Experimental Languages Group

Loyola Marymount University

Ray Toal, Director

A working group of Loyola Marymount University Computer Science

The Experimental Languages Group (xlg) does research and development on programming language design. Rather than asking questions about design patterns for solving problems, the group is interested in patterns of language design and questions about languages themselves, such as:

In addition to studying, classifying, and suggesting improvements to existing languages, the group collaborates on the design and implementation of new research languages.

The group is also looking into alternative methods for specifying syntax and semantics, novel approaches to compiler generation, machine-assisted program correctness proofs, and efficient implementations.
