Declarative Parallel Programming in Spreadsheet End-User Development: A Literature Review
Research output: Book / Anthology / Report / Ph.D. thesis › Report › Research
Spreadsheets are first-order functional languages and are widely used in research and industry as a tool to conveniently perform all kinds of computations. Because cells on a spreadsheet are immutable, there are possibilities for implicit parallelization of spreadsheet computations. In this literature study, we provide an overview of the publications on spreadsheet end-user programming and declarative array programming to inform further research on parallel programming in spreadsheets. Our results show that there is a clear overlap between spreadsheet programming and array programming and we can directly apply results from functional array programming to a spreadsheet model of computations.
