Title: An Abstract Semantics for Atoms in Nuprl
Authors: Allen, Stuart F.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: 5-Jun-2006
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: We provide a supervaluating semantics for treating Atoms abstractly in Computational Type Theory, specifically for Nuprl logics. It supports a principled explanation for desirable gaps in provability without positing novel kinds of entities, nor relying in any way upon constructivity of the logic. Beyond that, though, we justify a rule that allows inference by renaming Atom values, and explore the impact of introducing this new rule upon notational definition as used in the logics.
