Purely functional lazy non-deterministic programming
Functional logic programming and probabilistic programming have demonstrated the broad benefits of combining laziness (non-strict evaluation with sharing of the results) with non-...

Non-parametric parametricity
Type abstraction and intensional type analysis are features seemingly at odds--type abstraction is intended to guarantee parametricity and representation independence, while type ...

A functional I/O system or, fun for freshman kids
Functional programming languages ought to play a central role in mathematics education for middle schools (age range: 10?14). After all, functional programming is a form of algebr...

Biorthogonality, step-indexing and compiler correctness
We define logical relations between the denotational semantics of a simply typed functional language with recursion and the operational behaviour of low-level programs in a varian...

A theory of typed coercions and its applications
A number of important program rewriting scenarios can be recast as type-directed coercion insertion. These range from more theoretical applications such as coercive subtyping and ...
