If you have a question about this talk, please contact Boris Feigin.

Over the last 10 years, members of the database, programming language and Web communities have developed a nice, purely functional (in parts) query language for tree-structured data called XQuery, including a formal semantics that is a (non-normative) W3C standard. Many people are now intent on adding imperative features so that tree-structured data can also be updated. I’ll present some work on a clean, nice, but not very expressive language called FLUX , and contrast it with the semantics of the W3C update proposal currently under development, focusing on the issue of typechecking.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Programming Research Group Seminar series.
