Back to Working in DrScheme. On to Symbols and Lists.
This outline is also available in PDF.
Held: Wednesday, 30 August 2006
Summary: Today we begin your exploration of the Scheme programming language (and of algorithm development) in earnest.

Notes:
Overview:
naturallanguages can be ambiguous. At the very least, they have many similar structures that are interpreted very differently. Consider the classic pair of
(+ 2 3 4) (sqrt 4) (expt 2 3)
+
: Sum its parameters.
*
: Compute the product of its parameters.

: Subtract the second parameter from the first.
(sqrt val)
: Compute the square root of val.
(expt v p)
: Compute v^{p}.
(abs v)
: Compute the absolute value of v.
(max v1 v2 ... vn)
: Determine the largest of the given values.
(min v1 v2 ... vn)
: Determine the smallest of the given values.
lambda
that you'll
learn about soon was just a hmmm ... that sounds interesting, I'll put it influke.

Disclaimer:
I usually create these pages on the fly
, which means that I rarely
proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details.
It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for
more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
