Storage operators and directed lambda-calculus

Journal of Symbolic Logic 60 (4):1054-1086 (1995)
Storage operators have been introduced by J. L. Krivine in [5] they are closed λ-terms which, for a data type, allow one to simulate a "call by value" while using the "call by name" strategy. In this paper, we introduce the directed λ-calculus and show that it has the usual properties of the ordinary λ-calculus. With this calculus we get an equivalent--and simple--definition of the storage operators that allows to show some of their properties: $\bullet$ the stability of the set of storage operators under the β-equivalence (Theorem 5.1.1); $\bullet$ the undecidability (and semidecidability) of the problem "is a closed λ-term t a storage operator for a finite set of closed normal λ-terms?" (Theorems 5.2.2 and 5.2.3); $\bullet$ the existence of storage operators for every finite set of closed normal λ-terms (Theorem 5.4.3); $\bullet$ the computation time of the "storage operation" (Theorem 5.5.2)
