This textbook explains the basic principles of categorical type theory and the techniques used to derive categorical semantics for specific type theories. It introduces the reader to ordered set theory, lattices and domains, and this material provides plenty of examples for an introduction to category theory, which covers categories, functors, natural transformations, the Yoneda lemma, cartesian closed categories, limits, adjunctions and indexed categories. Four kinds of formal system are considered in detail, namely algebraic, functional, polymorphic functional, and higher order polymorphic functional type theory. For each of these the categorical semantics are derived and results about the type systems are proved categorically. Issues of soundness and completeness are also considered. Aimed at advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates, this book will be of interest to theoretical computer scientists, logicians and mathematicians specializing in category theory.

Book Description:

This explanation of the basic principles of categorical type theory and the techniques used to derive categorical semantics for specific type theories introduces the reader to ordered set theory, lattices and domains, providing many examples for an introduction to category theory.

Review:

"A well-organized introduction to categorical methods of lambda calculus...The individual topics are treated in a uniform, balanced style from introduction, syntax, to categorical models and categorical-type theory correspondence." Jiri Adamek, Mathematical Reviews
