Functional programming languages and computer architecture : 5th ACM conference, Cambridge, MA, USA, August 26-30, 1991 : proceedings by John Hughes ( Book )
17 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers a comprehensive view of the best and the latest work in functional programming. It is the proceedings of a major international conference and contains 30 papers selected from 126 submitted. A number of themes emerge. One is a growing interest in types: powerful type systems or type checkers supporting overloading, coercion, dynamic types, and incremental inference; linear types to optimize storage, and polymorphic types to optimize semantic analysis. The hot topic of partial evaluation is well represented: techniques for higher-order binding-time analysis, assuring termination of partial evaluation, and improving the residual programs a partial evaluator generates. The thorny problem of manipulating state in functional languages is addressed: one paper even argues that parallel programs with side-effects can be "more declarative" than purely functional ones. Theoretical work covers a new model of types based on projections, parametricity, a connection between strictness analysis and logic, and a discussion of efficient implementations of the lambda-calculus. The connection with computer architecture and a variety of other topics are also addressed."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
Functional programming : proceedings of the 1989 Glasgow workshop, 21-23 August 1989, Fraserburgh, Scotland by Kei Davis ( Book )
8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Functional Programming is a relatively new area of computer science. These proceedings contain 25 papers representing an excellent snapshot of the current state of functional programming and are written by the leading computer scientists in this aera. In some universities, a functional programming language is used as the introductory teaching language and computer architectures are being designed and investigated to support functional languages
