In science:

The congruences for function symbols are defined in a schematic manner t o cover arbitrary arities (cf. [cong+ .2], [cong− .2], [cong− .3]).
Typed Generic Traversal With Term Rewriting Strategies
We also introduce special typing rules for congruences on tuples (cf. [cong.3] and [cong.4]).
Typed Generic Traversal With Term Rewriting Strategies
Note that the typing rules for congruences for ordinary symbols relied on a context lookup (cf. [cong.1] and [cong.2] in Figure 10) while this is not the case for polymorphic congruences on tuples.
Typed Generic Traversal With Term Rewriting Strategies
The two generators are either a combination of SHR with CONG, a multiplicative congruential generator, which is the underlying generator of matlab’s randn, and the KISS generator , which combines also a multiply with carry register.
