      Characterizing the evolution of the faint end of the cluster red sequence (RS) galaxy luminosity function (GLF) with redshift is a milestone in understanding galaxy evolution. However, the community is still divided in ...
    • Exceptional Asynchronous Session Types: Session Types without Tiers 

      Fowler, Simon; Lindley, Sam; Morris, J. Garrett; Decova, Sara (Association for Computing Machinery, 2019)
      Session types statically guarantee that communication complies with a protocol. However, most accounts of session typing do not account for failure, which means they are of limited use in real applicationsÐespecially distributed ...
