Things I need to internalize by March or so [Oct. 23rd, 2010|08:34 pm]

So how does this look for an oral quals reading list? The idea of the list is to cover "the larger concepts and issues" of my research area, as well as to convey what I've been doing for the last two years. I've read most of them already, but "read once" is a long way from "internalized".

Oh, and:

  • TaPL, like, all of it
  • The first (Substructural Type Systems) and second (Dependent Types) chapters of ATTaPL

I also want to include some kind of standard reference on unification that's not specific to any particular language or system. Maybe this? I read a few things about unification last year as part of our unsuccessful FLOPS paper effort, but I never actually read Martelli and Montanari and probably ought to. Any suggestions?

Oh! And I'm going to have to know something about denotational semantics -- can anyone suggest a single standard reference for that?

Any other glaring omissions?

I'm assuming you don't need to know anything about...

Yeah, for this I don't. I'm not even entirely sure if I want to include the stuff about unification at all, because it doesn't have much to do with what I'm doing now -- but if part of the point of orals is to sum up what I've been doing for the last two years, then it makes sense to include it. And I would like to get back to it at some point. You know, in my copious free time.
