Brandon Williams – Proof in Functions

Proof in Functions

A programming language with a sufficiently advanced type system allows us to explore a beautiful idea that straddles the line between mathematics and computer science. The type system can be used to prove mathematical theorems. We’ll use Apple’s new language, Swift, and interactive playgrounds to explore this idea and come face-to-face with the strange fact that sometimes the compiler can write our code for us.
