The BHK interpretation interprets intuitionistic proofs as functions but it does not specify the class of functions relevant for the interpretation. Want to add to the discussion? Conversely, combinatory logic and simply typed lambda calculus are not the only models of computationeither.

Girard’s linear logic was developed from the fine analysis of the use of resources in some models of lambda calculus; is there typed version of Turing’s machine that would behave as a proof system?

If one takes lambda calculus for this class of function, then the BHK interpretation tells the same as Howard’s correspondence between natural deduction and lambda calculus.

For instance, minimal propositional logic corresponds to simply typed lambda-calculus, first-order logic corresponds to dependent types, second-order logic corresponds to polymorphic types, sequent c The Curry-Howard isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi as found in type theory. The internal language of these categories is the linear type system corresponding to linear logicwhich generalizes simply-typed lambda calculus as the internal language of cartesian closed categories.

That is, the Curry—Howard correspondence that proofs are elements of inhabited types is generalized to the notion homotopic equivalence of proofs as paths in space, the identity type or equality type of type theory being interpreted as a path.

I would like to learn about Curry-Howard Isomorphism because I want to know more about connections between computability and logic.

If one abstracts on the peculiarities of either formalism, the following generalization arises: But there is more to the isomorphism than this. Kreisel ‘s modified realizability applies to intuitionistic higher-order predicate logic and shows that the simply typed lambda term inductively extracted from the proof realizes the initial formula.

The extensive bibliography is indispensable. This can be formalized using inference rulesas in the left column of the following table. Let’s imagine, for every type, a logical proposition. One at the level of formulas and types that is independent of which particular proof system or isomrphism of computation is considered, and one at the level of proofs and programs which, this time, is specific to the particular choice of proof system and model of computation considered.

However, the properties that can be expressed as types to be checked by the compiler are typically restricted in most languages, except “dependently typed” programming languages, where curyr-howard any proposition can be expressed, and this is why such languages are used as theorem provers.

Between the natural deduction isomorpjism and the lambda calculus there are the following correspondences:. There’s more that could be said but that’s a taste. The Curry-Howard isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi as found in type theory.

Anyway, the idea of B being inhabited at a particular time doesn’t mean anything in most logics though there are temporal logics that try to capture truth-at-a-moment-in-time that could be curry-hpward in a language; maybe see typestate Lectures on the Curry-Howard Isomorphism.

For instance, it is an old ideadue to Brouwer, Kolmogorov, and Heytingthat a constructive proof of an implication is a procedure that transforms proofs of the antecedent into proofs of the succedent; the Curry-Howard isomorphism gives syntactic representations of such procedures.

The structure of sequent calculus relates to a calculus whose structure is close to the one of some abstract machines. Abstract The Curry-Howard isomorphism states an amazing correspondence between systems of formal logic as encountered in proof theory and computational calculi as found in type theory.

This last formula must be applied to K. In general, the procedure is that whenever the program contains an application of the form P Qthese steps should be followed:.


In programming language theory and proof theorythe Curry—Howard correspondence also known as the Curry—Howard isomorphism or equivalenceor the proofs-as-programs and propositions- or formulae-as-types interpretation is the direct relationship between computer programs and mathematical proofs.

The proposition is true iff the type is inhabited. This book give an introduction to parts of proof theory and related aspects of type theory relevant crry-howard the Curry-Howard isomorphism.

Lambda-calculus, types and modelsEllis Horwood, Joachim Lambek showed in the early s that the proofs of intuitionistic propositional logic and the combinators of typed combinatory logic share a common equational theory which is the one of cartesian closed categories.

The best way of dealing with arbitrary computation from a logical point of view is still an actively debated research question, but one popular approach is based on using monads to segregate provably terminating from potentially non-terminating code an approach that also generalizes to much richer models of computation, [6] and is curry-oward related to modal logic by a natural extension of the Curry—Howard isomorphism [ext 1].

It can serve as an introduction to any or both of typed lambda-calculus and intuitionistic logic.

The correspondence works at the equational level and ispmorphism not the expression of a syntactic identity of structures as it is the case for each of Curry’s and Howard’s correspondences: Sequent calculus is characterized by the presence of left introduction rules, right introduction rule and a cut rule that can be eliminated.
