The best article I've found that really explains church encodings is this one: It's done in a subset of Scheme, though, not Haskell. Apr 14, 2009 - The lambda calculus derives its usefulness from having a sparse syntax and. It isn't necessary for the syntax or semantics to be related to those of the lambda calculus, although they could be. Would motivate their use cases using mathematical examples. Mar 6, 2013 - It's hard to say how much influence Algol had on Lisp syntax and semantics. Scientists and researchers in related fields. Suddenly To my delight, Smalltalk blocks have much in common with the lambda calculus functional programming really taught me to appreciate. Jan 17, 2006 - LISP does, however, capture the notion of recursivity in the same way in which it is captured in the nebulous region between syntax and semantics: atoms are combined to form syntactic constituents which can then be manipulated as by their antecedent or by a wh-phrase (the syntactic representation of a (lambda(x))). It's just easier to Similarly, you become dissatisfied with most languages' syntax for method calling when you grasp Smalltalk's message-passing syntax and semantics. Intuitionistic proofs into typed lambda-terms is a simple instance of an internalization property of a our system lambda-infinity which unifies intuitionistic propositions (types) with lambda-calculus and which is capable of internalizing its own derivations as lambda-terms. I wanted to explain the motivation behind free monads in terms that a programmer would understand and my post explains the topic in terms of creating a syntax tree and interpreting that syntax tree. Feb 16, 2006 - But what got me really thinking was the way holdsDuring takes formulas as arguments, despite the claim that SUMO is written in SUO-KIF, which has pretty traditional first-order syntax and semantics. This binding then forces us to make reference to the notion of c-command, which we can see in the LISP expression as well! It's 100% free, no registration required. Dec 5, 2011 - Now I'm getting into Smalltalk 'for real' and finding that the OO-ness of it is not even the main thing I find compelling: it's the live-ness of it. A simple semantics, and yet it retains sufficient power to represent all computable.
