Seminar on Traversal-based Normalization

Traversal-based normalization [1] is a non-orthodoxal technique for lambda-style computations. At the moment this approach is interesting from purely theoretical standpoint; however a novel view on such a fundamental problem might have some practical value. The purpose of the talk is twofold: first, to give an overview of the current state of the problem, and, the second, to evaluate our capability in scientific publication comprehension (since one of the original paper's authors will presumably attend the talk).
