An Architecture for Combinator Graph Reduction
by Philip J. Koopman, Jr.
Publisher: Academic Press 1990
Number of pages: 176
The results of cache-simulation experiments with an abstract machine for reducing combinator graphs are presented. The abstract machine, called TIGRE, exhibits reduction rates that, for similar kinds of combinator graphs on similar kinds of hardware, compare favorably with previously reported techniques.
