Compiling Lambda Calculus By Nils M Holm
Paperback: $34.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book introduces the reader to the theory and interpretation of lambda calculus. It first describes lambda calculus as a formal term rewriting system and outlines some simple applications, like... More > Church numerals, the Y combinator, etc. The next part of the book defines and implements a tiny subset of the Scheme programming language and then extends it iteratively until it can be used as the basis for a real-world implementation. This part covers two models of interpretation as well as the transformation of lambda calculus to abstract machine code and portable C code. The final part of the book explores a language that resembles lambda calculus more closely, by supporting partial function application. The compilers and languages introduced in the book are implemented in Scheme and provided under the Creative Commons Zero license (a.k.a. Public Domain). Intended audience: compiler writers and everyone interested in the theoretical background of LISPy languages.< Less

What happens to the materiality of language in the digital medium? This thesis articulates a body of work highly invested in trans-mediation: a back and forth process between the physical and the... More > digital media to create random arrangements of visual and auditory immersive experiences. A reflective methodology collects consumer packages in an attempt to keep a record of the environment. A labour intensive approach rejects all reflection and appropriates these packages to produce a body of work. This practice is compared and contrasted to the works of artists and designers such as Tom Friedman, Tara Donovan, Richard Rhys, Polly Apbfelbaum, Allan McCollum... Through the lens of concrete poetry and conceptual art a highly formal approach is articulated in the work. The content of written language is the form of the word, the content of oral language is the sound of the utterance. The work translates from one content to the other through a seamless integration of digital and physical processes.< Less

More > education. Functional Programming is an approach that focuses on the evaluation of expressions. Programs are formed by combining functions. Most functional programming constructs are free of side effects, which allows to examine programs formally and prove properties of algorithms. This book provides a step-by-step introduction to functional programming in Scheme. It covers various aspects of the language like data types, conditions, recursion, list processing, lexical scoping, closures, function definitions, dynamic typing, etc. By means of numerous examples of varying complexity, it takes the reader on an entertaining and informative tour through the language.< Less

More > decides to speak its mind. A mythological being forgets his pocket watch at home. Apóstrofe, Apostrophe, a strange collection of seemingly unconnected poems, attempts to establish a dialogue between two distinct languages, English and Portuguese, and to redefine the borders of poesy, in its multiple metamorphoses and linguistic varieties. The insular poetry — insular in form as well as in content — of the book’s first section, “North”, is counterposed by a more condensed, formally competent poesia, albeit less rational and more onanistic, presented in the book’s second section, “Sul”.< Less
