applicative order reduction
<programming> An evaluation strategy under which an expression is
evaluated by repeatedly evaluating its leftmost innermost redex. This means that
a function's arguments are evaluated before the function is applied. This method
will not terminate if a function is given a nonterminating expression as an
argument even if the function is not strict in that argument. Also known as
callbyvalue since the values of arguments are passed rather than their names.
This is the evaluation strategy used by ML, Scheme, Hope and most procedural
languages such as C and Pascal.
See also normal order reduction, parallel reduction.
