Comparing cubes of typed and type assignment systems

Abstract : We study the cube of type assignment systems, as introduced in [10], and confront it with Barendregt's typed λ-cube [3]. The first is obtained from the latter through applying a natural type erasing function E to derivation rules, that erases type information from terms. In particular , we address the question whether a judgement, derivable in a type assignment system, is always an erasure of a derivable judgement in a corresponding typed system; we show that this property holds only for the systems without polymorphism. The type assignment systems we consider satisfy the properties 'subject reduction' and 'strong normalization'. Moreover, we define a new type assignment cube that is isomorphic to the typed one.
