Copenhagen Programming Language Seminar
In this talk I present the Delphin programming language, which is a functional programming language supporting both higher-order abstract syntax and dependent types. Higher-order abstract syntax, or HOAS, refers to the technique of representing variables of an object language using variables of a meta language, which leads to more concise and elegant encodings than first-order alternatives. Dependent types allow one to represent complex data (such as derivations in various logics) and enforce more properties of programs than possible using only simple types.
