A typed model of strategic term rewriting is developed. The key innovation is that generic. The calculus traversal is covered. To this end, we define a typed rewriting calculus S ′ γ employs a manysorted type system extended by designated generic strategy types γ. We consider two generic strategy types, namely the types of typepreserving and typeunifying strategies. S ′ γ offers traversal combinators to construct traversals or schemes thereof from manysorted and generic strategies. The traversal combinators model different forms of onestep traversal, that is, they process the immediate subterms of a given term without anticipating any scheme of recursion into terms. To inhabit generic types, we need to add a fundamental combinator to lift a manysorted strategy s to a generic type γ. This step is called strategy extension. The semantics of the corresponding combinator states that s is only applied if the type of the term at hand fits, otherwise the extended strategy fails. This approach dictates that the semantics of strategy application must be typedependent to a certain extent. Typed strategic term rewriting with coverage of generic term traversal is a simple but expressive model of generic programming. It has applications in program

In this paper we present a functional language supporting firstclass rules and generic traversal. This is achieved by generalizing the pattern matching constructs of standard functional languages. The case construct that ties rules together and prevents their reuse, is replaced by separate, firstclass, pattern matching rules and a choice combinator that deals with pattern match failure. Generic traversal is achieved through application pattern matching in which a constructor application is generically divided into a prefix and a su#x, thus giving generic access to the subterms of a constructor term. Many highly generic term traversals can be defined in a typesafe way using this feature.

The subject of this thesis is the construction of programming languages suitable for the implementation of program transformation systems. First class rules and generic traversals are especially useful in such languages. Stratego, a language specifically intended for program transformations, supports these features, but is untyped and impure. In this thesis we develop a pure nonstrict functional language called RhoStratego, incorporating features from Stratego. First class rules are obtained through the equivalent of Stratego's leftbiased choice operator. This approach is not only useful to strategic programming, but is also more powerful than existing proposals to extend pattern matching, such as views and pattern guards. Stratego's generic traversal primitives are implemented through a more fundamental mechanism, the application pattern match, whereby constructed values can be deconstructed in a generic and typeable fashion. We present the syntax and semantics of the language, as well as the semantics of a strict variant. Furthermore, we have developed a type system for RhoStratego, which consists of the HindleyMilner type system extended with rank2 polymorphism and typing rules to support generic traversals. The type system is powerful enough to allow, and ensure the safety of, type unifying and type preserving generic transformations. We have implemented a type checker that infers all types, except rank2 types for which annotations must be given. We also discuss the results of the implementation of a compiler for RhoStratego, and in particular how generic traversals and the choice operator can be implemented. Contents 1
