Yonezawa group is interested in a broad range of ideas around programming languages from theory through implementation to applications. As a computer processes information according to a program, the research of programming languages essentially comes up to the one of the general notion of computation.
Recent research in the laboratory has included these subjects:
These subjects have been studied from a variety of viewpoints. Our research interest is not only in language tools such as a compiler and an interpreter, but also in language systems such as a library and a virtual machine. Our outcomes include:
They have been international contributions to computer science.
The laboratory has high performance parallel machines (14 to 32CPUs) connected in a fast network (1 to 2Gbit/sec) to support those research (see Facilities). A shared memory parallel machine (64CPUs) and a workstation cluster (256CPUs) in the department of computer science are also available from the laboratory.
A student is supported to communicate with first class researchers in other faculties and in both domestic and foreign universities. Many students have studied in a foreign research institution.
The members of the group are Akinori Yonezawa, Eijiro Sumii, three postdoctoral researchers, seven doctor course students, ten master course students, and five senior students.
