On Jones-Optimal Specializers: A Case Study Using Unmix

Johan Gade,

Monday (!), October 30th, 15:15-16:00
DIKU, Universitetsparken 1, room N037


Jones optimality is a criterion for assessing the strength of a program specializer. In this talk, the elements required in a proof of Jones optimality are investigated and the first formal proof for a non-trivial polyvariant specializer (Unmix) is presented. A simplifying element is the use of self-application. Variations of the original criterion are also discussed.

Joint work with Robert Glück.

Scientific host: Andrzej Filinski. Administrative host: Camilla Jensen. All are welcome.
