Value Types in Object-Oriented Programming Languages

Hi, Vlad,

again, I must apologize for not writing the thesis in English.
(It would have taken me one year longer at least.  No joke, my English 
writing abilities is horrible and slow.
Probably I could try to run the thesis through an automatic translator?)
I shall be happy to answer questions or explain the essential parts in 
English, by writing or talking.

A few month ago, we (my supervisor and me) have published a conference 
article about the separation of value types and object types and its 
implications on equality and identity. (A so-called "modified equality 
contract" plays an important role in it.)
The article is merely a small part of our work (it roughly corresponds 
to chapter 8 of the thesis), yet it gives an impression of the way a 
programming model changes if values and objects are consequently 
separated. And most important of all - the article is written in 
English. :-)  Here is the link:

Cheers, Beate
