        Vernon Lee did some work on dynamic slicing in his dissertation at
Rice University, advised by Hans Boehm. Vernon is now at Zycad
(spelling?) and Hans at Xerox PARC, but I don't have their addresses
        Vernon was working on constructive real arithmetic. The
representation allows computation to an arbitrary number of digits
(assuming sufficient computational resources). If, for some reason, one
needs more precision on a value already computed, one would like to
recompute on a backward dynamic slice rather than repeat the whole
        I think this tech report is Vernon's dissertation:

Rice COMP TR91-159
Optimizing Programs Over the Constructive Reals,
Vernon A. Lee Jr., April 1991. ($15.00)

        A short presentation of the work is in

Vernon Lee and Hans Boehm, "Optimizing Programs over the
Construct Reals," SIGPLAN '90, pages 102-111.
