μ ML’s (lambda (x 1 ⋯ x n) e) is equivalent to Standard ML’s (fn (x 1, , x n) => e). The parentheses are not always needed, but you would be wise to include them. μ ML’s (case e ([p 1 e 1] ⋯ [p n e n])) is equivalent to Standard ML’s (case e of p 1 => e 1 | ⋯ | p n => e n). Again, the parentheses are not always needed, but you would be wise to include them. In µML, tuples are ordinary value constructors of ordinary ab-stract data types (see below). But in Standard ML, they have special syntax: • Ullman, section (not section , which is an utter disaster, as noted below), plus (tuple types) • Tofte, sections 8, .

nition of Standard ML (Revised) is the formal definition of the language. It is supplemented by the Standard ML Basis Library, which defines a com-mon basis of types that are shared by all implementations of the language. Commentary on Standard ML discusses some of the decisions that went into the design of the first version of the language. the book is not a handbook of machine learning practice. Instead, my goal is to give the reader su cient preparation to make the extensive literature on machine learning accessible. Students in my Stanford courses on machine learning have already made several useful suggestions, as have my colleague, Pat Langley, and my teaching.

It is often called a “functional” language, and it can be used that way, but SML is an imperative language with mutable storage and side effects. The Revision of Standard ML The De nition of Standard ML was published in Since then the im- plementation technology of the language has advanced enormously, and its users have multiplied. The language and its De nition have therefore incited close scrutiny, evaluation, much . Four Lectures on Standard ML. Abstract: The following notes give an overview of Standard ML with emphasis placed on the Modules part of the language. The notes are, to the best of my knowledge, faithful to ``The Definition of Standard ML, Version 2'', as regards syntax, semantics and terminology.
