About This Book
Behavioral type systems in programming languages support the specification and verification of programs' properties beyond the traditional use of type systems to describe data processing. A major example of such a property is correctness of communication in concurrent and distributed systems, motivated by the importance of structured communication in modern software. Behavioural Types: From Theory to Tools presents programming languages and software tools produced by members of COST Action IC1201: Behavioural Types for Reliable Large-Scale Software Systems, a European research network that was funded from October 2012 to October 2016. As a survey of the most recent developments in the application of behavioral type systems, this text is a valuable reference for researchers in the field as well as an introduction to the subject for graduate students and software developers.
