LISP, Lore, and Logic: An Algebraic View of LISP Programming, Foundations, and Applications

by W. Richard Stark

Springer | February 20, 1990 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
Here is a presentation of LISP which is both practical and theoretical. For the practical, the syntax of the language, the programming styles, and the semantics of computation are carefully developed. For the theoretical, the algebra of interpreters, the lambda calculus as a foundation for LISP, and the algebraic significance of LISP''s approach to artificial intelligence are discussed. As the title suggests, the book reaches beyond the technical side of LISP to present colorful applications, historical comments and quotations, computational philosophy, consequences of LISP''s exceptional power, and much more. The material has been designed to appeal to a variety of readers, from the bright freshman to the practicing professional, and from computer scientists and mathematicians to chemists, engineers, and philosophers.

From Our Editors

Stark goes beyond a discussion of the programming and theory behind the language LISP to present colorful applications, bits of history, computational philosophy, and consequences of LISP's exceptional power. Includes examples and exercises
