Brian Hurt on Derivatives of Regular Expressions

"I introduce the notion of a partial derivative of a regular expression, and demonstrate an implementation (in clojure), and show how it can easily allow for capabilities not normally provided in most regex libraries.

Note: there will be no math, only code.

This talk is based on the paper "Regular expression derivatives re-examined" by Owens, Reppy, and Turon.

Slides and source code will be available before the talk-  URLs posted to the list when they're available (need to finish writing them first).
