Abstract or Summary
  • Functional programming is concerned with referential transparency, that is, given a certain function and its parameter, that the result will always be the same. However, it seems that this is violated in applications involving uncertainty, such as rolling a dice. This thesis defines the background of probabilistic programming and domain-specific languages, and builds on these ideas to construct a domain-specific embedded language (DSEL) for probabilistic programming in a purely functional language. This DSEL is then applied in a real-world setting to develop an application in use by the Center for Gene Research at Oregon State University. The process and results of this development are discussed.
