Download Funktionale Programmierung: Sprachdesign und by Peter Pepper, Petra Hofstedt PDF

By Peter Pepper, Petra Hofstedt

Dieses Werk befasst sich mit Theorie und Praxis der modernen Funktionalen Programmierung. Dabei geht es vor allem um Fragen des Sprachdesigns und der zugehörigen Programmiertechniken. Viele der behandelten Konzepte weisen aber weit über die Funktionalen Sprachen hinaus, weil sie für alle Arten von Programmiersprachen correct sind.

Im Vordergrund stehen die Ideen und Techniken einer eleganten, sicheren und produktiven shape der Programmierung, die heute in Sprachen wie ML, HASKELL oder OPAL schon weitgehend möglich sind. Die Autoren gehen aber über den Rahmen der heute verfügbaren Sprachen hinaus und präsentieren Konzepte und Methoden, die erst in den Sprachen der nächsten iteration verfügbar sein werden.

Die konkret behandelten Themen sind vielschichtig: Zum einen werden fortgeschrittene Programmiertechniken vorgestellt, wie z.B. die Verwendung unendlicher Datenstrukturen, Parser als Funktionen höherer Ordnung, die Lösung von Gleichungssystemen durch Fixpunktbildung usw. Es wird gezeigt, dass sich damit vielfältige Arten von Problemen auch aus der Numerischen Mathematik kompakt und stylish lösen lassen.

Es werden aber auch fortgeschrittene Sprachkonzepte diskutiert, wie z.B. systematische Modularisierung oder besonders ausdrucksstarke und versatile Formen der Typisierung. Besonderes Gewicht legt das Buch auf die Integration der Funktionalen Programmierung mit den Paradigmen der objektorientierten, der nebenläufigen und der parallelen Programmierung. In diesem Zusammenhang wird speziell auch die Bedeutung von Monaden analysiert und kritisch hinterfragt.

Das Buch wendet sich an Leser, die bereits Grundkenntnisse in der Funktionalen Programmierung besitzen und jetzt ihre Programmierfertigkeit verbessern möchten und tiefer in die theoretischen Grundlagen vordringen wollen.

Download Coloured Petri Nets: Basic Concepts, Analysis Methods and by Kurt Jensen PDF

By Kurt Jensen

This e-book offers a coherent description of the theoretical and functional aspects
of colored Petri Nets (CP-nets or CPN). It exhibits how CP-nets were developed
- from being a promising theoretical version to being a full-fledged language
for the layout, specification, simulation, validation and implementation of
large software program structures (and different platforms within which people and/or computers
communicate via a few roughly formal rules). The book
contains the formal definition of CP-nets and the mathematical thought behind
their research equipment. even if, it's been the goal to put in writing the ebook in
such a fashion that it additionally turns into beautiful to readers who're extra in
applications than the underlying arithmetic. which means a wide a part of the
book is written in a method that is in the direction of an engineering textbook (or a users'
manual) than it's to a standard textbook in theoretical machine technological know-how. The book
consists of 3 separate volumes.

The first quantity defines the internet version (i.e., hierarchical CP-nets) and the
basic techniques (e.g., the various behavioural homes resembling deadlocks, fairness
and domestic markings). It supplies an in depth presentation of many smaIl examples
and a short review of a few business purposes. It introduces the formal
analysis equipment. FinaIly, it features a description of a collection of CPN tools
which aid the sensible use of CP-nets. lots of the fabric during this quantity is
application orientated. the aim of the quantity is to educate the reader how to
construct CPN types and the way to examine those by way of simulation.

The moment quantity incorporates a distinctive presentation of the speculation in the back of the
formal research equipment - specifically incidence graphs with equivalence
classes and place/transition invariants. It additionally describes how those research methods
are supported by way of desktop instruments. elements of this quantity are quite theoretical
while different components are program orientated. the aim of the amount is to teach
the reader the right way to use the formal research tools. it will no longer unavoidably require
a deep knowing of the underlying mathematical thought (although such
knowledge will in fact be a help).

The 3rd quantity features a designated description of a variety of industrial
applications. the aim is to record crucial principles and experiences
from the initiatives - in a manner that's important for readers who don't yet
have own adventure with the development and research of huge CPN diagrams.
Another function is to illustrate the feasibility of utilizing CP-nets and the
CPN instruments for such tasks.
