    The totient function is defined for positive integers as:

  • Projective Programming

    by Vanessa McHale | Haskell

    I read a recent Functional Pearl by Hinze and this inspired me to write up an example of projective programming and its motivation in logic/model theory.

  • Performance Implications of FP in ATS

    by Vanessa McHale | ATS

    Here I would like to present benchmarks associated with my past post comparing different methods of summing the first \( n \) numbers. In each case, we benchmarked sum(200), that is, \( \sum_{i=1}^{200} i \).

  • Variations on a Theme II

    by Vanessa McHale | ATS

    A set of curated examples to show ATS' capacities for functional and imperative programming, wherein we sum the numbers \(1..n\) many times:

  • Curry vs Uncurry on Hackage

    by Vanessa McHale | Haskell

    This post was inspired by a curious question on Twitter: is curry or uncurry more common in Haskell code?
