>> 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
