A Modular Calculus for the Average Cost of Data Structuring

Vendor: Springer



This book introduces the first programming language for which average-case time analysis of its programs is guaranteed to be modular. The main time measure currently used for real-time languages (worst-case time) is well-known not to be modular in general, which makes average-case analysis notoriously difficult. Schellekens includes sample programs as well as derivations of the average-case time of these programs to illustrate this radically different approach.
