Description

Developments in Lisp technology have been accelerated by a number of factors, including the increased interest in Artificial Intelligence and the emergence of Common Lisp. Advanced Lisp Technology, the fourth volume in the Advanced Information Processing Technology series, brings together various Japanese researchers working in the field of Lisp technology and reflects the growing interest in parallel and distributed processing. The book is divided into four parts. The first examines Lisp systems design and implementation in a wide variety of parallel and distributed computing environments, which provide the base system with constructs for parallel computation. The second part consists of papers on language features such as evaluation strategy for parallel symbolic computation, extension of first-class continuations for parallel Scheme systems, and lightweight process for real-time symbolic computations. The papers in the third part discuss memory management and garbage collection, and the fourth group of papers consider the programming environment. Graduates, researchers and professional programmers involved with programming language systems, list processing and garbage collection will find this book a valuable compilation of recent research in these fields.
