Description:
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.

This book is an attempt to describe a bit of the programming languages zoo. We use each of the particular languages to introduce fundamental notions related to the design and the implementation of general purpose programming languages.

This book applies the deductive method to programming by affiliating programs with the abstract mathematical theories. Specification of these theories, algorithms and theorems and lemmas describing their properties are presented together.
