    APL will be 50 years old in November 2016 (50 years from 1966-11-27 15.53.58, to be exact), and it remains unsurpassed in manifesting Kenneth E. Iverson’s five important characteristics of notation

    • ease of expression
    • suggestivity
    • subordination of detail
    • economy
    • amenability to proof

    These characteristics are demonstrated by working through 16 APL expressions. The material is approachable for beginners and yet thought-provoking for experts.

    One of the 16 expressions is a fast computation of the partition function without use of the Hardy-Ramanujan (1918) results.
