Partial Evaluation and Automatic Program Generation
by Neil D. Jones, Carsten K. Gomard, Peter Sestoft
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1993
Number of pages: 400
This book is about partial evaluation, a program optimization technique also known as program specialization. It presents general principles for constructing partial evaluators for a variety of programming languages, and it gives examples of applications and numerous references to the literature. Partial evaluation works with program texts rather than mathematical functions: a partial evaluator is an algorithm which, when given a program and some of its input data, produces a so-called residual or specialized program. Running the residual program on the remaining input data will yield the same result as running the original program on all of its input data.

What follows is a working draft of a planned book that seeks to strike a careful balance between developing the theoretical foundations of programming languages and explaining the pragmatic issues involved in their design and implementation.

This book give an introduction to parts of proof theory and related aspects of type theory relevant for the Curry-Howard isomorphism. It can serve as an introduction to any or both of typed lambda-calculus and intuitionistic logic.
