Summary on Grant Application Form
Recursion is a powerful programming technique in which programs are defined in terms of themselves. For a number of reasons, however, it is often desirable to use structured forms of recursion in programming, in preference to unrestricted recursion. Much previous work in this area has focussed on a recursion operator called fold, and on its associated proof principle called cofusion. In contrast, relatively little attention has been given to the dual recursion operator called unfold, or to its associated proof principle called cofusion. The aim of this grant application is to investigate the practical and theoretical aspects of unfold and cofusion in a variety of different areas.
