Notions of Computation and Monads
, 1991
"... The i.calculus is considered a useful mathematical tool in the study of programming languages, since programs can be identified with Iterms. However, if one goes further and uses bnconversion to prove equivalence of programs, then a gross simplification is introduced (programs are identified with ..."

with total functions from calues to values) that may jeopardise the applicability of theoretical results, In this paper we introduce calculi. based on a categorical semantics for computations, that provide a correct basis for proving equivalence of programs for a wide range of notions of computation.
A Behavioral Notion of Subtyping
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1994
"... The use of hierarchy is an important component of objectoriented design. Hierarchy allows the use of type families, in which higher level supertypes capture the behavior that all of their subtypes have in common. For this methodology to be effective, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of ..."

is easy for programmers to use. The subtype relation is based on the specifications of the sub and supertypes; the paper presents a way of specifying types that makes it convenient to define the subtype relation. The paper also discusses the ramifications of this notion of subtyping on the design of type
NATURAL BOUNDARIES AND THE CORRECT NOTION OF INTEGRAL MOMENTS OF L–FUNCTIONS
"... Abstract. It is shown that a large class of multiple Dirichlet series which arise naturally in the study of moments of L–functions have natural boundaries. As a remedy we consider a new class of multiple Dirichlet series whose elements have nice properties: a functional equation and meromorphic cont ..."

Hierarchical correctness proofs for distributed algorithms
, 1987
"... Abstract: We introduce the inputoutput automaton, a simple but powerful model of computation in asynchronous distributed networks. With this model we are able to construct modular, hierarchical correctness proofs for distributed algorithms. We de ne this model, and give aninteresting example of how ..."

Perspectives on Program Analysis
, 1996
"... eing analysed. On the negative side, the semantic correctness of the analysis is seldom established and therefore there is often no formal justification for the program transformations for which the information is used. The semantics based approach [1; 5] is often based on domain theory in the form ..."

, and for neededness analysis it might perform a strictness analysis and use the strictness information for neededness (or make use of the "absence" notion from projection analysis and attempt to discover the di#erence). On the positive side, this usually gives rise to provably correct analyses, although
Algorithmic mechanism design
 Games and Economic Behavior
, 1999
"... We consider algorithmic problems in a distributed setting where the participants cannot be assumed to follow the algorithm but rather their own selfinterest. As such participants, termed agents, are capable of manipulating the algorithm, the algorithm designer should ensure in advance that the agen ..."

that the agents ’ interests are best served by behaving correctly. Following notions from the field of mechanism design, we suggest a framework for studying such algorithms. Our main technical contribution concerns the study of a representative task scheduling problem for which the standard mechanism design tools

Consensus in the presence of partial synchrony
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1988
"... The concept of partial synchrony in a distributed system is introduced. Partial synchrony lies between the cases of a synchronous system and an asynchronous system. In a synchronous system, there is a known fixed upper bound A on the time required for a message to be sent from one processor to ano ..."

In another version of partial synchrony, the bounds are known, but are only guaranteed to hold starting at some unknown time T, and protocols must be designed to work correctly regardless of when time
The strength of weak learnability
 Machine Learning
, 1990
"... Abstract. This paper addresses the problem of improving the accuracy of an hypothesis output by a learning algorithm in the distributionfree (PAC) learning model. A concept class is learnable (or strongly learnable) if, given access to a Source of examples of the unknown concept, the learner with h ..."

The concept class is weakly learnable if the learner can produce an hypothesis that performs only slightly better than random guessing. In this paper, it is shown that these two
A Survey of Program Slicing Techniques
 JOURNAL OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES
, 1995
"... A program slice consists of the parts of a program that (potentially) affect the values computed at some point of interest, referred to as a slicing criterion. The task of computing program slices is called program slicing. The original definition of a program slice was presented by Weiser in 197 ..."

in 1979. Since then, various slightly different notions of program slices have been proposed, as well as a number of methods to compute them. An important distinction is that between a static and a dynamic slice. The former notion is computed without making assumptions regarding a program's input
