The VNR concise encyclopedia of mathematics
TLDR
The task was to describe mathematical interrelations as briefly and precisely as possible and to smooth out the access to the specialist literature for as many readers as possible.
The evolution of APL
This paper is a discussion of the evolution of the APL language, and it treats implementations and applications only to the extent that they appear to have exercised a major influence on that
Sorting - a new/old problem
TLDR
APL models of a solution for the generalized sorting problem of alphabetic strings, involving upper- and lower-case alphabets, are presented.
The design of APL
TLDR
The paper gives the rationale for many specific design choices, including the necessary adjuncts for system management, and emphasizes and illustrating the principles underlying its design.
Some uses of { and }
TLDR
From its inception APL has been developed by using it in a succession of areas and this emphasis on application clearly favors practicality and simplicity.
Zero divided by zero
TLDR
This paper gives the reasons for proposing that this quotient of APL be changed to zero, the result of zero divided by zero.
