Joint International Conferences, RTA and TLCA 2014, Held as Part of the Vienna Summer of Logic, VSL 2014, Vienna, Austria, July 14-17, 2014, Proceedings
Author: Gilles Dowek
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Joint 25th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications, RTA 2014, and 12th International Conference on Typed Lambda-Calculi and Applications, TLCA 2014, held as part of the Vienna Summer of Logic, VSL 2014, in Vienna, Austria, in July 2014. The 28 revised full papers and 3 short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 87 submissions. The papers provide research results on all aspects of rewriting and typed lambda calculi, ranging from theoretical and methodological issues to applications in various contexts. They address a wide variety of topics such as algorithmic aspects, implementation, logic, types, semantics, and programming.
This text is the first comprehensive presentation of reduction semantics in one volume; it also introduces the first reliable and easy-to-use tool set for such forms of semantics. Software engineers have long known that automatic tool support is critical for rapid prototyping and modeling, and this book is addressed to the working semantics engineer (graduate student or professional language designer). The book comes with a prototyping tool suite to develop, explore, test, debug, and publish semantic models of programming languages. With PLT Redex, semanticists can formulate models as grammars and reduction models on their computers with the ease of paper and pencil. The text first presents a framework for the formulation of language models, focusing on equational calculi and abstract machines, then introduces PLT Redex, a suite of software tools for expressing these models as PLT Redex models. Finally, experts describe a range of models formulated in Redex. PLT Redex comes with the PLT Scheme implementation, available free at http://www.plt-scheme.org/. Readers can download the software and experiment with Redex as they work their way through the book.

Category: Computer programming
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 9th European Symposium on Programming, ESOP 2000, held as part of ETAPS 2000 in Berlin, Germany in March/April 2000. The 27 revised full papers presented together with one invited paper were carefully reviewed and selected from 84 submissions. Among the topics addressed are language translation, coordination languages, typed languages, logic programs, Java, C-programming, type systems, language continuations, programming calculi, programming theory, mobile processes, interprocedural program analysis, flow analysis, etc.
