For example, in (f x y) all the variables, f, x, and y, appear as references. ) the occurrence of x is a declaration: it introduces the variable as a name for some value. In the lambda expression, the value of the variable will be supplied when the procedure is called; in the let expression the value of the variable is obtained from the value of the expression in the first ". ". We sometimes call the value named by a variable its denotation. The denotation must come from some declaration, and we say that the variable reference is bound by that declaration, or that it refers to that declaration.

Lon) 0 (+ (car lon) (list- But it is not possible to proceed in this way with vectors, because they do not decompose as readily. Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to solve a more general problem and use it to solve the original problem as a special case. For the vector sum problem, since we cannot decompose vectors, we generalize the problem to compute the sum of part of the vector. We define partial-vector-sum, which takes a vector of numbers, von, and a number, n, and returns the sum of the first n values in von.

Exp) (eqv? exp var)) ((eqv? (car exp) 'lambda) (and (not (eqv? (caadr exp) var)) (else (or (occurs-free? var (car exp)) (occurs-free? var (cadr exp)))))))(define occurs(cond ((symbol? exp) #f) ((eqv?

(caadr exp) var) (occurs-free? var (caddr exp))))) (else (or (occurs(occurs-bound? 1 occurs-free? and occurs-bound? 22 [ ] Scheme lambda expressions may have any number of formal parameters, and Scheme procedure calls may have any number of operands. Modify the formal definitions of occurs free and occurs bound to allow lambda expressions with any number of formal parameters and procedure calls with any number of operands.
