Functorial semantics of rewrite theories

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper develops a close analogy between Lawvere's functorial semantics of equational theories [21], and a similar 2-functorial semantics for rewrite theories, which specify concurrent systems and whose models are "true concurrency" models of such systems. This has the advantage of unifying within a single 2-functorial framework both models and rewrite theory morphisms. Such morphisms are used in Maude to "put rewrite theories together" in different constructions, including parameterized rewrite theory specifications.
