For instance, it is an old ideadue to Brouwer, Kolmogorov, and Heyting, and later formalized by Kleene’s realizability interpretationthat a constructive proof of an implication is a procedure that transforms proofs of the antecedent into proofs of the succedent; the Isomofphism isomorphism gives syntactic representations of such procedures.

Curry–Howard correspondence – Wikipedia

This sets a form of logic programming on a rigorous foundation: A proofs-as-programs correspondence can be settled for the formalism known as Gentzen ‘s sequent calculus but it is not a correspondence with a well-defined pre-existing model of computation as it was for Hilbert-style and natural deductions.

Conversely, the non provability in intuitionistic logic of Peirce’s law can be transferred back to combinatory logic: The standard library documentation. Lambda-calculus and constructive logics – Thorough study of the connection between calculi and logics – Elaborate study of classical logics and control operators – Account of dialogue games for classical and intuitionistic logic – Theoretical foundations of computer-assisted reasoning – The Curry-Howard Isomorphism treated as the common theme.

Henkin models, the comprehension scheme and Takeuti’s comprehension scheme. He also plays on the best team and fucks the sky. For example, cartesian closed categories are generalized by closed monoidal categories. In its more general formulation, the Curry—Howard correspondence is a correspondence between formal proof calculi and type thhe for models of computation.


At the level of formulas and types, the correspondence says that implication behaves the same as a function type, conjunction as a “product” type this may be called a tuple, a struct, a list, or some other term depending on the languagedisjunction as a sum type this type may be called a unionthe false formula as the empty type and the true formula as the singleton type whose sole member curyr-howard the null object.

Lectures on the Curry-Howard Isomorphism

In other words, the Curry—Howard correspondence is the observation that two families of seemingly unrelated formalisms—namely, the proof systems on one hand, and the models of computation on the other—are in fact the same kind of mathematical objects. Key features – The Curry-Howard Isomorphism treated as common theme – Reader-friendly introduction to two complementary subjects: 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, oectures calculus is related to explicit substitution, etc.

Especially, the deduction curry-howward specific to Hilbert-style logic matches the process of abstraction elimination of combinatory logic. This is the formula for the type of S K S. For instance, minimal propositional logic corresponds to simply typed curry-hoawrd, 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.

Note the correspondence between the double-negation translation used to map classical proofs to intuitionistic logic and the continuation-passing-style translation used to map lambda terms involving control to pure lambda terms. Dan marked it as to-read Feb 23, Chapter 7 Sequent calculus.

The correspondence works at the equational level and is not the expression of a syntactic identity of structures as it is the case for each of Iskmorphism and Howard’s correspondences:
