Volume 8 of Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) presents some of the latest research results in the implementation of functional programming languages and the practice of functional programming. It contains the peer-reviewed selection of the best articles presented at TFP 2007, the Eighth Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming, which was held in New York City on April 2-4, 2007. This was the first time the TFP symposium was held in the USA and it brought together a truly international milieu of researchers, students, and industry professionals that proudly made this edition of the symposium the largest in TFP history.

The topics covered in this volume include, among others, gradual typing, semantics, memory utilization and performance, hybrid types and contracts, test generation, efficient compilation of web applications, library development, and program correctness. The authors include well known veterans in the field of functional languages as well as newcomers that are quickly becoming well-established. This volume is an essential part of any modern programming languages library. The new results described in this volume are applicable to a wide array of programming languages and readers will benefit from exposure to the latest trends in solving modern Computer Science problems.

The success of TFP symposia represents the growing importance of functional programming and the growing importance of the TFP policy to encourage new and veteran speakers to present their novel work at a friendly forum without first having to go through a strenuous review process. This policy has lead to a series of symposia with a rich diversity of talks from which a selection of publication-ripe articles are chosen for inclusion in a post-symposium peer-reviewed volume as the present one.

Reviews for Trends in Functional Programming Volume 8

Milton Seligman and Rosalyn Darling have done a wonderful job describing the impact a child's disability can have on a family. They deserve special praise for their attention to the frequently overlooked concerns of fathers, siblings, and grandparents. The user-friendly discussion of family systems and the many insightful quotes from family members will make this book valuable to family members and service providers alike. --Donald J. Meyer, MEd, Director, Sibling Support Project, Children's Hospital and Medical Center, Seattle, Washington; editor of Uncommon Fathers: Reflections on Raising a Child with Special Needs . <br> <br> The second edition of Ordinary Families, Special Children continues in the fine tradition of the first. The book, firmly anchored in empirical research, brings the laboratory data alive with commentary by mothers, fathers, and others who love a child with a disability. Seligman and Darling offer a critical look at the literature, blended with human wisdom about coping effectively in the face of a family crisis. --Sandra L. Harris, PhD, Professor and Dean, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey <br> <br> The revised edition of this superb text provides a comprehensive review of the topic which is relevant to an international readership. It contains an extremely readable account of the essential information needed by professionals in order to develop effective working relationships with parents of children with disabilities. It should be on the required reading list for all teachers, social workers, therapists, psychologists andmedical staff concerned with childhood disability. --Garry Hornby, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Hull, England <br> <br>, .. An important work...Its summaries of research and theory provide an excellent overview and introduction to work with families with disabilities. --Diana Garland, Journal of Family Ministry <br>
