Structure and interpretation of computer programs by Harold Abelson ( Book )
75 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 2,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs has had a dramatic impact on computer science curricula over the past decade. This long-awaited revision contains changes throughout the text." "There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in the book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the course at MIT since the first edition was published." "A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many new exercises." "In addition, all the programs have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard."--Jacket

Lambda : the ultimate imperative by Guy Lewis Steele ( Book )
4 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report demonstrates how to model the following common programming constructs in terms of an applicative order language similar to LISP: Simple Recursion; Iteratiion; Compound Statements and Expressions; GO TO and Assignment; Continuation-Passing; Escape Expressions; Fluid Variables; and Call by Name, Call by Need, and Call by reference. The models require only (possibly self-referent) lambda application, conditionals, and (rarely) assignment. No complex data structures such as stacks are used. The models are transparent, involving only local syntactic transformations. Some of these models, such as those for GO TO and assignment, are already well known, and appear in the work of Landin, Reynolds, and others. The models for escape expressions, fluid variables, and call by need with the side effects are new. This paper is partly tutorial in intent, gathering all the models together for purposes of context.

The art of the interpreter, or, The modularity complex (parts zero, one and two) by Guy Steele ( Book )
4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We examine the effects of various language design decisions on the programming styles available to a user of the language, with particular emphasis on the ability to incrementally construct modular systems. At each step we exhibit an interactive meta-circular interpreter for the language under consideration. Each new interpreter is the result of an incremental change to a previous interpreter. We explore the consequences of various variable binding disciplines and the introduction of side effects. We find that dynamic scoping is unsuitable for constructing procedural abstractions, but has another role as an agent of modularity, being a structured form of side effect. More general side effects are also found to be necessary to promote modular style. We find that the notion of side effect and the notion of equality (object identity) are mutually constraining; to define one is to define the other. The interpreters we exhibit are all written in a simple dialect of LISP, and all implement LISP-like languages. A subset of these interpreters constitute a partial historical reconstruction of the actual evolution of LISP. (Author)
The revised report on SCHEME, a dialect of LISP by Guy Lewis Steele ( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
SCHEME is a dialect of LISP. It is an expression-oriented, applicative order, interpreter-based language which allows one to manipulate programs as data. It differs from most current dialects of LISP in that it closes all lambda-expressions in the environment of their definition or declaration, rather than in the execution environment. This has the consequence that variables are normally lexically scoped, as in ALGOL. However, in contrast with ALGOL, SCHEME treats procedures as a first-class data type. They can be the values of variables, the returned values of procedures, and components of data structures. Another difference from LISP is that SCHEME is implemented in such a way that tail-recursions execute without net growth of the interpreter stack. The effect of this is that a procedure call behaves like a GOTO, and thus procedure calls can be used to implement iterations, as in PLASMA. A complete 'user manual' for the SCHEME language is given. Some features described here were not documented in the original report on SCHEME (for instance particular macros). Other features were added, changed, or delected as our understanding of certain language issues evolved. Annotations to the manual describe the motivations for these changes
Heuristic techniques in computer aided circuit analysis by Gerald Jay Sussman ( Book )
3 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Whereas other circuit analysis systems rely on classical, formal analysis techniques, EL employs heuristic inspection methods to solve rather complex DC bias circuits. These techniques also give EL the ability to explain any result in terms of its own qualitative reasoning processes. EL's reasoning is based on the concept of a local one-step deduction augmented by various teleological principles and by the concept of a macro-element. Several annotated examples of EL in operation and an explanation of how it works were presented. Also how EL can be extended in several directions, including sinusoidal steady state analysis were discussed. EL is significant not only as a novel approach to circuit analysis but also as an application of Artificial Intelligence techniques to a new and interesting domain
Localization of failures in radio circuits : a study in causal and teleological reasonings by Allen L Brown ( Book )
3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The paper examines some methodologies for diagnosing correctly designed radio circuits which are failing to perform in the intended way because of some faulty component. Particular emphasis is placed on the utility and necessity of good teleological descriptions in successfully executing the task of isolating failing components

Lisp: A Language for Stratified Design by Harold Abelson ( Book )
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We exhibit programs that illustrate the power of Lisp as a language for expressing the design and organization of computational systems. The examples are chosen to highlight the importance of abstraction in program design and to draw attention to the use of procedures to express abstractions. This article exhibits programs that illustrate the power of Lisp as a language for expressing the design and organization of computational systems. The examples are chosen to highlight the importance of abstraction in program design and to draw attention to the use of procedures to express abstractions. Any programming language provides primitive components, means by which these can be combined, and means by which patterns of combination can be named and manipulated as if they were primitive. With appropriate abstractions to separate the specification of components from the details of their implementation we can provide a library of standard components that can be freely interconnected, allowing great flexibility in design

Computer aided evolutionary design for digital integrated systems by Gerald Jay Sussman ( Book )
4 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We propose to develop a computer aided design tool which can help an engineer deal with system evolution from the initial phases of design right through the testing and maintenance phases. We imagine a design system which can function as a junior assistant. It provides a total conversational and graphical environment. It remembers the reasons for design choices and can retrieve and do simple deductions with them. Such a system can provide a designer with information relevant to a proposed modification and can help him understand the consequences of simple modifications by pointing out the structures and functions which will be affected by the modifications. The designer's assistant will maintain a vast amount of such annotation on the structure and function of the system being evolved and will be able to retrieve the appropriate annotation and remind the designer about the features which he installed too long ago to remember, or which were installed by other designers who work with him. We will develop the fundamental principles behind such a designer's assistant and we will construct a prototype system which meets many of these desiderata. (Author)
