1 The concept of dependent types
Dependent Types in Programming abstract in APPSEM'2000
1.2 Type Theory
1.3 Illative Combinatory Logic
To see how Illative CombinatoryLogic deals with dependent types, see combinator G described in Systems of Illative Combinatory Logic complete for first-order propositional and predicate calculus by Henk Barendregt, Martin Bunder, Wil Dekkers. It seems to me that the dependent type construct of Epigram corresponds to in Illative Combinatory Logic. I think e.g. the followings should correspond to each other:
2 Dependently typed languages
Epigram is a full dependently typed programming language see especially
- Epigram Tutorial by Conor McBride
- and Why dependent types matter by Thorsten Altenkirch, Conor McBride and James McKinna).
Dependent types (of this language) also provide a not-forgetful concept of views (already mentioned in the Haskell Future; the connection between these concepts is described in p. 32 of Epigram Tutorial (section 4.6 Patterns Forget; Matching Is Remembering).
