ML with PTIME complexity guarantees *

Jacek Chrząszcz, Aleksy Schubert
Implicit Computational Complexity is a line of research where the possibility to inference a valid property for a program implies that the program runs in particular complexity class. Soft type systems are one of the research threads within the field. We present here a soft type system with ML-like polymorphism that enjoys decidable typechecking, type inference and typability problems and gives polynomial time computational guarantees for the running time of typed programs.
