A classic in denotational description of programminglanguages book field, and a must-read for students of Computer Science. Not recommended for lay readers. Its back cover reads: This informal, nonmathematical introduction to the descriptive tech¬niques of denotational semantics provides the framework needed to formally describe programming languages on the level of ALGOL 60 and PASCAL/5.

CHAPTER 9 DENOTATIONAL SEMANTICS Syntactically, a phrase in a programming language is deﬁned in terms of its constituent parts by its BNF speciﬁcation. The decomposition of language phrases into their subphrases is reﬂected in the abstract syntax of the pro- gramming language as well.

Denotational semantics is a methodology for giving mathematical meaning to programming languages and systems. It was developed by Christopher Strachey’s Programming Research Group at Oxford University in the s.

In computer science, denotational semantics (initially known as mathematical semantics or Scott–Strachey semantics) is an approach of formalizing the meanings of programming languages by constructing mathematical objects (called denotations) that describe the meanings of expressions from the languages.

Semantics will have an important role to play in the future development of software systems and domain specific languages, and there is a real need for an introductory book that presents the fundamental ideas behind these approaches; stresses their relationship by formulating and proving the relevant theorems; and illustrates the applications of semantics in computer science.

Book Excerpts: Denotational semantics is a methodology for giving mathematical meaning to programming languages and systems. It was developed by Christopher Strachey's Programming Research Group at Oxford University in the s.

The method combines mathematical rigor, due to the work of Dana Scott, with notational elegance, due to Strachey. Semantics of Programming Languages exposes the basic motivations and philosophy underlying the applications of semantic techniques in computer science.

It introduces the mathematical theory of programming languages with an emphasis on higher-order functions and type systems. Designed as a text for upper-level and graduate-level students, the mathematically sophisticated approach will also.

Book Description: The Formal Semantics of Programming Languages provides the basic mathematical techniques necessary for those who are beginning a study of the semantics and logics of programming languages. These techniques will allow students to invent, formalize, and justify rules with which to reason about a variety of programming.Programming Languages; Instructor: Assistant Professor Raffi Khatchadourian.

Course Description. This course is intended to be a survey on the fundamental concepts and principles that underlie current and emerging methods, tools, and techniques for the design and implementation of modern programming languages.
