[plt-scheme] coroutine versus stream

Thanks very much.
Following your pointer, I downloaded Talcott's dissertation for free.

Internet is a maze, apparently for both suppliers and clients.

  You may wish to have a look at Talcott's "Programming and Proving with Function and Control Abstractions", a set of lecture notes on "Rum" from 1986:

  Whether it's worthwhile or not, Proquest/UMI is where I got a copy of Talcott's dissertation, several years ago. The 'right' entry point into their site for individuals to order dissertations is:

  But I do see that prices are substantially higher for shipment to Europe.

  Thanks for warning me, 
  Tomorrow I'll be in Barcelona (Spain) and have a look at the university library there, although I am not sure they have a strong department for informatics/mathematics. 
  Next week I'll be in the neighbourhood of Amsterdam and may have a look in the library of the CWI (Centrum for Mathematica and Informatica) Lot's of friendly people there wo can poi nt me to the right documents. May be I can find time to visit some libraries of the the University of Amsterdam (where I did my studies in mathematics and physics and have worked as a researcher) Also a good opportunity to meet some former colleagues. 
  The matter interests me. Mathematical proof of equivalences would be interesting, although I always have trouble getting acquanted with unfamiliar notations. I also have this problem of not understanding a theorem and even not being able to use a theorem until I think "why did I not discover this myself?" (off topic I'm afraid) 
  Any people on this list living near Barcelona ??? (for me near = +- within 300 km) 
  I live in Mataró (in the northern part of the mediterranean coast of Spain)
