Conception of Adaptive Programming Languages

A.V. de Freitas and J.J. Neto (Brazil)


Adaptive devices, self-modifying devices, adaptive automata, adaptive programming language.


Adaptive devices show the characteristic of dynamically change themselves in response to input stimuli with no interference of external agents. Occasional changes in behaviour are immediately detected by the devices, which right away react spontaneously to them. Chronologically such devices derived from researches in the field of formal languages and automata. However, formalism spurred applications in several other fields. Based on the operation of adaptive automata, the elementary ideas generating programming adaptive languages are presented.
