By Norman D. Thomson

The proposal for this booklet grew out of proposals on the APL86 con­ ference in Manchester which resulted in the initiation of the I-APL (International APL) undertaking, and during it to the provision of an interpreter which might carry some great benefits of APL in the technique of substantial numbers of college little ones and their academics. the inducement is that after tuition lecturers have glimpsed the chances, there'll be a spot for an "ideas" booklet of brief courses for you to permit beneficial algorithms to be introduced swiftly into school room use, and even perhaps to be written and constructed in entrance of the category. A test of the contents will exhibit how the conciseness of APL makes it attainable to deal with a major variety of themes in a small variety of pages. there's obviously a level of idiosyncrasy within the collection of themes - the choice i've got made displays algo­ rithms that have both proved valuable in genuine paintings, or that have stuck my mind's eye as applicants for demonstrating the worth of APL as a mathematical notation. the place acceptable, notes at the courses are meant to teach the naturalness with which APL offers with the maths involved, and to estab­ lish that APL isn't really, as is usually meant, an unreadable lan­ guage written in a weird and wonderful personality set.
