  • Partial evaluation

    compiler, algorithm (Or “specialisation”) An optimisation technique where the compiler evaluates some subexpressions at compile-time. For example, pow x 0 = 1 pow x n = if even n then pxn2 * pxn2 else x * pow x (n-1) where pxn2 = pow x (n/2) f x = pow x 5 Since n is known […]

  • Partial-fraction

    noun, Algebra. 1. one of the fractions into which a given fraction can be resolved, the sum of such simpler fractions being equal to the given fraction: Partial fractions of 5/(x2−x) are 5/(x−1) and −5/x. noun 1. (maths) one of a set of fractions into which a more complicated fraction can be resolved

  • Partial function

    A function which is not defined for all arguments of its input type. E.g. f(x) = 1/x if x /= 0. The opposite of a total function. In denotational semantics, a partial function f : D -> C may be represented as a total function ft : D’ -> lift(C) where D’ is a superset […]
