Equivalence of proof techniques in proving the fixpoint properties

Denotational Semantics is a unique course offered by the Computer Lab at UoC. It can be intimidating at first glance but at the same time bring you lots of fun and frustration at the same time. In this blog post we will look at three proof techniques in domain theory and investigate the connections between them. In this blog we look at three techniques that can be used to prove the fixpoint of a function, namely, Tarski’s fixpoint theorem, lfp1 + lfp2 and Scott induction....
