Master’s Thesis

From November 2006 until the middle of May 2007 I wrote my Master’s thesis under the supervision of Jan Schwinghammer from the Programming Systems Lab.

Step-indexed Semantic Model of Types for the Functional Object Calculus.

Step-indexed semantic models of types were proposed as an alternative to the purely syntactic proofs of type safety using subject-reduction. This thesis introduces a step-indexed model for the functional object calculus, and uses it to prove the soundness of an expressive type system with object types, subtyping, recursive and bounded quantified types.
