title = "A Pure And Really Simple Initial Functional Algebraic Language",

abstract = "A medium sized algebra system supporting rational functions and some elementary functions, which is written in the purely functional subset of LISP is described. This is used to investigate the practicability of writing systems in a no-side effect, no property list, pure style. In addition, using the experimental LISP system in Bath that allows for full environment closures, ways have been discovered in which eager (applicative) evaluation and lazy (normal) evaluation strategies can be applied to computer algebra. The system is demonstrated on some well known sample programs.",
