module plfa.part2.More where

So far, we have focussed on a relatively minimal language, based on Plotkin’s PCF, which supports functions, naturals, and fixpoints. In this chapter we extend our calculus to support the following:

  • primitive numbers
  • let bindings
  • products
  • an alternative formulation of products
  • sums
  • unit type
  • an alternative formulation of unit type
  • empty type
  • lists

All of the data types should be familiar from Part I of this textbook. For let and the alternative formulations we show how they translate to other constructs in the calculus. Most of the description will be informal. We show how to formalise the first four constructs and leave the rest as an exercise for the reader.

Our informal descriptions will be in the style of Chapter Lambda, using extrinsically-typed terms, while our formalisation will be in the style of Chapter DeBruijn, using intrinsically-typed terms.

By now, explaining with symbols should be more concise, more precise, and easier to follow than explaining in prose. For each construct, we give syntax, typing, reductions, and an example. We also give translations where relevant; formally establishing the correctness of translations will be the subject of the next chapter.

Primitive numbers

We define a Nat type equivalent to the built-in natural number type with multiplication as a primitive operation on numbers:

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  Nat                                 primitive natural numbers

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  con c                               constant
  L `* M                              multiplication

V, W ::= ...                        Values
  con c                               constant

Typing

The hypothesis of the con rule is unusual, in that it refers to a typing judgment of Agda rather than a typing judgment of the defined calculus:

c : ℕ
--------------- con
Γ ⊢ con c : Nat

Γ ⊢ L : Nat
Γ ⊢ M : Nat
---------------- _`*_
Γ ⊢ L `* M : Nat

Reduction

A rule that defines a primitive directly, such as the last rule below, is called a δ rule. Here the δ rule defines multiplication of primitive numbers in terms of multiplication of naturals as given by the Agda standard prelude:

L —→ L′
----------------- ξ-*₁
L `* M —→ L′ `* M

M —→ M′
----------------- ξ-*₂
V `* M —→ V `* M′

----------------------------- δ-*
con c `* con d —→ con (c * d)

Example

Here is a function to cube a primitive number:

cube : ∅ ⊢ Nat ⇒ Nat
cube = ƛ x ⇒ x `* x `* x

Let bindings

Let bindings affect only the syntax of terms; they introduce no new types or values:

Syntax

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `let x `= M `in N                   let

Typing

Γ ⊢ M ⦂ A
Γ , x ⦂ A ⊢ N ⦂ B
------------------------- `let
Γ ⊢ `let x `= M `in N ⦂ B

Reduction

M —→ M′
--------------------------------------- ξ-let
`let x `= M `in N —→ `let x `= M′ `in N

--------------------------------- β-let
`let x `= V `in N —→ N [ x := V ]

Example

Here is a function to raise a primitive number to the tenth power:

exp10 : ∅ ⊢ Nat ⇒ Nat
exp10 = ƛ x ⇒ `let x2  `= x  `* x  `in
              `let x4  `= x2 `* x2 `in
              `let x5  `= x4 `* x  `in
              x5 `* x5

Translation

We can translate each let term into an application of an abstraction:

(`let x `= M `in N) †  =  (ƛ x ⇒ (N †)) · (M †)

Here M † is the translation of term M from a calculus with the construct to a calculus without the construct.

Products

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  A `× B                              product type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `⟨ M , N ⟩                          pair
  `proj₁ L                            project first component
  `proj₂ L                            project second component

V, W ::= ...                        Values
  `⟨ V , W ⟩                          pair

Typing

Γ ⊢ M ⦂ A
Γ ⊢ N ⦂ B
----------------------- `⟨_,_⟩ or `×-I
Γ ⊢ `⟨ M , N ⟩ ⦂ A `× B

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ A `× B
---------------- `proj₁ or `×-E₁
Γ ⊢ `proj₁ L ⦂ A

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ A `× B
---------------- `proj₂ or `×-E₂
Γ ⊢ `proj₂ L ⦂ B

Reduction

M —→ M′
------------------------- ξ-⟨,⟩₁
`⟨ M , N ⟩ —→ `⟨ M′ , N ⟩

N —→ N′
------------------------- ξ-⟨,⟩₂
`⟨ V , N ⟩ —→ `⟨ V , N′ ⟩

L —→ L′
--------------------- ξ-proj₁
`proj₁ L —→ `proj₁ L′

L —→ L′
--------------------- ξ-proj₂
`proj₂ L —→ `proj₂ L′

---------------------- β-proj₁
`proj₁ `⟨ V , W ⟩ —→ V

---------------------- β-proj₂
`proj₂ `⟨ V , W ⟩ —→ W

Example

Here is a function to swap the components of a pair:

swap× : ∅ ⊢ A `× B ⇒ B `× A
swap× = ƛ z ⇒ `⟨ proj₂ z , proj₁ z ⟩

Alternative formulation of products

There is an alternative formulation of products, where in place of two ways to eliminate the type we have a case term that binds two variables. We repeat the syntax in full, but only give the new type and reduction rules:

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  A `× B                              product type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `⟨ M , N ⟩                          pair
  case× L [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ M ]             case

V, W ::=                            Values
  `⟨ V , W ⟩                          pair

Typing

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ A `× B
Γ , x ⦂ A , y ⦂ B ⊢ N ⦂ C
------------------------------- case× or ×-E
Γ ⊢ case× L [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ N ] ⦂ C

Reduction

L —→ L′
--------------------------------------------------- ξ-case×
case× L [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ N ] —→ case× L′ [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ N ]

--------------------------------------------------------- β-case×
case× `⟨ V , W ⟩ [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ N ] —→ N [ x := V ][ y := W ]

Example

Here is a function to swap the components of a pair rewritten in the new notation:

swap×-case : ∅ ⊢ A `× B ⇒ B `× A
swap×-case = ƛ z ⇒ case× z
                     [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ `⟨ y , x ⟩ ]

Translation

We can translate the alternative formulation into the one with projections:

  (case× L [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ N ]) †
=
  `let z `= (L †) `in
  `let x `= `proj₁ z `in
  `let y `= `proj₂ z `in
  (N †)

Here z is a variable that does not appear free in N. We refer to such a variable as fresh.

One might think that we could instead use a more compact translation:

-- WRONG
  (case× L [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ N ]) †
=
  (N †) [ x := proj₁ (L †) ][ y := proj₂ (L †) ]

But this behaves differently. The first term always reduces L before N, and it computes proj₁ and proj₂ exactly once. The second term does not reduce L to a value before reducing N, and depending on how many times and where x and y appear in N, it may reduce L many times or not at all, and it may compute proj₁ and proj₂ many times or not at all.

We can also translate back the other way:

(`proj₁ L) ‡  =  case× (L ‡) [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ x ]
(`proj₂ L) ‡  =  case× (L ‡) [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ y ]

Sums

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  A `⊎ B                              sum type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `inj₁ M                             inject first component
  `inj₂ N                             inject second component
  case⊎ L [inj₁ x ⇒ M |inj₂ y ⇒ N ]    case

V, W ::= ...                        Values
  `inj₁ V                             inject first component
  `inj₂ W                             inject second component

Typing

Γ ⊢ M ⦂ A
-------------------- `inj₁ or ⊎-I₁
Γ ⊢ `inj₁ M ⦂ A `⊎ B

Γ ⊢ N ⦂ B
-------------------- `inj₂ or ⊎-I₂
Γ ⊢ `inj₂ N ⦂ A `⊎ B

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ A `⊎ B
Γ , x ⦂ A ⊢ M ⦂ C
Γ , y ⦂ B ⊢ N ⦂ C
----------------------------------------- case⊎ or ⊎-E
Γ ⊢ case⊎ L [inj₁ x ⇒ M |inj₂ y ⇒ N ] ⦂ C

Reduction

M —→ M′
------------------- ξ-inj₁
`inj₁ M —→ `inj₁ M′

N —→ N′
------------------- ξ-inj₂
`inj₂ N —→ `inj₂ N′

L —→ L′
---------------------------------------------------------------------- ξ-case⊎
case⊎ L [inj₁ x ⇒ M |inj₂ y ⇒ N ] —→ case⊎ L′ [inj₁ x ⇒ M |inj₂ y ⇒ N ]

--------------------------------------------------------- β-inj₁
case⊎ (`inj₁ V) [inj₁ x ⇒ M |inj₂ y ⇒ N ] —→ M [ x := V ]

--------------------------------------------------------- β-inj₂
case⊎ (`inj₂ W) [inj₁ x ⇒ M |inj₂ y ⇒ N ] —→ N [ y := W ]

Example

Here is a function to swap the components of a sum:

swap⊎ : ∅ ⊢ A `⊎ B ⇒ B `⊎ A
swap⊎ = ƛ z ⇒ case⊎ z
                [inj₁ x ⇒ `inj₂ x
                |inj₂ y ⇒ `inj₁ y ]

Unit type

For the unit type, there is a way to introduce values of the type but no way to eliminate values of the type. There are no reduction rules.

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  `⊤                                  unit type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `tt                                 unit value

V, W ::= ...                        Values
  `tt                                 unit value

Typing

------------ `tt or ⊤-I
Γ ⊢ `tt ⦂ `⊤

Reduction

(none)

Example

Here is the isomorphism between A and A `× `⊤:

to×⊤ : ∅ ⊢ A ⇒ A `× `⊤
to×⊤ = ƛ x ⇒ `⟨ x , `tt ⟩

from×⊤ : ∅ ⊢ A `× `⊤ ⇒ A
from×⊤ = ƛ z ⇒ proj₁ z

Alternative formulation of unit type

There is an alternative formulation of the unit type, where in place of no way to eliminate the type we have a case term that binds zero variables. We repeat the syntax in full, but only give the new type and reduction rules:

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  `⊤                                  unit type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `tt                                 unit value
  `case⊤ L [tt⇒ N ]                   case

V, W ::= ...                        Values
  `tt                                 unit value

Typing

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ `⊤
Γ ⊢ M ⦂ A
------------------------ case⊤ or ⊤-E
Γ ⊢ case⊤ L [tt⇒ M ] ⦂ A

Reduction

L —→ L′
------------------------------------- ξ-case⊤
case⊤ L [tt⇒ M ] —→ case⊤ L′ [tt⇒ M ]

----------------------- β-case⊤
case⊤ `tt [tt⇒ M ] —→ M

Example

Here is half the isomorphism between A and A `× `⊤ rewritten in the new notation:

from×⊤-case : ∅ ⊢ A `× `⊤ ⇒ A
from×⊤-case = ƛ z ⇒ case× z
                      [⟨ x , y ⟩⇒ case⊤ y
                                    [tt⇒ x ] ]

Translation

We can translate the alternative formulation into one without case:

(case⊤ L [tt⇒ M ]) †  =  `let z `= (L †) `in (M †)

Here z is a variable that does not appear free in M.

Empty type

For the empty type, there is a way to eliminate values of the type but no way to introduce values of the type. There are no values of the type and no β rule, but there is a ξ rule. The case⊥ construct plays a role similar to ⊥-elim in Agda:

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  `⊥                                  empty type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  case⊥ L []                          case

Typing

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ `⊥
------------------ case⊥ or ⊥-E
Γ ⊢ case⊥ L [] ⦂ A

Reduction

L —→ L′
------------------------- ξ-case⊥
case⊥ L [] —→ case⊥ L′ []

Example

Here is the isomorphism between A and A `⊎ `⊥:

to⊎⊥ : ∅ ⊢ A ⇒ A `⊎ `⊥
to⊎⊥ = ƛ x ⇒ `inj₁ x

from⊎⊥ : ∅ ⊢ A `⊎ `⊥ ⇒ A
from⊎⊥ = ƛ z ⇒ case⊎ z
                 [inj₁ x ⇒ x
                 |inj₂ y ⇒ case⊥ y
                             [] ]

Lists

Syntax

A, B, C ::= ...                     Types
  `List A                             list type

L, M, N ::= ...                     Terms
  `[]                                 nil
  M `∷ N                              cons
  caseL L [[]⇒ M | x ∷ y ⇒ N ]        case

V, W ::= ...                        Values
  `[]                                 nil
  V `∷ W                              cons

Typing

----------------- `[] or List-I₁
Γ ⊢ `[] ⦂ `List A

Γ ⊢ M ⦂ A
Γ ⊢ N ⦂ `List A
-------------------- _`∷_ or List-I₂
Γ ⊢ M `∷ N ⦂ `List A

Γ ⊢ L ⦂ `List A
Γ ⊢ M ⦂ B
Γ , x ⦂ A , xs ⦂ `List A ⊢ N ⦂ B
-------------------------------------- caseL or List-E
Γ ⊢ caseL L [[]⇒ M | x ∷ xs ⇒ N ] ⦂ B

Reduction

M —→ M′
----------------- ξ-∷₁
M `∷ N —→ M′ `∷ N

N —→ N′
----------------- ξ-∷₂
V `∷ N —→ V `∷ N′

L —→ L′
--------------------------------------------------------------- ξ-caseL
caseL L [[]⇒ M | x ∷ xs ⇒ N ] —→ caseL L′ [[]⇒ M | x ∷ xs ⇒ N ]

------------------------------------ β-[]
caseL `[] [[]⇒ M | x ∷ xs ⇒ N ] —→ M

--------------------------------------------------------------- β-∷
caseL (V `∷ W) [[]⇒ M | x ∷ xs ⇒ N ] —→ N [ x := V ][ xs := W ]

Example

Here is the map function for lists:

mapL : ∅ ⊢ (A ⇒ B) ⇒ `List A ⇒ `List B
mapL = μ mL ⇒ ƛ f ⇒ ƛ xs ⇒
         caseL xs
           [[]⇒ `[]
           | x ∷ xs ⇒ f · x `∷ mL · f · xs ]

Formalisation

We now show how to formalise

  • primitive numbers
  • let bindings
  • products
  • an alternative formulation of products

and leave formalisation of the remaining constructs as an exercise.

Formalise the remaining constructs defined in this chapter. Make your changes in this file. Evaluate each example, applied to data as needed, to confirm it returns the expected answer:

  • sums (recommended)
  • unit type (practice)
  • an alternative formulation of unit type (practice)
  • empty type (recommended)
  • lists (practice)

Please delimit any code you add as follows:

Exercise double-subst (stretch)

Show that a double substitution is equivalent to two single substitutions.

postulate
  double-subst :
     {Γ A B C} {V : Γ  A} {W : Γ  B} {N : Γ , A , B  C} 
      N [ V ][ W ]  (N [ rename S_ W ]) [ V ]

Note the arguments need to be swapped and W needs to have its context adjusted via renaming in order for the right-hand side to be well typed.

Test examples

We repeat the test examples from Chapter DeBruijn, in order to make sure we have not broken anything in the process of extending our base calculus.
