If you have a question about this talk, please contact Benedikt Ahrens. Each Multiplicative Exponential Linear Logic (MELL) proof-net can be expanded into a differential net, which is its Taylor expansion. I recently proved that two different MELL proof-nets have two different Taylor expansions. A corollary of this theorem is a completeness result for MELL : The relational model is injective for MELL proof-nets, i.e. the equality between MELL proof-nets in the relational model is exactly axiomatized by cut-elimination, which was conjectured twenty years ago. I will mention some consequences: a new proof of confluence, the canonicity of the Danos-Regnier syntax, a notion of principal typing for linear logic, the possibility to investigate normalisation by evaluation.
