If you have a question about this talk, please contact Paul Levy. Stephen Kleene showed that any recursive enumerable predicate
The normal form is developed in a similar way to Peter Landin’s
SECD machine, but we observe some connections between programming
and topology.
The stack consists of values like h,
which, like the open part β of the basis, is covariant,
and indeed preserves meets.^{n}The formal meets of the basis elements lead to a generalisation of unification, which is Cleary’s “Logical Arithmetic” in the case of the reals. Roundedness with respect to the way-below or cover relation indicates how to improve the precision of a value and how to perform universal quantification over a compact subspace. Although this investigation clearly offers a plan for a compiler for the ASD language, I was prompted to do it by theoretical questions. In particular, I can show that any overt subspace of Cantor space or the reals is the image of an RE subset of ℕ.
