Interpolation for predefined types(abstract)

We give a logic-independent semantics for predefined (data) types within the categorical abstract model theoretic framework of the theory of institutions. For this semantics we develop a generic interpolation result which can be easily applied to various concrete situations from the theory and practice of specification and programming. Our study of interpolation is motivated by a number of important applications to computing science especially in the area of structured specifications.
