Automatic Staged Compilation

Here is a paper I recently came across which was posted on lambda-the-ultimate.org. The paper is titled: Automatic Staged Compilation (2005). It’s a dissertation written by Matthai Philipose of the University of Washington. It seems like an interesting concept. I wonder if we’ll see any real implementations in the near future? Here is an except [...]

Simulating Evolution – How Structures Emerge via Iteration

“In this article I want to show how structure emerges out of iteration. Specifically, I want to create a very simple model of Darwinian evolution and demonstrate with simulations and mathematical proof that patterns emerge naturally ….. when stable patterns emerge in some iterated system, it’s possible to build new systems on top of the [...]

Lambda Calculus and its Role in Computer Science

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was some sort of mathematical method of manipulating computer code similar to how one does Algebra? In most cases this would be really impractical but interesting nonetheless, especially if it could be mapped into an actual computer language. Lambda Calculus can fill this role, of providing an algebra-like system [...]

A Few “Must Read” Computer Science Books

There are a ton of CS books out there; how do you know which ones to actually sit down and read? The answer could depend on the topic you wish to study and learn more about. I have a fairly large collection of links to well-reviewed Computer Science books that seem to be commonly recommended. [...]
