In this paper we show that the Stone representation theorem for Boolean algebras can be generalized to combinatory algebras. In every combinatory algebra there is a Boolean algebra of central elements (playing the role of idempotent elements in rings), whose operations are defined by suitable combinators. Central elements are used to represent any(More)
Scott's information systems provide a categorically equivalent, intensional description of Scott domains and continuous functions. Following a well established pattern in denotational semantics, we define a linear version of information systems, providing a model of intuitionistic linear logic (a new-Seely category), with a " set-theoretic " interpretation(More)
Lambda abstraction algebras (LAAs) are designed to algebraize the untyped lambda calculus in the same way cylindric and polyadic algebras algebraize the first-order predicate logic. Like combinatory algebras they can be defined by true identities and thus form a variety in the sense of universal algebra, but they differ from combinatory algebras in several(More)
