Making Concurrency Functional by Glynn Winskel http://arxiv.org/abs/2202.13910 The article bridges between two major paradigms in computation, the functional, at basis computation from input to output, and the interactive, where computation reacts to its environment while underway. Central to any compositional theory of interaction is the dichotomy between a system and its environment. Concurrent […]
James Wood and Robert Atkey. A Framework for Substructural Type Systems. ESOP 2022, to appear. 2022. [BIB] [PDF] Abstract Mechanisation of programming language research is of growing interest, and the act of mechanising type systems and their metatheory is generally becoming easier as new techniques are invented. However, state-of-the-art techniques mostly rely on structurality of the type system — […]
ath.CT String diagrams for non-strict monoidal categories Authors: Paul Wilson, Dan R. Ghica, Fabio Zanasi Abstract: Whereas string diagrams for strict monoidal categories are well understood, and have found application in several fields of Computer Science, graphical formalisms for non-strict monoidal categories are far less studied. In this paper, we provide a presentation by generators and relations of string […]
Effect handlers allow for programming with user-defined computational effects, with applications including custom lightweight concurrency (threads, async-await, actors, generators), error handling, dependency injection, etc. Effect handlers originate from the realm of functional programming, and the main goal of this highly experimental library is to explore how they fit in the more object-oriented setting of C++. The library relies […]
