My global research revolves around five fields: mathematical models of computation, associated programming and circuit description languages, implementation of compilers to hardware and software, usage of formal verification systems, and industrial applications.Ecole des Mines de Paris and IRIA was about understanding how to revert the order of recursive computations, for instance by transforming the Fibonnacci recursive algorithm into the iterative one. I proved the optimality in time and space of Rice’s algorithms to compute the Ackerman function as defined by its classical program. In this study, I introduced the notion of a stable function that became fundamental for what followed.
With Jean-Jacques Lévy, I then studied minimal and optimal syntactic computations in recursive programs and in the lambda-calculus. Afterwards, I switched to the full abstraction problem specified by Plotkin and Milner: build a semantical model of PCF (typed l-calculus + arithmetic + recursion) that exactly contains all functions that are definable by syntactic PCF terms. I first established the syntactic properties of stability and sequentiality of the lambda-calculus, which essentially show that it cannot express parallel computation. I then developed the stable model, which preserves stability in the semantics unlike the classical Scott Model. In 1977, I moved to the new Ecole des Mines site at Sophia-Antipolis. With Pierre-Louis Curien, I developed the sequential algorithm model, where functions are replaced by algorithms that can be presented in two dual ways: pairs of a stable function and a computation strategy, or programs in a simple kernel sequential programming language. We showed that this model forms a cartesian closed category, hence an non-functional model of the lambda-calculus. With M. Devin and F. Montagnac, we then developed the CDS programming language based of this theory. The study of categories as models of the lambda-calculus was also at the root of the categorical abstract machine (CAM) that started the development of CAML.
In 1982, INRIA opened a new site in Sophia-Antipolis. I created a joint project between Ecole des Mines and INRIA with Gérard Boudol. At that time, I switched to automata theory and reactive / real-time programming. With Jean-Paul Rigault and Jean-Paul Marmorat, we gave the initial definition of the new Esterel synchronous programming language dedicated to embedded systems. In cooperation with the Lustre teams of Nicolas Halbwachs and Paul Caspi and the Signal team of Albert Benveniste and Paul Le Guernic, we studied the associated synchronous model of concurrency. I essentially focused the theoretical study on the definition and usage of deterministic preemption structures in this model. With Laurent Cosserat, we developed the fisrt Esterel v1 compiler, soon followed by the Esterel v2 compiler developed with Philippe Couronné. Esterel v2 was based on the adpatation of a fast and beautiful algorithm developed by Ravi Sethi (then at Bell Labs) and myself to translate regular expressions into automata. We conducted industrial experiments at Bertin and Dassault Aviation, where we started a fruitful and longstanding cooperation with Emmanuel Ledinot. In 1986, we started the development of a much more efficient compiler called Esterel v3, based on decisive fundamental research results by Georges Gonthier. This compiler was then industrialized by the companies Cisi Ingéniérie and ILOG and used by several customers.
In 1990, I joined Jean Vuillemin’s group at Digital Equipment as a part-time consultant. The group was developing the Perle FPGA-based machine and using it as a fast co-processor of Alpha-based workstations. It was pretty clear how to develop data-flow hardware designs, but much less clear how to develop complex control-intensive designs. EstereI seemed to be a good language to specify them. I created an efficient direct translation from Esterel to circuits, which was readily implemented in the new Esterel v4 compiler. This new approach also had a decisive impact on software applications of Esterel: generating a circuit simulator in C instead of an explicit finite state machine made it possible to scale up to any application size, completely avoiding the potential exponential code size blow-up of Esterel v3. It also lead to major progress in understanding causality issues in Esterel and relating them to constructive logic. With Tom Shiple, we could show that a combinational cyclic circuit is electrically stable for all delays if and only if its Boolean equations can always be solved by using only constructive propositional logic, i.e., by disallowing usage of the excluded-middle law X or not X = true. This lead to a new Esterel v5 compiler, soon followed by a modular version Esterel v6. I also collaborated with Jean Vuillemin and François Bourdoncle to define the Jazz circuit design language. A new and more general version of the theorem initially proved by Shiple and myself has been recently developed with Michael Mendler, using a novel continous time / discrete time temporal logic. The corresponding paper is available here.
In 1999, I started cooperating with Michael Kishinevsky at Intel on extensions of Esterel to be able to define any kind of for-real synchronous circuits. This required the definition of deep extensions of the language to be able to support arbitrary data path and bit manipulation structures. We defined the new Esterel v7 language and studied how to compile it. The language is characterized by a smart arithmetic and bitvector type-checker that automatically ensures optimal sizing of intermediate variables in data paths.
In January 2001, I joined the Esterel Technologies company created in2000, as its Chief Scientist. I directed the implementation of the Esterel v7 compiler (with A. Boulan, L. Arditi, M. Buchholtz, M. Perreaut, B. Pagano, and others). We solved many fundamental and technical problems needed for production usage: extending the language to support multiclock design; supporting a ECO-enabled flow (ECOs are late circuit mask patches necessary when it has become too expensive to recompile, re-place and re-route the circuit); ensuring safe translation to VHDL and Verilog that are not semantically well-defined languages; linking the compiler with the Esterel Studio graphical interface and with the Prover SL formal verification system; insterting of the tools within complete industrial flows, etc. The Esterel Studio complete design and verification environment has been used in production by ST Microelectronics and Texas Instruments and in research by Intel, Philips (which became NxP), ST Microelectronics, and Texas Instruments. It has also been widely distributed in Esterel Technologies’ academic program.
In 2003, Esterel Technologies acquired SCADE, the leading tool for synchronous avionics development, based on the Lustre Technology developed in Verimag, Grenoble, and used by major avionics companies such as Airbus. I participated in the development of the SCADE language and environment, and, in particular, of the new Scade 6 language that integrates the best of Lustre and Esterel. See www.esterel-technologies.com for more information.
In 2007-2008, I have been selected by Collège de France to occupy the yearly chair Technological Innovation Liliane Bettencourt (Chaire d'innovation technologique Liliane Bettencourt), sponsored by the Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation. I decided to give a general audience computer science course called How and Why the World Becomes Digital (Pourquoi et comment le monde devient numérique). The inaugural lecture analyzed why the digitization idea and the fantastic expansion of computers changed the world, and how this change will continue. It also explains the scientific background of this revolution. The inaugural lecture is available as a book in French published by Fayard / Collège de France. It was followed by eight 2-hour video-recorded courses / seminar sessions in French (cours et séminaires), respectively on algorithms, circuits, programming languages, embedded systems, program verification, networks, images, cryptography, and a conclusion. For each subject, I invited experts from research and industry to give the seminars. After the course, I organized a Colloquium on Informatics and Bioinformatics (Colloque Informatique et bio-informatique).
In 2009-2010, I was selected
again by Collège de
France to occupy the first year of the new yearly chair Informatics
Computational Sciences (Informatique
sciences numériques), created in
partnership with Inria.
I started by an inaugural lecture (leçon inaugurale) called Thinking
about, modeling, and mastering computation (Penser, modéliser
et maîtriser le
informatique), which is published as a book in
French by Fayard / Collège de France. The inaugural
lecture was followed by eight 2-hours
video-recorded courses / seminar sessions in French (cours
et séminaires) about a general view of
computability, the lambda-calculus and its semantic models, finite
automata, models of concurrency, synchronous languages, and model
In October 2010, under an invitation by Michael Fourman at University of Edinburg( Informatics Forum), I repeated some courses of the 2007-2008 and 2009-2010 years under the name Seven Keys to the Digital Future. Seven new seminars were given on this occasion, mostly by British scientists (videos available).
During year 2012-2013, I started by an inaugural
lecture called The Informatics of time and events
du temps et des événements), available as an electronic book here
(livre électronique ici)
and as a book published in French by Fayard / Collège de France.
The inaugural lecture was followed by a series of courses
and seminars (cours
et séminaires) given with academic researchers and industrial
engineers. I continued on the same topic with a 2013-2014 course and
seminars series called Generalized
Time: Multiple Clocks, Continuous Time and Discrete Time (Le
temps élargi: horloges multiples, temps discret et temps continu).
My 2014 course cycle was about program
verification. In 2014-2015, I gave a general course / seminar series
Programs: Why? When? How? (Prouver
les programmes : Pourquoi? Quand? Comment?). In 2015-2016, my
course was dedicated to automated verification techniques and called Data
Structures and Algorithms for Formal Verification (Structures
de données et algorithmes pour la vérification formelle). I
also organized a Colloquium called Art
and Sciences: new domains for Informatics (Colloque Arts et sciences : de nouveaux domaines
pour l'informatique), with talks on Astronomy, Paleontology,
Geophysics, Bioinformatics, Web Art, and Man/Machine musical
co-improvisation, followed by a concert by the famous jazzman and
improviser Bernard Lubat.
March 2009, I am a member
of the Indes INRIA
project dedicated to
diffuse programming, i.e., the
global programming of the set of
objects we now have at our disposal: computers, telephones, TVs,
appliances, etc. Safe programming of this network of devices will
cooperation between many sequential and parallel programming models. My
work is about understanding which models are needed where and how to
models cooperate. We are currently developing HipHop.js,
orchestration language embedded into Manuel Serrano’s
Hop.js language and
replaces the previous Scheme-based Hop version. Hop.js is dedicated to
the development of complex
multitier applications integrates the server and client codes in a
single program and makes code
migration and client / servercommunication
fully transparent. HipHop is used to orchestrate
activities launched by Hop, by providing a synchronous view and control
of them. See the papers Multi-tier
programming in Hop (Communications
of the ACM, August 2012, see also ACM Queue
preliminary version) and Hop
and HipHop : Multitier Web Orchestration (proc.
conf., Bubhaneswar). HipHop adds the possibility of
orchestrating complex concurrent behaviors from with Hop. Compared to Esterel, it is a much more
dynamic language, whose programs
are Hop values that can be constructed on the fly and run by an
that implements the constructive causality of Esterel.
HipHop can be used both
on the server and client side
for maximal flexibility. The implementation and language reserach is
performed with Colin Vidal, PhD student at Inria Sophia-Antipolis.
performed together by instrumentists and computers interacting in
real-time has become a standard for contemporary composers. Thanks to
the Antescofo project
headed by Arshia Cont,
it has become possible to adapt in real-time the tempo of the
electronic part to the way the humans play, instead of the contrary as
was only possible before. Antescofo is snow used in concerts all over
the world. The Antescofo listening machine detects all of (or most of)
the events provoked by the instrumentists, and this detection may
itself trigger electronic parts. With Arshia's team and the composers Philippe Manoury and Gilbert Nouno,
among others, we are interested in defining new languages making it
possible to write complex algorithmic scores for error-recovery and
resynchronization strategies to recover from human or listening-engine
mistakes and to smoothly deal with human-directed tempo variations. In
his PhD thesis held in 1015, José
developed the current Antescofo language, which is inspired from
synchronous languages such as Esterel. José is now post-doc in my lab,
and we work in close contact with IRCAM.
Note that Philippe Manoury is a Guest Professor at Collège de France on
the yearly Artistic Creation Chair, with a course called The
Invention of Music (L'invention
de la musique).
