Covariance And Contravariance (computer Science) - Avoiding The Need For Covariant Argument Types

Castagna showed that types used for runtime selection of the method are covariant, while types not used for runtime selection of the method are contravariant ... In Castagna's work, examples which would suggest the usage of covariance for parameter types are treated with the usage of multiple dispatch, i.e ...
