The Theory of Classification, Part 13: Template Classes and Genericity

By: Anthony J.H. Simons

Abstract

In this article, Simons explores the consequences of adding generic classes to the Theory of Classification. After looking at some historical notions of polymorphism and type parameters, he examines how to incorporate these into the type-level of the theory, and then looks at how introducing or instantiating type parameters can be combined with the process of deriving subclasses by inheritance.
