> Efficient Nominal Gradual Typing
> Abstract:
> Recent research has identified significant performance hurdles that sound
> gradual typing needs to overcome. These performance hurdles stem from the
> fact that the run-time checks gradual type systems insert into code can
> cause significant overhead. We propose that designing a type system for a
> gradually typed language hand in hand with its implementation from scratch
> is a possible way around these and several other hurdles on the way to
> efficient sound gradual typing. Such a design process also highlights the
> type-system restrictions required for efficient composition with gradual
> typing. We formalize the core of a nominal object-oriented language that
> fulfills a variety of desirable properties for gradually typed languages,
> and present evidence that an implementation of this language suffers
> minimal overhead even in adversarial benchmarks identified in earlier work
