The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018):
Geoff Burn defines evaluators E0, E1, E2 and E3 which
when applied to an expression, reduce it to varying degrees.
E0 does no evaluation, E1 it evaluates to weak head normal
form (WHNF), E2 evaluates the structure of a list, i.e. it
evaluates it either to NIL or evaluates it to a CONS and then
applies E2 to the second argument of the CONS. E3 evaluates
the structure of a list and evaluates each element of the list
to WHNF. This concept can be extended to data structures
other than lists and forms the basis of the evaluation
transformer style of strictness analysis.
