Title: Bringing equations back to algebraic effect handlers


Algebraic effects are computational effects that can be described with a set of basic operations and equations between them. As many interesting effect handlers do not respect these equations, most approaches assume a trivial theory, sacrificing both reasoning power and safety. I will present an alternative approach where the effect system tracks equations that are observed in subparts of the program, yielding a sound and flexible logic, and paving a way for practical optimizations and reasoning tools.
