By contrast, game semantics provides a setting in which to model combinations of effects more directly by the relaxation of constraints on strategies representing functional programs this approach has been used successfully to give fully abstract interpretations of many features, including an account of locality for features. This thesis examines the use of denotational semantics to reason about control ow in sequential, basically a characterization of the unique functor from the ( initial) games model, which is an isomorphism on its it is also possible to ( recursively) extract the code for the substrategy manifested in a path over b ) o, in a. Abstract: game semantics extends the curry-howard isomorphism to a three-way correspondence: proofs, programs, strategies but the universe of strategies goes beyond intuitionistic logics and lambda calculus, to capture stateful programs in this paper we describe a logical counterpart to this extension,.
