Context: Dynamically-typed languages cannot take advantage of static
type information. In this context we would like to study
the benefit of the introduction of static types *annotations* on
library design and general robustness.
The benefits can be at the level of the robustness (bug
identification), but also tools (IDE) and support for assembly
in case of JIT.

The PhD grant is financed in the context of the Safe Python project
therefore the Ph.D. will have to work in contact
do we with the project partners and help in the context of some deliverables.

The following tasks have to be done:

        - RPython is not formally defined. One of the first task will
be to define the formal semantic of RPython.
        One approach is to write a RPython interpreter based on an
operational semantics and to compare the output
        with the RPython interpreter. We will certainly use PLT redex
which is a domain-specific language to specify
        and debug operational semantics.

        - We may use the abstract syntax tree of PyLint and use the
Frama-C infrastructure. We will also consider to
        build a Python parser based on petitParser.

        - Define of some default metrics may also be necessary for the
SafePython project. Their definition should
        be trivial on ASTs.

        - Analysis of the benefits of static typing for RPython. One
idea is to study the existing python libraries
        and analyze the "distance" to the RPython subset.

        - Exploring type checking in presence of inconsistent type annotations.

        - Since we are developing Pharo and that static type
annotation are important to
        support C or assembly generation, we would like to apply the
same technique to Pharo:
                - define a syntax to support type annotation (reuse
the one developed by Pleaid team member)
                - perform some analysis of existing library.

Skills and Profile

        You must hold a Master's in computer science, control
engineering, mathematics, scientific computation or an equivalent
        Nationality is not taken into consideration.
        Knowledge in programming language design.
        Object-oriented programming with knowledge of Smalltalk and
Python are a plus.
