Coherence of subsumption for monadic types


One approach to give semantics to languages with subtypes is by translation to target languages without subtyping: subtypings AB are interpreted via conversion functions AB. This paper shows how to extend the method to languages with computational effects, using Moggi's computational metalanguage.
