structures on the bialgebra of regular languages and geometric structures of finite automata. Our main result claims that there exists a bijective correspondence between bilinear multiplications of regular languages that are compatible with respect to word decompositions and binary products on finite automata that are stable with respect to simulations. This is proved as a corollary of the Tannaka-style reconstruction theorem for profinite monoids, which is an analogue of the classical Tannaka duality theorem for compact groups and indicates a categorical universality of the Boolean algebra of regular languages with respect to finite automata and simulations.

確率という概念の数学的定式化としては、(若い頃の)Kolmogorovによる公理的確率論が広く使われている。しかし、根本的な問題をいくつも抱えている。例えば、最初に確率空間を定めなければならず、必要以上に複雑になることがある。また計算可能性との関連が不明確である。

一方で、von Mises, Solomonoff, (晩年の)Kolomogorovらにより、ランダムと確率の関係についての研究がなされてきており、その一つの成果が、ゲーム論的確率論である。これまでは、統計や経済の分野への応用が研究されてきた。しかしその歴史的経緯から、計算可能性との関連も深い。そこで計算機科学への応用を見据えたゲーム論的確率論の概説を行いたい。

理学部7号館1階 102教室   Room 102, School of Science Bldg. No. 7

Talk 1: Juggling meets coinduction

In this talk, I will present an application of coinduction, juggling.  Buhler et al. presented a mathematical theory of toss juggling by regarding a toss pattern as an arithmetic function, where the function must satisfy a condition for the pattern to be valid.  In this talk, I will formalize their theory in terms of coinduction, reflecting the fact that the validity of toss juggling is related to a property of infinite phenomena.  A tactic is implemented for proving the validity of toss patterns in Coq.  Additionally, the completeness and soundness of a well-known algorithm for checking the validity is certified.  The result exposes a practical aspect of coinductive proofs.  Most part of this talk has been presented in CPP 2012.  Some open problems also will be introduced.

Talk 2: Metamorphism in jigsaw

In this talk, I will present a new computation model for metamorphism.  A metamorphism is an unfold after a fold, consuming an input by the fold then generating an output by the unfold.  It is typically useful for converting data representations, e.g., radix conversion of numbers.  Bird and Gibbons have shown that metamorphisms can be incrementally processed in streaming style when a certain condition holds because part of the output can be determined before the whole input is given.  However, whereas radix conversion of fractions is amenable to streaming, radix conversion of natural numbers cannot satisfy the condition because it is impossible to determine part of the output before the whole input is completed. In this talk, I present a jigsaw model in which metamorphisms can be partially processed for outputs even when the streaming condition does not hold.  The jigsaw model allows us to process metamorphisms in a flexible way that includes parallel computation.  We also apply our model to other examples of metamorphisms.  Most part of this talk is recently published in Journal of Functional Programming.  Additionally, I will present some further work on this work.

Talk 1: Proving open induction using delimited control operators

Open Induction (OI) is a principle classically equivalent to Dependent

Choice, which is, unlike the later, closed under double-negation

translation and A-translation. In the context of Constructive Reverse

Mathematics, Wim Veldman has shown that, in presence of Markov's

Principle, OI on Cantor space is equivalent to Double-negation Shift

(DNS). With Danko Ilik, we have reworked Veldman's proof to give a

constructive proof of OI, where DNS is interpreted using delimited

control operators.

Joint work with Danko Ilik.

Talk 2: Walking through infinite trees with mixed induction and coinduction: A Proof Pearl with the Fan Theorem and Bar Induction.

We study temporal properties over infinite binary red-blue trees in

the setting of constructive type theory. We consider several familiar

path-based properties, typical to linear-time and branching-time

temporal logics like LTL and CTL*, and the corresponding tree-based

properties, in the spirit of the modal mu-calculus. We conduct a

systematic study of the relationships of the path-based and tree-based

versions of ``eventually always blueness '' and mixed

inductive-coinductive ``almost always blueness'' and arrive at a

diagram relating these properties to each other in terms of

implications that hold either unconditionally or under specific

assumptions (Weak Continuity for Numbers, the Fan Theorem, Lesser

Principle of Omniscience, Bar Induction).

Since the early nineties, coalgebra has become an active area of research in which one tries to understand all kinds of infinite data types, automata, transition systems and dynamical systems from a unifying perspective. The focus of coalgebra is on observable behaviour and one uses coinduction as a central methodology, both for behavioural specifications and to prove behavioural equivalences. These days, one uses coalgebraic techniques in a wide variety of areas, ranging from automata theory to software engineering to ecology. In this talk, we shall illustrate the coalgebraic approach by discussing a number examples, including streams, automata and circuits.

Quantitative relaxations of concurrent data structures

理学部7号館1階 102教室   Room 102, School of Science Bldg. No. 7

This talk is about our recent work on relaxing the semantics of concurrent data structures, in a quantitative way, so that they allow better-performing implementations. By their nature, data structures are bottlenecks in the presence of concurrency, e.g.  the top pointer of a stack is a point of contention for which all threads compete. As a consequence, implementations of concurrent data structures often show negative scalability. Recent trends in concurrency show that relaxing the semantics may be the way to better performance. In this work we provide a framework for quantitative relaxations of concurrent data structures, where the allowed``error" from the perfect semantics is quantified by a distance. During the talk, we will use a stack as a running example. Also we present new concurrent implementation of a quantitatively relaxed stack that performs well and shows positive scalability.

Kochen-Specher theorem, which characterize quantum physics, states that there does not exist any valuation satisfying functional composition condition (FUNC). Because of this theorem, we can not assign true or false to quantum propositions. However, this theorem does not assert the impossibility of partial valuations. In this talk, I show that a partial valuation can be extended to a sieve-valued generalized valuation, using a certain presheaf that arises naturally in quantum physics.

理学部7号館1階 102教室   Room 102, School of Science Bldg. No. 7

(This is a replay of the talk done at summer seminar with RIMS, 24 Sept.)

Game semantics, developed in the 90s, is an approach to give denotational semantics to various kinds of programming languages, logic, and type systems. Recently it has been studied actively, since it gives us formal semantics with some nice features, such as full abstraction or full completeness. In this talk, first I will introduce basic notions and intuition of what called game semantics (rather informally). Then, as an application of game semantics, we see a game model of SCI (a simple programming language with concurrency). The game model turns out to coincide with a logical circuit representation, event logic -- therefore a compiler that translates an (extension of) SCI program into a VHDL code (i.e. a logical circuit) has been studied and developed by Ghica et al.

Talk 1: A Representation Theorem for Unique Decomposition Categories

Haghverdi introduced the notion of unique decomposition categories as a foundation for categorical study of Girard’s Geometry of Interaction (GoI). The execution formula in GoI provides a semantics of cut-elimination process, and we can capture the execution formula in every unique decomposition category: each hom-set of a unique decomposition category comes equipped with a partially defined countable summation, which captures the countable summation that appears in the execution formula. The fundamental property of unique decomposition categories is that if the execution formula in a unique decomposition category is always defined, then the unique decomposition category has a trace operator that is given by the execution formula. In this paper, we introduce a subclass of unique decomposition categories, which we call strong unique decomposition categories, and we prove the fundamental property for strong unique decomposition categories as a corollary of a representation theorem for strong unique decomposition categories: we show that for every strong unique decomposition category C, there is a faithful strong symmetric monoidal functor from C to a category with countable biproducts, and the countable biproducts characterize the structure of the strong unique decomposition category via the faithful functor.

Talk 2: Step Indexed Realizability Semantics for a Call-by-Value Language

Based on Basic Combinatorial Objects

We propose a mathematical framework for step indexed realizability semantics of a call-by-value polymorphic lambda calculus with recursion, existential types and recursive types. Our framework subsumes step indexed realizability semantics by untyped call-by-value lambda calculi as well as categorical abstract machines. Starting from an extension of Hofstra’s basic combinatorial objects, we construct a step indexed categorical realizability semantics. Our main result is soundness and adequacy of our step indexed realizability semantics. As an application, we show that a small step operational semantics captures the big step operational semantics of the call-by-value polymorphic lambda calculus. We also give a safe implementation of the call-by-value polymorphic lambda calculus into a categorical abstract machine.

理学部7号館2階 214教室   Room 214, School of Science Bldg. No. 7

(Joint work with Kohei Suenaga and Ichiro Hasuo. To appear in NSV 2012)

We present StP^dt, an extension of Lustre-like stream-processing language with an infinitesimal value dt. The infinitesimal value enables StP^dt to capture the behavior of hybrid systems modeled in the continuous signal-processing style such as Simulink models. We present by intuition how StPdt deals with continuous signals and signal processing blocks based on nonstandard analysis. The main idea is to convert continuous signals into hyperstreams, streams whose sampling interval is dt, and apply sectionwise execution.

化学東館2階 236教室   Room 236, Kagaku-Higashikan (Not sure where it is? You can first come to our office, Room 401/415, School of Science Bldg. No. 7)

The proof works on discrete algorithms are often very complicated.  Without the help of automated theorem provers, it is needed to provide large amount of interactive proof scripts, which requires thorough human involvement.

Why3 is a proving platform developed in Laboratoire de Recherche Informatique (LRI), Université Paris-Sud that allows to combine several theorem provers. By using it, one can purely separate the logical specification and algorithm implementation. As a result, Why3 contributes to make proof tasks more automatized than by using theorem provers individually.

In our work, Bellman-Ford algorithm was chosen as one example to distinguish the major problems in formally proving discrete algorithms. My presentation will consists of four parts. First, I will explain the algorithm behavior. Second, I will introduce Why3 with small examples available from the official gallery. Then I will explain and show the complete proof as a demo. Finally as a conclusion, I will illustrate the roadmap of the work.

This work was realized by the courtesy of Dr. Jean-Christophe Filliâtre in LRI, who supervised me during the internship in Feburary - March 2012.

Generalization of UnCAL with any algebraic computational effect

理学部7号館1階 102教室   Room 102, School of Science Bldg. No. 7

UnCAL, which is introduced by Buneman et al., is (can be seen as) a simply typed (lambda) calculus extended with a kind of graph data type and with some functions for the graph.  The graph is multi-rooted edge-labeled nondeternistic graph.  UnCAL is designed as evaluation of any terms terminate as finite graphs, and so does not have non-terminating powerful operator such as fixed point operator; instead, UnCAL has structural recursion.  Technical points of UnCAL consists of definitions of

 1) graph (a kind of coalgebra),

 2) graph representation (bialgebra and its full-definability), and

 3) graph transformation (structural recursion).

(and efficiency, not addressed in my work.)

In this talk I explain how to generalize UnCAL (i.e., the above three points) with any ranked monad, which replace the above "nondeterministic" with any computational effects such as weighted-nondeterminism (multiset monad), probablistic-nondeterminism (distribution monad) and ordered-nondeterminism (list monad).  One main contribution is how to construct free iteration monads.

The talk will use categorical techniques to give a new way of representing predicates that is especially suited for "quantitative" predicate logic. The relevant structure is illustrated for classical, probabilistic and quantum logic. These new predicates give rise to fibred/indexed categories. In the quantum case the Born rule appears as a form of substitution. Predicates can also be used to specify measurements in this setting.

Encryption Schemes Secure in the Presence of Key Cycles

理学部7号館5階 511教室   Room 511, School of Science Bldg. No. 7

Traditionally the security of encryption schemes has relied

on the assumption that the decryption keys are not accessible to the

attacker neither directly (e.g. some parts of the decryption key might

have been leaked) nor indirectly (e.g. never encrypt messages that

depend on the decryption key). However this assumption has been

challenged in different contexts in the last decade. The main sources

have been side-channel attacks and formal cryptography.

In this talk we will give an introduction to the traditional security

notions for encryption schemes as well as the new notion of security

in the presence of key cycles. We will explain why the latter notion

is difficult to achieve using previous techniques. Finally we will

introduce the first practical encryption scheme achieving the latter

security notion (appeared at CRYPTO 2008).

It itself contains no categorical notion, but from a categorical point of view, the theorem represents the duality, what is called the Gelfand Duality, between the category of commutative C*-algebras and that of compact Hausdorff spaces. In the seminar, first I will give the overview of the proof of the theorem, and then talk the categorical meanings.

Hiroyoshi Sekine (U. Tokyo),  Flows and Stream Processing

理学部7号館1階 102教室

To verify a hybrid system, continuous values need to be represented in discrete form. The idea of nonstandard analysis gives us a solution to the problem how to realize this. In the seminar, I will talk about an introduction to nonstandard analysis, and  how to encode a continuous flow as a sequence and to decode it. This conversion enables us to treat continuous values by using discrete method.

Toshiki Kataoka (U. Tokyo),  Viro’s patchworking method

I will present a method to construct hypersurfaces on real varieties of given isotopy types.  Roughly speaking, patchworking, the name of this method, means "to stitch some parts of many hypersurfaces together".  Viro discovered that the properly patchworked piece-wise-hypersurface is approximated by a genuine hypersurface!

In the seminar, I will talk about toric varieties first, then, sketch the proof of the theorem and show the examples.

Akira Yoshimizu (U. Tokyo),  Introduction to Linear Logic

This presentation is based on

Vincent Danos & Roberto Di Cosmo, The Linear Logic Primer.

First I will introduce Linear Logic as “logic of resource” informally,

then take a look at its formal definition by a variant of sequent calculus.

The definition is obtained from usual sequent calculus, forbidding some rules and adding two modalities.

I will also show some important equivalences in Linear Logic.

Preliminary knowledge about sequent calculus is not necessary.

Tetsuri Moriya (U. Tokyo),  Adequacy for SOS by Category Theory : Bialgebras

I will explain the contents of

Bartek Klin: Bialgebras for structural operational semantics: An introduction

This paper provides us how to guarantee congruences of SOS specifications, which are definitely necessary, at level of category theory. To do so, we use bialgebras, which include both algebraic and coalgebraic structures that respectively correspond to initial and final semantics.

I won’t assume so much knowledge about category theory.......

We add, to the common combination of a WHILE-language and a Hoare-style program logic, a constant dt that represents an infinitesimal (i.e. infinitely small) value. The outcome is a framework for modeling and verification of hybrid systems: hybrid systems exhibit both continuous and discrete dynamics and getting them right is a pressing challenge. We rigorously define the semantics of programs in the language of nonstandard analysis, on the basis of which the program logic is shown to be sound and relatively complete.

近年、SLAM, BLASTなど手続き型言語プログラムのためのソフトウェアモデル検査器のsuccessに影響を受け、モデル検査風の「push button」式な高階関数型言語のための自動プログラム検証器の開発が進んでいます。SMT solver, predicate abstraction, interpolation, CEGARなど、手続き型言語(正確には一階の関数型言語)の検証で培われた技術を取り込み、高い精度の自動解析を実現します。しかし、これらは一階の世界の技術を生かすべく、controlとdataを分けるframeworkを採用しているが故、一階の検証器にはない不完全性の欠陥もあります。今回の講演では、高階関数型言語検証器Depcegarの紹介と、検証器が抱える不完全性について説明します。

Ichiro Hasuo (U. Tokyo),  Semantics of Higher-Order Quantum Computation via Geometry of Interaction

(Joint work with Naohiko Hoshino, RIMS, Kyoto University. The paper appeared in LICS 2011)

While much of the current study on quantum computation employs low-level formalisms such as quantum circuits, several high-level languages/calculi have been recently proposed aiming at structured quantum programming. The current work contributes to the semantical study of such languages, by providing interaction-based semantics of a functional quantum programming language; the latter is based on linear lambda calculus and is equipped with features like the ! modality and recursion. The proposed denotational model is the first one that supports the full features of a quantum functional programming language; we also prove adequacy of our semantics. The construction of our model is by a series of existing techniques taken from the semantics of classical computation as well as from process theory. The most notable among them is Girard’s Geometry of Interaction (GoI), categorically formulated by Abramsky, Haghverdi and Scott.  The mathematical genericity of these techniques—largely due to their categorical formulation—is exploited for our move from classical to quantum.

Ichiro Hasuo (U. Tokyo), Theory of Coalgebra: Towards Mathematics of Systems

(2010/6/30 の情報科学科講演会のリプレイです)

1990年代の Jacobs と Rutten の諸結果に始まり,状態遷移システム(たとえばオートマトン)の圏論的モデルとして成功を収めつつある coalgebra (余代数)の概念について,概説します.最近盛り上がっているいくつかのトピックについて手短に紹介しますが,ポイントは圏論(「なんでも矢印で書こう!」というフォーマリズムです)の持つ抽象力です.計算機科学における,一見異なるいろいろな現象の共通する本質をとらえて,「同じもの」として記述することができます.

一例として,後半の時間を使って「軌跡意味論と模倣関係の一般理論」に関するわれわれの結果を紹介します.双模倣関係 (bisimilarity) が集合と関数の圏 Sets における coalgebra でとらえられる,というのはよく知られた結果ですが,軌跡意味論 (trace semantics) は「内部の分岐構造を気にしない」という点で双模倣関係よりも粗い同値関係です.圏を Sets から Kleisli category と呼ばれるものに取り替えることで,軌跡意味論がやはりcoalgebra を使ってとらえられることを示します.われわれの一般理論について特筆すべきなのは「分岐の種類」 (たとえば非決定性 vs. 確率的分岐) がパラメータになっていて一様に扱えることです.このおかげで,非決定性システムに対する既存の結果を確率的システムに対して「移転」することができます.

圏論 (category theory) については「聞いたことはあるが,よくわからん」という方が多いかもしれません.そういう方こそぜひ聞いてみてください.
