Expressions containing this cussed in the next section, we permit an arbitrary use of operator can be "invalidated" (or made nonconstant) if return jump functions, relying on the acyclic call graph later passes reveal that the variable is aliased.

One important case of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra is that every nonconstant polynomial with real coefficients must have at least one complex root.

The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra is a mathematical theorem stating that every nonconstant complex numbers has at least one complex number as a root.

Any vari  two ways: directly in our own compiler and by using lRn able involved in an alias with a variable which is as a preprocessor to generate modified source for compi  modified is assumed to be nonconstant. lation by existing optimizing compilers like IBM's VS Once the effects of aliasing and the side effects of Fortran and DEC's VMS Fortran. external procedure calls have been incorporated into the There is one important extension to the technique expression trees representing the jump functions, the presented here.
