The report gives a defining description of the programming language Scheme. Scheme is a statically scoped and properly tail-recursive dialect of the Lisp programming language invented by Guy Lewis Steele, Jr. and Gerald Jay Sussman. It was designed to have an exceptionally clear and simple semantics and few different ways to form expressions. A wide variety of programming paradigms, including imperative, functional, and message passing styles, find convenient expression in Scheme.The… 
Revised6 Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme
TLDR
Scheme demonstrates that a very small number of rules for forming expressions, with no restrictions on how they are composed, suffice to form a practical and efficient programming language that is flexible enough to support most of the major programming paradigms in use today.
Revised Report on the Kernel Programming Language
TLDR
Kernel is a statically scoped and properly tail-recursive dialect of Lisp, descended from Scheme, designed to be simpler and more general than Scheme, with an exceptionally clear, simple, and versatile semantics.
Advanced Macrology and the Implementation of Typed Scheme
TLDR
The design and implementation of Typed Scheme is presented using the advanced language construction features of PLT Scheme's language framework and their use with a case study is demonstrated.
Semantics of the reFLect language
TLDR
It is proved that the reduction semantics for this language is strongly normalizing and confluent, and a set-theoretical denotational semantics for the language is given, which provides the basis for developing the semantics of reFLect's extension of higher order logic and proving its soundness.
Little Languages and their Programming Environments Rice University Technical Report TR 99-350
TLDR
It is argued that an embedded little language should inherit not only the host language's syntactic and semantic structure, but also its programming environment, and represents a substantial improvement upon current practice.
Well-Shaped Macros
TLDR
This paper introduces a modified macro system that allows a Scheme implementation to determine whether macro definitions and programs are syntactically well-formed and introduces a system for specifying and restricting the class of shapes that a macro can transform.
Growing a Syntax
TLDR
This paper is the first implementation of a modular hygienic macro system based on parsing expression grammars for the Fortress programming language, and is a flexible system that allows not only to support new language extensions, but also to move many constructs of the core language into libraries.
Compiler support for lightweight concurrency
TLDR
The IR’s continuations and thread manipulation primitives are described and illustrated with examples of various concurrency operations and an operational semantics is defined to specify the operations precisely and to provide a tool for reasoning about the correctness of implementations.
A Transformation-Based Foundation for Semantics-Directed Code Generation
TLDR
This dissertation proposes a transformation-based foundation for deriving compilers from semantic specifications in the form of four rules that give apriori advice for staging, and allow explicit compiler derivation that would be less succinct with partial evaluation.
Little Languages and Their Programming Environments
TLDR
It is argued that an embedded little language should inherit not only the host language's syntactic and semantic structure, but also its programming environment, and represents a substantial improvement upon current practice.

The Revised Report on SCHEME: A Dialect of LISP.
TLDR
SCHEME is an expression-oriented, applicative order, interpreter-based language which allows one to manipulate programs as data which differs from most current dialects of LISP in that it closes all lambda-expressions in the environment of their definition or declaration, rather than in the execution environment.
Scheme: A Interpreter for Extended Lambda Calculus
TLDR
A completely annotated interpreter for SCHEME, written in MacLISP, is presented to acquaint programmers with the tricks of the trade of implementing non-recursive control structures in a recursive language like LISP.

Syntactic extensions in the programming language LISP
TLDR
A new macro declaration tool is designed that addresses each of the five problems from which the traditional tools suffer, and a new macro expansion algorithm is developed that eliminates the capturing problem.
Definitional interpreters for higher-order programming languages
TLDR
The definition of a simple applicative programming language by means of an interpreter written in a similar language is considered, and the treatment of imperative features such as jumps and assignment is discussed.
