Data Abstraction

- Clients
- Interestedin WHAT services a module provides, not HOW they are carried out. So, ignore details irrelevant to the overall behavior, for clarity.

- Implementors
- Reserve the right to change the code, to improve performance. So, ensure that clients do not make unwarranted assumptions.

Specification of Data Types

Type : Values + Operations

SyntaxSemantics

Signature of Ops Meaning of Ops

Model-basedAxiomatic(Algebraic)

Description in terms of Give axioms satisfied

standard “primitive” data types by the operations

L34ADT

Syntax of LISP S-expr

- operations: nil, cons, car, cdr, null
- signatures:
nil: S-expr

cons: S-expr*S-expr-> S-expr

car: S-expr-> S-expr

cdr: S-expr-> S-expr

null: S-expr-> boolean

for every atoma:

a : S-expr

L34ADT

- Signature tells us how to form complex terms from primitive operations.
- Legal
nil

null(cons(nil,nil))

cons(car(nil),nil)

- Illegal
nil(cons)

null(null)

cons(nil)

L34ADT

Semantics of +: operations.What to expect?

+ : NxN->N

1 + 2 = 3

zero + succ(succ(zero)) = succ(succ(zero))

x + 0 = x

2 * (3 + 4) = 2 * 7 = 14 = 6 + 8

x * ( y + z) = y * x + x * z

L34ADT

Semantics of operations.S-Expr : What to expect?

null(nil) = true

car(cons(nil,nil)) = nil

null(cdr(cons(nil,cons(nil,nil)))) = false

- for all E,F in S-Expr
car(cons(E,F)) = E

null(cons(E,F)) = false

L34ADT

Formal Spec. of ADTs operations.

Characteristics of an “Adequate” Specification

- Completeness (No “undefinedness”)
- Consistency/Soundness (No conflicting definitions)
- Minimality
GOAL:

Learn to write sound and complete algebraic(axiomatic) specifications of ADTs

- Minimality

L34ADT

Classification of Operations operations.

- Observers
- generate a value outside the type
- E.g., null in ADTS-expr

- generate a value outside the type
- Constructors
- required for representing values in the type
- E.g., nil, cons, atoms a in ADTS-expr

- required for representing values in the type
- Non-constructors
- remaining operations
- E.g., car, cdr in ADTS-expr

- remaining operations

L34ADT

S-Expr operations.in LISP

a : S-Expr

nil : S-Expr

cons : S-Expr x S-Expr -> S-Expr

car : S-Expr -> S-Expr

cdr : S-Expr -> S-Expr

null : S-Expr -> boolean

Observers : null

Constructors : a,nil, cons

Non-constructors : car, cdr

L34ADT

Algebraic Spec operations.

- Write axioms (equations) that characterize the meaning of all the operations.
- Describe the meaning of the observers and the non-constructors on all possible constructor patterns.
- Note the use of typed variables to abbreviate the definition. (“Finite Spec.”)

L34ADT

- for all S, T in operations.S-expr
cdr(nil) = ?error? cdr(a) = ?error? cdr(cons(S,T)) = T

car(nil) = ?error? car(a) = ?error? car(cons(S,T)) = S

null(nil) = true null(a) = false

null(cons(S,T)) = false

- Omitting the equation for “nil” implies that implementations that differ in the interpretation of “nil” are all equally acceptable.

L34ADT

S-Expr operations.s

- car(a)
- cons(a,nil)
- car(cons(a,nil)) =
- a
- cons( car(cons(a,nil)), cdr(cons(a,a)) ) =
- cons( a , a )

L34ADT

Motivation for Classification : operations.Minimality

- If car and cdr are also regarded as constructors (as they generate values in the type), then the spec. must consider other cases to guarantee completeness (or provide sufficient justification for their omission).
- for all S in S-expr:
null(car(S)) = ...

null(cdr(S)) = ...

L34ADT

ADT Table ( operations.symbol table/directory)

empty : Table

update : Key x Info x Table ->Table

lookUp: Key x Table -> Info

lookUp(K,empty) = error

lookUp(K,update(Ki, I, T)) =

if K = Ki then I else lookUp(K,T)

(“last update overrides the others”)

L34ADT

Table operations.s

- empty
- update(5, “abc”, empty)
- update(10, “xyz”, update(5, “abc”, empty))
- update(5, “xyz”, update(5, “abc”, empty))
(Search)

- lookup (5,update(5, “xyz”, update(5, “abc”, empty)) )
- lookup (5,update(5, “xyz”, update(5, “xyz”, empty)) )
- lookup (5,update(5, “xyz”, empty) )
- “xyz”

L34ADT

Implementations operations. These exhibit a common Table behavior, but differ in performance aspects (search time). Correctness of a program is assured even when the implementation is changed as long as the spec is satisfied.

- Array-based
- Linear List - based
- Tree - based
- Binary Search Trees, AVL Trees, B-Trees etc

- Hash Table - based

L34ADT

(cont’d) operations.

- Accounts for various other differences (Data Invariants) in implementation such as
- Eliminating duplicates.
- Retaining only the final binding.
- Maintaining the records sorted on the key.
- Maintaining the records sorted in terms of the frequency of use (a la caching).

L34ADT

A-list operations.in LISP

a : A

nil : A-list

cons : A x A-list -> A-list

car : A-list -> A

cdr : A-list -> A-list

null : A-list -> boolean

- Observers : null, car
- Constructors : nil, cons
- Non-constructors : cdr

L34ADT

- for all L in operations.A-list
cdr(cons(a,L)) = L

car(cons(a,L)) = a

null(nil) = true

null(cons(a,L)) = false

- Consciously silent about nil-list.

L34ADT

Natural Numbers operations.

zero : N

succ : N-> N

add : NxN-> N

iszero : N->boolean

observers : iszero

constructors : zero, succ

non-constructors : add

Each number has a unique representation in terms of its constructors.

L34ADT

for all I,J in operations.N

add(I,J) = ?

add(zero,I) = I

add(succ(J), I) = succ(add(J,I))

iszero(I) = ?

iszero(zero) = true

iszero(succ(I)) = false

L34ADT

(cont’d) operations.

add(succ(succ(zero)), succ(zero))

= succ(succ(succ(zero)))

- The first rule eliminates add from an expression, while the second rule simplifies the first argument to add.
- Associativity, commutativity, and identity properties of add can be deduced from this definition through purely mechanical means.

L34ADT

A-list operations. Revisted

a : A

nil : A-list

list : A -> A-list

append : A-list x A-list -> A-list

null : A-list -> boolean

- values
- nil, list(a), append(nil, list(a)), ...

L34ADT

Algebraic Spec operations.

- constructors
- nil, list, append

- observer
isnull(nil) = true

isnull(list(a)) = false

isnull(append(L1,L2)) =

isnull(L1) /\ isnull(L2)

L34ADT

- Problem operations. : Same value has multiple representation in terms of constructors.
- Solution : Add axioms for constructors.
- Identity Rule
append(L,nil) = L

append(nil,L) = L

- Associativity Rule
append(append(L1,L2),L3)

=

append(L1, append(L2,L3))

- Identity Rule

L34ADT

Intuitive understanding of constructors operations.

- The constructor patterns correspond to distinct memory/data patterns required to store/represent values in the type.
- The constructor axioms can be viewed operationally as rewrite rules to simplify constructor patterns. Specifically, constructor axioms correspond to computations necessary for equality checking and aid in defining a normal form.
- Cf. ==vsequal in Java

L34ADT

Writing ADT Specs operations.

- Idea: Specify “sufficient” axioms such that syntactically distinct terms (patterns) that denote the same value can be proven so.
- Completeness
- Define non-constructors and observers on all possible constructor patterns

- Consistency
- Check for conflicting reductions

- Completeness
- Note: A term essentially records the detailed historyofconstruction of the value.

L34ADT

General Strategy for ADT Specs operations.

- Syntax
- Specify signatures and classify operations.

- Constructors
- Write axioms to ensure that two constructor terms that represent the same value can be proven so.
- E.g., identity, associativity, commutativity rules.

- Write axioms to ensure that two constructor terms that represent the same value can be proven so.

L34ADT

- Non-constructors operations.
- Provide axioms to collapse a non-constructor term into a term involving only constructors.

- Observers
- Define the meaning of an observer on all constructor terms, checking for consistency.
Implementation of a type

An interpretation of the operations of the ADT that satisfies all the axioms.

- Define the meaning of an observer on all constructor terms, checking for consistency.

L34ADT

Declarative Specification operations.

- Let *: N x N -> N denote integer multiplication.
Equation: n * n = n

Solution: n = 0 \/ n = 1.

- Let f: N x N -> N denote a binary integer function.
Equation: 0 f 0 = 0

Solution: f = “multiplication” \/

f = “addition” \/ f = “subtraction” \/ ...

L34ADT

delete operations. : Set

- for all n, m inN, s inSet
delete(n,empty) = empty

delete(n,insert(m,s)) =

if (n=m)

then delete(n,s) (invalid: s)

else insert(m,delete(n,s))

delete(5, insert(5,insert(5,empty)) ) {5,5}

== empty {}

=/= insert(5,empty)

[5,5]

[]

[5]

L34ADT

delete operations. : List

- Previous axioms capture “remove all occurrences” semantics.
- For “remove last occurrence” semantics:
for all n, m inN, s inList

delete(n,empty) = empty

delete(n,insert(m,s)) =

if (n=m) then s

else insert(m,delete(n,s))

delete(5, insert(5,insert(5,empty)) ) [5,5]

== insert(5,empty) [5]

L34ADT

delete operations. : List

- Previous axioms capture “remove all / last occurrences” semantics.
- For “remove first occurrence” semantics:
for all n, m inN, s inList

delete(n,empty) = empty

delete(n,insert(m,s)) =

if (n=m) andnot (n in s) then s

else insert(m,delete(n,s))

delete(1, insert(1,insert(2,insert(1,insert(5,empty)))) ) [5,1,2,1]

== insert(1,insert(2,insert(5,empty)))[5,2,1]

L34ADT

size operations.: List vs Set

- size(insert(m,l)) = 1 + size(l)
- E.g., size([2,2,2]) = 1 + size([2,2])

- size(insert(m,s)) =
if (m ins) then size(s)

else 1 + size(s)

- E.g., size({2,2,2}) = size({2,2})
= size ({2}) = 1

- E.g., size({2,2,2}) = size({2,2})

L34ADT

Model-based operations.vs Algebraic

- A model-based specification of a type satisfies the corresponding axiomatic specification. Hence, algebraic spec. is “more abstract” than the model-based spec.
- Algebraic spec captures the least common-denominator (behavior) of all possible implementations.

L34ADT

Axiomatization: operations.Algebraic Structures Examples:

- A set G with operation * forms a group if
- Closure: a,b eG implies a*b eG.
- Associativity: a,b,c eG implies a*(b *c) = (a*b)*c.
- Identity: There exists i eG such that
i*a = a*i = a for all a eG.

- Inverses: For every a eG there exists an element
~a eG such that a * ~a = ~a * a = i.

- (Integers, +), but not (N, +)
- (Reals - {0}, *), but not (Integers, *)
- (Permutation functions, Function composition)

L34ADT

Example operations.

car( cons( X, Y) ) = X

cdr( cons (X, Y) ) = Y

(define (cons x y)

(lambda (m)

(cond ((eq? m ’first) x)

(eq? m ’second) y)

)

)) ; “closure”

(define (car z) (z ’first))

(define (cdr z) (z ’second))

L34ADT

Applications of ADT spec operations.

- Least common denominator of all possible implementations.
- Focus on the essential behavior.
- An implementation is a refinement of ADT spec.

- IMPL. = Behavior SPEC + Rep “impurities”
- To prove equivalence of two implementations, show that they satisfy the same spec.
- In the context of OOP, a class implements an ADT, and the spec. is a class invariant.

- Focus on the essential behavior.

L34ADT

(Cont’d) operations.

- Indirectly, ADT spec. gives us the ability to vary or substitute an implementation.
- E.g., In the context of interpreter/compiler, a function definition and the corresponding calls (ADT FuncValues) together must achieve a fixed goal. However, there is freedom in the precise apportioning of workload between the two separate tasks:
- How to represent the function?
- How to carry out the call?

- E.g., In the context of interpreter/compiler, a function definition and the corresponding calls (ADT FuncValues) together must achieve a fixed goal. However, there is freedom in the precise apportioning of workload between the two separate tasks:

L34ADT

(Cont’d) operations.

- ADT spec. are absolutely necessary to automate formal reasoning about programs. Theorem provers such as Boyer-Moore prover (NQTHM), LARCH, PVS, HOL, etc routinely use such axiomatization of types.
- Provides a theory of equivalence of values that enables design of a suitable canonical form.
- Identity-> delete
- Associativity-> remove parenthesis
- Commutativity-> sort

L34ADT

Spec vs Impl operations.

The reason to focus on the behavioral aspects, ignoring

efficiency details initially, is that the notion of a “best implementation” requires application specific issues and trade-offs. In other words, the distribution of work among

the various operations is based on a chosen representation,

which in turn, is dictated by the pragmatics of an application. However, in each potential implementation, there is always some operations that will be efficient while others will pay the price for this comfort.

L34ADT

Ordered Integer Lists operations.

null : oil->boolean

nil : oil

hd : oil->int

tl : oil->oil

ins : int x oil->oil

order : int_list->oil

Constructors: nil, ins

Non-constructors: tl, order

Observers: null, hd

L34ADT

- Problem operations.:
- syntactically different, but semantically equivalent constructor terms
ins(2,ins(5,nil)) = ins(5,ins(2,nil))

ins(2,ins(2,nil)) = ins(2,nil)

- hd should return the smallest element.
- It is not the case that for all I in int, L in oil,
hd(ins(I,L)) = I.

- This holds iff I is the minimum in ins(I,L).

- It is not the case that for all I in int, L in oil,
- Similarly for tl.

- syntactically different, but semantically equivalent constructor terms

L34ADT

Axioms for Constructors operations.

- Idempotence
- for all ordered integer lists L; for all I in int
ins(I, ins(I,L)) = ins(I,L)

- for all ordered integer lists L; for all I in int
- Commutativity
- for all ordered integer lists L; for all I, J in int
ins(I, ins(J,L)) = ins(J, ins(I,L))

Completeness : Any permutation can be generated by exchanging adjacent elements.

- for all ordered integer lists L; for all I, J in int

L34ADT

Axioms for Non-constructors operations.

tl(nil) = error

tl(ins(I,L)) = ?

tl(ins(I,nil)) = nil

tl(ins(I,ins(J,L))) =

I < J => ins( J, tl(ins(I,L)) )

I > J => ins( I, tl(ins(J,L)) )

I = J => tl( ins( I,L ) )

(cf. constructor axioms for duplicate elimination)

order(nil) = nil

order(cons(I,L)) = ins(I,order(L))

L34ADT

Axioms for Observers operations.

hd(nil) = error

hd(ins(I,nil)) = I

hd(ins(I,ins(J,L))) =

I < J => hd( ins(I,L) )

I > J => hd( ins(J,L) )

I = J => hd( ins(I,L) )

null(nil) = true

null(ins(I,L)) = false

L34ADT

Scheme Implementation operations.

(define nullnull?)

(define nil’())

(define inscons)

(define (hd ol) *min* )

(define (tl ol) *list sans min* )

(define (order lis) *sorted list* )

L34ADT

Possible Implementations operations.

- Representation Choice 1:
- List of integers with duplicates
- ins is cons but hd and tl require linear-time search

- List of integers with duplicates
- Representation Choice 2:
- Sorted list of integers without duplicates
- ins requires search but hd and tl can be made more efficient

- Sorted list of integers without duplicates
- Representation Choice 3:
- Balanced-tree : Heap
