Abstract

The Brisk Abstract Machine is the machine model used for the implementation of the Bristol Haskell Compiler (Brisk). It is especially designed to support new paradigms in functional languages like concurrency, distribution and computational mobility, dynamic loading and linking, debugging tools, and logic programming in the form of the Escher extensions to Haskell. The Brisk Abstract Machine is based on the STG-machine, though its model is simplified and adapted. Extensions can now be added in this flexible model to provide the desired paradigms.
