Nineteenth Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 2004)

Invited Paper: Self-Adjusting Computation (at LICS 2004)

Authors: Robert Harper

Abstract

A static algorithm is one that computes the result of a query about the output for a single, fixed input. For example, a static sorting algorithm is one that takes as input a set of keys, and permits queries about the relative order of these keys according to some ordering relation. A dynamic, or incremental, algorithm is one that permits queries about the output to be interleaved with operations that incrementally modify the input. For example, a dynamic sorting algorithm is one that would permit insertion or deletion of keys to be interleaved with queries about their relative ordering.
