The constrained-normal package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

The package provides normal forms for monads and related structures, similarly to the Operational package. The difference is that we parameterise the normal forms on a constraint, and apply that constraint to all existential types within the normal form. This allows monad (and other) instances to be generated for underlying types that require constraints on their return-like and bind-like operations, e.g. Set.

This is documented in the following paper:

The Constrained-Monad Problem. Neil Sculthorpe and Jan Bracker and George Giorgidze and Andy Gill. 2013. http://www.ittc.ku.edu/~neil/papers_and_talks/constrained-monad-problem.pdf

The functionality exposed by this library is also used internally by the Set-Monad and RMonad packages.
