> The Mathematically Structured Programming Group's vision is to use
> mathematics to understand the nature of computation, and to then turn
> that understanding into the next generation of programming
> languages. This reflects the symbiotic relationship between
> mathematics, programming, and the design of programming languages ---
> any attempt to sever this connection will diminish each component. In
> order to achieve these research goals we mainly use ideas from
> category theory, type theory and functional programming. Besides
> Professor Neil Ghani, the group consists of a number of
> internationally leading researchers including Dr Patricia Johann, Dr
> Conor McBride, Dr Peter Hancock, Dr Robert Atkey as well as a number
> of PhD students.
> Anyone interested should in the first instance contact Professor Neil
> Ghani whose email address is "ng at cis.strath.ac.uk"  and outline  
> their academic
> background. Applications will be considered on a first come, first
> served basis.
