digitalmars.D - Seeking research papers on D

Hello

I was looking for research publications on D (either design of D 
or its application) on Google scholar, but since searching D is 
difficult, I could not find much.

I would be grateful if you could point me to a collection etc. of 
papers on D. It will be very helpful in my research.
Thanks

I have read several online articles about D and Phobos, plus I remember D and Phobos cited few times in Stroustrup papers and Alexander Stepanov seminars, but I don't remember any research papers about D/Phobos. What kind of texts are you looking for? Bye, bearophile

I can confirm that in my current research activities I am using D almost exclusively for simulations, and barring objections from colleagues (which don't seem likely:-) the language will be cited in the resulting papers.

I was mostly referring to the programming languages research literature. There are, indeed, a growing number of students using D as an implementation language for research projects. Andrei

For example, for Go language, I found, "GoHotDraw: Evaluating the Go programming language with design patterns", where they have evaluated use of Go for that project. Similarly, one can find for GPUs etc. Similarly, I was looking for research papers discussing applications on D or comparing D's use for scientific applications with other languages. I searched: http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=%22d+%22+programming+language&btnG=& l=en&as_sdt=1%2C16, and also with dlang (which it changes to slang!), but could not find anything. I would be grateful for your help.

Maybe there are no research papers on D. I hope to be shown wrong. Bye, bearophile

Hey, that guy was my lecturer! He turned me onto D in the first place. Neat. :D

Nice note: last week by chance I ran into a friend and former colleague from Switzerland, who I hadn't seen or been in touch with for years -- and one of the first things he said to me was, "I found you on the D programming forums, I've just started getting curious about using this language and I saw that you are really involved!" So, use and awareness of this language in the research community seems like it's growing. My current colleagues are C/C++/Python focused in general (and sometimes, FORTRAN) but they have certainly examined my D code with some curiosity.

Nothing so posh, I'm afraid. :-) I was at Fribourg University in the interdisciplinary physics group, working on neural networks, econophysics and (latterly) reputation/recommender systems. These days I'm at the Politecnico di Torino in Italy.

I moved to Germany and nowadays doing consulting stuff mostly in JVM/.NET languages.
