Date: 2009-04-02 Time: 11:45 Room: BBL room 471 ----+++ Speaker: Xavier Pardonnet ----+++ Title: Functional Self-Adjusting Programming ----+++ Abstract The idea of self-adjusting programs comes from the observation that many applications need to interact with data that changes slightly or slowly over time. With standard computation techniques, a program has to recompute the result from scratch, for each and every modification to the initial data. Wouldn't it be nice if the program could re-use part of its previous computation to modify only the parts of the result that has to change? This is what self-adjusting programming tries to achieve. In this talk I'm going to present the work of Umut Acar (http://ttic.uchicago.edu/~umut/), who has come up with a nice, elegant and efficient solution to bring this mechanism in the functional programming world.
