The author proposes a new approach for multimethod implementation in C++ based on recursive deferred dispatching. The proposed approach provides a partially broken dependency between target classes and a broken dependency between target classes and multimethods. This approach provides multimethods with strong type safety and constant execution time. A multimethod is a virtual method of several objects. Programming languages such as Dylan and the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS) allow for multimethods
