 Union types allow to capture the possibility of a term to be of several possibly unrelated types. Traditional static approaches to union types are untagged and tagged unions, which present dual advantages in their use. Inspired by recent work on using abstract interpretation to understand gradual typing, we present a novel design for union types, called gradual union types. Gradual union types combine the advantages of tagged and untagged union types, backed by dynamic checks.
