Title
Towards "dynamic domains" : totally continuous cocomplete Q-categories
Author
Abstract
It is common practice in both theoretical computer science and theoretical physics to describe the (static) logic of a system by means of a complete lattice. When formalizing the dynamics of such a system, the updates of that system organize themselves quite naturally in a quantale, or more generally, a quantaloid. In fact, we are led to consider cocomplete quantaloid-enriched categories as a fundamental mathematical structure for a dynamic logic common to both computer science and physics. Here we explain the theory of totally continuous cocomplete categories as a generalization of the well-known theory of totally continuous suplattices. That is to say, we undertake some first steps towards a theory of "dynamic domains". (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
