Row and Bounded Polymorphism via Disjoint Polymorphism

Authors: Ningning Xie, Bruno C. d. S. Oliveira, Xuan Bi, and Tom Schrijvers

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 166, 34th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2020)


Abstract
Polymorphism and subtyping are important features in mainstream OO languages. The most common way to integrate the two is via 𝖥_{< :} style bounded quantification. A closely related mechanism is row polymorphism, which provides an alternative to subtyping, while still enabling many of the same applications. Yet another approach is to have type systems with intersection types and polymorphism. A recent addition to this design space are calculi with disjoint intersection types and disjoint polymorphism. With all these alternatives it is natural to wonder how they are related. This paper provides an answer to this question. We show that disjoint polymorphism can recover forms of both row polymorphism and bounded polymorphism, while retaining key desirable properties, such as type-safety and decidability. Furthermore, we identify the extra power of disjoint polymorphism which enables additional features that cannot be easily encoded in calculi with row polymorphism or bounded quantification alone. Ultimately we expect that our work is useful to inform language designers about the expressive power of those common features, and to simplify implementations and metatheory of feature-rich languages with polymorphism and subtyping.

The Dynamic Practice and Static Theory of Gradual Typing

Authors: Michael Greenberg

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 136, 3rd Summit on Advances in Programming Languages (SNAPL 2019)


Abstract
We can tease apart the research on gradual types into two `lineages': a pragmatic, implementation-oriented dynamic-first lineage and a formal, type-theoretic, static-first lineage. The dynamic-first lineage’s focus is on taming particular idioms - `pre-existing conditions' in untyped programming languages. The static-first lineage’s focus is on interoperation and individual type system features, rather than the collection of features found in any particular language. Both appear in programming languages research under the name "gradual typing", and they are in active conversation with each other. What are these two lineages? What challenges and opportunities await the static-first lineage? What progress has been made so far?

Typed First-Class Traits

Authors: Xuan Bi and Bruno C. d. S. Oliveira

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 109, 32nd European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2018)


Abstract
Many dynamically-typed languages (including JavaScript, Ruby, Python or Racket) support first-class classes, or related concepts such as first-class traits and/or mixins. In those languages classes are first-class values and, like any other values, they can be passed as an argument, or returned from a function. Furthermore first-class classes support dynamic inheritance: i.e. they can inherit from other classes at runtime, enabling programmers to abstract over the inheritance hierarchy. In contrast, type system limitations prevent most statically-typed languages from having first-class classes and dynamic inheritance. This paper shows the design of SEDEL: a polymorphic statically-typed language with first-class traits, supporting dynamic inheritance as well as conventional OO features such as dynamic dispatching and abstract methods. To address the challenges of type-checking first-class traits, SEDEL employs a type system based on the recent work on disjoint intersection types and disjoint polymorphism. The novelty of SEDEL over core disjoint intersection calculi are source level features for practical OO programming, including first-class traits with dynamic inheritance, dynamic dispatching and abstract methods. Inspired by Cook and Palsberg's work on the denotational semantics for inheritance, we show how to design a source language that can be elaborated into Alpuim et al.'s F_{i} (a core polymorphic calculus with records supporting disjoint polymorphism). We illustrate the applicability of SEDEL with several example uses for first-class traits, and a case study that modularizes programming language interpreters using a highly modular form of visitors.

The Essence of Nested Composition

Authors: Xuan Bi, Bruno C. d. S. Oliveira, and Tom Schrijvers

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 109, 32nd European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2018)


Abstract
Calculi with disjoint intersection types support an introduction form for intersections called the merge operator, while retaining a coherent semantics. Disjoint intersections types have great potential to serve as a foundation for powerful, flexible and yet type-safe and easy to reason OO languages. This paper shows how to significantly increase the expressive power of disjoint intersection types by adding support for nested subtyping and composition, which enables simple forms of family polymorphism to be expressed in the calculus. The extension with nested subtyping and composition is challenging, for two different reasons. Firstly, the subtyping relation that supports these features is non-trivial, especially when it comes to obtaining an algorithmic version. Secondly, the syntactic method used to prove coherence for previous calculi with disjoint intersection types is too inflexible, making it hard to extend those calculi with new features (such as nested subtyping). We show how to address the first problem by adapting and extending the Barendregt, Coppo and Dezani (BCD) subtyping rules for intersections with records and coercions. A sound and complete algorithmic system is obtained by using an approach inspired by Pierce's work. To address the second problem we replace the syntactic method to prove coherence, by a semantic proof method based on logical relations. Our work has been fully formalized in Coq, and we have an implementation of our calculus.

Typed First-Class Traits (Artifact)

Authors: Xuan Bi and Bruno C. d. S. Oliveira

Published in: DARTS, Volume 4, Issue 3, Special Issue of the 32nd European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2018)


Abstract
This artifact contains the prototype Haskell implementation of SEDEL, with support for first-class traits, as described in the companion paper. This artifact also contains the source code of the case study on "Anatomy of Programming Languages", illustrating how effective SEDEL is in terms of modularizing programming language features. For comparison, it also includes a vanilla Haskell implementation of the case study without any code reuse.
