Practical Interfaces for Practical Functions

Before we can make the use of formal interfaces routine, we must develop not only the mathematical theory, but also the programming practice. Practice, of course, is developed by working out examples.

In this presentation, I will work out formal interfaces for a number of familiar functions and try to draw out some lessons about writing practical interfaces.

This presentation will refer to my earlier presentation “The Truth of a Procedure” occasionally, but should be understandable to those who missed it. The examples will be given in a notation similar to that of my presentations in previous years, “What is the Basic Interface?” “Locally Atomic Capabilities and How to Count Them,” and “The Shape of a Program.”
