New cards

In OCaml, functions taking a string as an argument always produce a string as the result.

In OCaml, floats are represented as the ratio of two integers.

Structurally recursive functions may diverge on some inputs.

An expression is

a computation that evaluates to a value.

Monads provide an abstraction of effects, and help to make sure that effects happen in a controlled order.

True

New cards
New cards

The name “monad” comes from the mathematical field of category theory, which studies abstractions of mathematical structures.

True

New cards

A promise is a mechanism for lazy evaluation.

False

Valid States of a Promise

Resolved Rejected Pending

New cards
New cards

Regardless of whether a promise was rejected, a promise can be resolved once and only once.

True MAYBE (False because if it is rejected it cannot be resolved).

The fundamental operations of an OCaml monad are:

Return and Bind

New cards
New cards

An OCaml sequence is a data structure that can contain an infinite amount of elements regardless the amount of memory available on a computer.

True

New cards
New cards

It is possible for recursive functions to diverge (loop forever).

True

New cards
New cards

Functions cannot be compared for structural equality.

True

New cards
New cards

In OCaml, all the elements of a list must have the same type.

True

Memoization

optimization technique used primarily to speed up computer programs by storing the results of expensive function calls and returning the cached result when the same inputs occur again.

New cards
New cards

Sequence

Mathematically is an infinite list.

New cards
New cards

Lazy Evaluation

Do not compute until specifically demanded.

New cards
New cards

Interleaving

rapidly switch back and forth between computations.

New cards
New cards

Parallelism

use hardware that is capable of performing two or more computations literally at the same time.

New cards
New cards

nondeterministic

the order in which operations occur cannot necessarily be known ahead of time.

Purely functional programs make nondeterminism easier to reason about, because evaluation of an expression always returns the same value no matter what.
