Project description

Mastering the complexity of software systems is an ongoing challenge in computer systems and the area of programming and modeling languages in particular. Purely Functional Programming (PFP) is widely recognized for reducing complexity. Unfortunately, support for side-effects, notably in a modular way, is an essential weakness of PFP. This project develops PFP techniques for tackling side-effects in highly modular software.
