(2016-04)Unhandled exceptions crash programs, so a compile-time check that exceptions are handled should in principle make software more reliable. But designers of some recent languages have argued that the benefits of statically ...
(2015-06)The support for generic programming in modern object-oriented programming languages is awkward and lacks desirable expressive power. We introduce an expressive genericity mechanism that adds expressive power and strengthens ...
(2016-02-13)Real-world applications routinely make authorization decisions based on dynamic computation. Reasoning about dynamically computed authority is challenging. Integrity of the system might be compromised if attackers can ...
(2016-02-12)A reactive information flow (RIF) automaton for a value v specifies (i) allowed uses for v and (ii) the RIF automaton for any value that might be directly or indirectly derived from v. RIF automata thus specify how ...
(2015-12-30)We show that the Kolmogorov extension theorem and the Doob martingale convergence theorem are two aspects of a common generalization, namely a colimit-like construction in a category of Radon spaces and reversible Markov ...
