subtyping, row polymorphism, and illustrate the problems induced by
side effects (references) and the need for the value restriction.
The third part of the course describes more advanced features of type
systems: exceptions and effect handlers, including their typechecking and
static analyses: type inference, data flow and control flow analyses.
Finally, it introduces dependent types and refinement types.
The third part of the course introduces "rich" type systems designed
to guarantee extra properties in addition to safety: principality,
information hiding, modularity, extensionality, purity, control of
effects, algorithmic invariants, complexity, resource usage, or full
functional correctness. The expressivity of these systems sometimes
endangers the tractability, or even the feasibility, of type checking
and type inference: a common thread between these lectures discusses
the tradeoffs made on the design of these systems to balance
expressivity and tractability.
The last part focuses on the use of dependent types for programming:
effectful programming with monads and algebraic effects; tagless
