E. accessing a field or invoking a method), and (2) the outcome of performing those operations, where dependencies between the inputs and outputs of methods are tracked using (type) variables. In this way, our types express detailed properties about the contexts in which expressions can safely be used. More intuitively, they capture a certain notion of observational equivalence: two expressions with the same set of assignable types will be observationally indistinguishable. Our types thus constitute semantic predicates.

Let e → e’ ; then Π if and only if Π e’ : φ. J. S. Rowe Notice that, as usual, computational equality between expressions in FJ C is undecidable; as a consequence, through Theorem 10 we obtain that type assignment in our system is undecidable as well. We have also shown (variants of) the characterisation of normalisation properties: Theorem 11 ([19]). 1. If e is a head-normal form then there exists a strict type σ and type context Π such that Π e : σ; moreover, if e is not of the form new C (e n ) then for any arbitrary strict type σ there is a context such that Π e : σ.

S. Rowe 3. Unification can be extended to contexts as follows: Unify Γ, x :σ Γ , x :τ = S ◦ S where S = Unify σ τ S = Unify (S Γ) (S Γ ) Unify Γ, x :σ Γ = Unify Γ Γ (x ∈ Γ ) Unify ∅ Γ = Id 4. By abuse of notation, we will allow also the unification of any number of types or contexts ‘at one fell swoop’, by defining Unify σ1 σ2 . . σn = Unify (S σ2 ) (S σ3 ) . . (S σn ) ◦ S where S = Unify σ1 σ2 Notice that unification on records (as specified in the last two cases of the first part) recurses on the number of types in the record, ending up with the unification of simple types, which is dealt with in the first five cases.
