This e-book constitutes the strictly refereed post-workshop court cases of the tenth foreign Workshop on machine technological know-how common sense, CSL'96, held because the fifth Annual convention of the eu organization of laptop technology good judgment (EACSL), in Utrecht, The Netherlands, in September 1996. the amount provides 26 revised complete papers chosen from a complete of first and foremost seventy five papers submitted; additionally integrated are refereed invited contributions.

Engineering a Compiler (book draft)

The proliferation of processors, environments, and constraints on structures has forged compiler expertise right into a wider number of settings, altering the compiler and compiler writer's position. now not is execution velocity the only real criterion for judging compiled code. at the present time, code will be judged on how small it really is, how a lot energy it consumes, how good it compresses, or what percentage web page faults it generates.

5 Examples 1. The Kleisli category based on the increasing path comonad T\ is cartesian closed, with exponentiation structure built from the standard splitmerge combination, which form an isomorphism. 34 BROOKES AND GEVA : COMPUTATIONAL COMONADS Using the computational pairing Imerge and split2, we obtain intensional forms of currying, uncurrying, and application which we will call cuTrV/, unaTrry2 and appj. ry / (a) x id) = e a. Since split2 o Imerge = id, it follows that cu7ry/(unaTrry2 h) = h.

The functor fun maps each algorithm from Two x Two to Two into a function from Two x Two to Two. In particular, fun(pb) = fun(lb) = fun(rb) = fun(db) = b. Similarly, fun(pbn) = b for all n > 0, and fun(b*) = b. In fact, b* = alg(b). Figure 12 illustrates the result of taking the extensional quotient of Figure 6. Boxes enclose equivalence classes of algorithms, arcs between boxes represent the quotient ordering, and within each box we retain the pointwise order to ease comparison with Figure 6. As expected, the quotient figure is isomorphic to Figure 4 when we identify each equivalence class with the function computed.

COCKETT & SEELY: WEAKLY DISTRIBUTIVE CATEGORIES 55 Next, given a two-tensor-polycategory P , the weakly distributive category W(P) is just the category part of P , viz. those morphisms whose source and target are singletons. The distributivities are essentially given by the (cut) rule and the axioms (<8> R) and (© L). For instance, 6% is given as (note the "exchange"): A,C— And the coherence conditions follow from the equivalences for polycategories. It is clear from the constructions above that WP(W) is isomorphic toW; indeed they are the same category.
