A Parameterized Type System for Simple Loose Ownership Domains

By: Jan Schaefer, Arnd Poetzsch-Heffter


This paper develops so-called loose domains which abstract over several precise domains in order to overcome the limitations of expressiveness of ownership domains. Furthermore, ownership domains are simplified by reducing the number of domains per object to two and hard-wiring the access permissions between domains. The resulting type system is formalized for anOO core language and proofs of type soundness and of a fundamental accessibility property are provided.
