Slides of talks
I have slides for many of the talks which I have given in recent years,
and some from further back. When I have slides
available and some of the material covered is not in one of the papers
which I am otherwise putting on my site, I shall try to put them on this
MiscellaneousHere are some talks which I cannot reliably date.
If anyone recognises and can place them then I shall be happy to know.
A talk called Stone Duality gives old general
observations about Categorical Logic.
A seemingly untitled talk
links Scott's D-infinity model of the
lambda calculus with polarised linear logic and Girard's Ludics.
Another untitled talk on
Polarised Linear Logic gives an overview
of some relevant Category Theory.
In July 1995 Dana Scott received an honorary degree from the University
of Edinburgh. Mike Fourman organised a meeting by way of informal
celebration, and I gave a talk celebrating the Scott's time as
Professor of Mathematical Logic at Oxford. The talk
was called Dana Scott: The Oxford Years.
In September 1995 I gave a series of four lectures at a summer school
on Semantics and Logics of Computation at the Isaac Newton Institute for
Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. My title was
Game Semantics. The treatment in
these slides differs from that in the corresponding paper.
In July 1996 I was an invited speaker at the Association
of Symbolic Logic meeting in San Sebastian-Donostia, and
at the last minute was asked also to give a Tutorial.
The invited lecture
was Proof as Process
and the tutorial Linear Logic.
At the 11th International Workshop, Computer Science Logic.
Aarhus, August 1997 I gave an
Constructing Categories of Abstract Games.
I gave an Invited Lecture Sequentiality
at Mathematical Foundations of Progamming Semantics XIV,
Queen Mary, London, May 1998.
The work described is joint with Robin Cockett and Andrea Schalk.
I hope sometime to describe the relation with other abstract game models.
At the Joint AMS/SMF Meeting, Lyon, July 2001,
Special Session: Logic and Interaction,
I gave an Invited Lecture
Interaction of Strategies by
Composition of Interleavings.
In March 2006 I made a trip to Kuwait as a guest of KFAS,
the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences.
I gave two long lectures at Kuwait University, the first
being formally part of the Kuwait Lecture Series which is
a component of the Kuwait Mathematics Programme at Cambridge,
and the second being a more specialist lecture.
It reports on joint work with Andrea Schalk.
The abstract of the first
and abstract of the second
lecture give some idea of what is in the slides.
Algebra and Logic
Higher Dimensional Categories
I also gave a couple of lectures at the 34eme Ecole de Printemps
en Informatique Théorique whose subject was
Jeux en sémantique et vérification.
