Quantitative Expressiveness of Instruction Sequence Classes for Computation on Single Bit Registers

Authors: Jan A. Bergstra


The number of instructions of an instruction sequence is taken for its logical SLOC, and is abbreviated with LLOC. A notion of quantitative expressiveness is based on LLOC and in the special case of operation over a family of single bit registers a collection of elementary properties is established. A dedicated notion of interface is developed and used for stating relevant properties of classes of instruction sequences.
