The semantics of scheme with future

Moreau, Luc (1996) The semantics of scheme with future At ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP'96). , pp. 146-156.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


We present the formal semantics of future in a Scheme-like language which has both side-effects and first-class continuations. Correctness is established by proving that programs annotated by future have the same observable behaviour as their non-annotated counterparts, even though evaluation may be parallel.
