Description : This volume contains the proceedings of the Third Conference on Functional Programming Languages and Computer Architecture held in Portland, Oregon, September 14-16, 1987. This conference was a successor to two highly successful conferences on the same topics held at Wentworth, New Hampshire, in October 1981 and in Nancy, in September 1985. Papers were solicited on all aspects of functional languages and particularly implementation techniques for functional programming languages and computer architectures to support the efficient execution of functional programs. The contributions collected in this volume show that many issues regarding the implementation of Functional Programming Languages are now far better understood.
Description : This book presents latest research developments in the area of functional programming. The contributions in this volume cover a wide range of topics from theory, formal aspects of functional programming, transformational and generic programming to type checking and designing new classes of data types.Not all papers in this book belong to the category of research papers. Also, the categories of project description (at the start of a project) and project evaluation (at the end of a project) papers are represented. Particular trends in this volume are: - software engineering techniques such as metrics and refactoring for high-level programming languages;- generation techniques for data type elements as well as for lambda expressions;- analysis techniques for resource consumption with the use of high-level programming languages for embedded systems;- widening and strengthening of the theoretical foundations.The TFP community (www.tifp.org) is dedicated to promoting new research directions related to the field of functional programming and to investigate the relationships of functional programming with other branches of computer science. It is designed to be a platform for novel and upcoming research
Description : This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on the Implementation of Functional Languages, IFL 2001, held in Stockholm, Sweden in September 2001. The eleven revised full papers presented have gone through a thorough round of post-workshop reviewing and were selected from 28 workshop papers. Among the topics covered are relevant aspects of implementing and using functional languages, such as type systems, compilation, program optimization, theorem proving, program correctness, program analysis, parallel compilers, subtyping, and generic programming.
Description : This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Implementation of Functional Languages, IFL'97, held in St. Andrews, Scotland, UK, in September 1997. The 21 revised full papers presented were selected from the 34 papers accepted for presentation at the workshop during a second round of thorough a-posteriori reviewing. The book is divided in sections on compilation, types, benchmarking and profiling, parallelism, interaction, language design, and garbage collection.
Description : This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on the Implementation of Functional Languages, IFL'99, held in Lochem, The Netherlands, in September 1999. The 11 revised full papers presented were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing. The papers are organized in sections on applications, compilation techniques, language concepts, and parallelism.
