We formally prove that closure conversion with flat environments
for CPS lambda calculus is correct (preserves semantics) and safe
for time and space, meaning that produced code preserves the time
and space required for the execution of the source program.

We give a cost model to pre- and post-closure-conversion code by
formalizing profiling semantics that keep track of the time and
space resources needed for the execution of a program, taking
garbage collection into account. To show preservation of time and
space we set up a general, ``garbage-collection compatible'',
binary logical relation that establishes invariants on resource
consumption of the related programs, along with functional
correctness. Using this framework, we show semantics preservation
and space and time safety for terminating source programs, and
divergence preservation and space safety for diverging source
programs.

This is the first formal proof of space-safety of a
closure-conversion transformation. The transformation and the
proof are parts of a compiler pipeline. Our results are mechanized
in the Coq proof assistant.
