Overview We saw in the previous post that π-calculus is a process calculus which is dependent on a theory of names; it is therefore said that it is not a closed theory. The ρ-calculus is an asynchronous message-passing calculus built on a notion of quoting; it is a...

Overview The first post in this series covered grammar and operational semantics for λ-calculus. Our interest in π-calculus lies in the fact that it is the precursor of ρ-calculus. It is a model of concurrent computation, or more specifically, a process...

Overview Greg Meredith has been teaching a weekly course called Introduction to the Design of Computational Calculi (DoCC) to explain the foundations of mathematical models of grammar, how computational calculi are used in the RChain project, and how to design...

Setting up RNode on a VPS or a cloud service like Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 is desirable for users who are not able to set port forwarding or UPNP due to various network setups, or for users who might want to run RNode for long periods (via screen). This is a...
