A Formal Description Of A Type Checking Algorithm

By: Majid Naeem, Chris Harrison


In object-oriented languages, a subclass enables reuse of the code of its superclass and relies on the type-correctness of the corresponding source code. A particular task associated with statically type checking an object-oriented language is designing the type checking rules which ensure that methods provided in a superclass will continue to be type-correct when inherited in a subclass.
