Programming frequently requires that problems are broken down into subproblems and then each subproblem solved independently. These solutions may then be combined to provide a solution to the original problem. Partial evaluation is a serious attempt to tackle this issue, allowing the programmer to write programs in a highly interpretive style without paying the price in efficiency. This thesis covers the theory and practice behind practical evaluation.

Review quote

"...a fascinating blend of a long pragmatic tradition in the art of writing partial evaluators with ML-style polymorphism and a dash of categorical concepts. The writing is exceptionally good and so I recommend this book also as a fine place to learn about partial evaluation." David B. Benson, Mathematical Reviews
