Over 25 implementations of diierent functional languages are benchmarked using the same program, a oating-point intensive application taken from molecular biology. The principal aspects studied are compile time and execution time for the various implementations that were benchmarked. An important consideration is how the program can be modiied and tuned to… (More)
Over 20 implementations of different functional languages are compared using one program. Aspects studied are compile time and execution time. Another important point is how the program can be modified and tuned to obtain maximal performance on each language implementation. Finally, an interesting question is whether laziness is or is not beneficial for… (More)
We determine the 2-modular and 3-modular character tables of the sporadic simple Harada-Norton group and its automorphism group.
