This handbook with exercises reveals in formalisms, hitherto mainly used for hardware and software design and verification, unexpected mathematical beauty. The lambda calculus forms a prototype universal programming language, which in its untyped version is related to Lisp, and was treated in the first author's classic The Lambda Calculus (1984). The formalism has since been extended with types and used in functional programming (Haskell, Clean) and proof assistants (Coq, Isabelle, HOL), used in designing and verifying IT products and mathematical proofs. In this book, the authors focus on three classes of typing for lambda terms: simple types, recursive types ... Read more

Reviews for Lambda Calculus with Types
'The book has a place in undergraduate libraries because of its uniquely comprehensive, if theoretical, treatment of a timely, widely important subject. Recommended.' D. V. Feldman, Choice 'The authors have produced a well-written, organised and comprehensive account of three important type systems. These systems' properties have been rich sources of interest to logicians for many years; their problems are not ... Read more
