## Introduction to the theory of programming languages

## Introduction to the Theory of Programming Languages

The design and implementation of programming languages, from Fortran and Cobol to Caml and Java, has been one of the key developments in the management of ever more complex computerized systems. Introduction to the Theory of Programming Languages gives the reader the means to discover the tools to think, design, and implement these languages. It proposes a unified vision of the different formalisms that permit definition of a programming language: small steps operational semantics, big steps operational semantics, and denotational semantics, emphasising that all seek to define a relation between three objects: a program, an input value, and an output value. These formalisms are illustrated by presenting the semantics of some typical features of programming languages: functions, recursivity, assignments, records, objects, ... showing that the study of programming languages does not consist of studying languages one after another, but is organized around the features that are present in these various languages. The study of these features leads to the development of evaluators, interpreters and compilers, and also type inference algorithms, for small languages.
## The Implementation of Functional Programming Languages

## Introduction to the Theory of Complexity

The aim of this book is to review in a systematic way the most significant results obtained in the study of computational complexity theory. A balanced approach which is partly algorithmic and partly structuralist is followed. From an algorithmic point of view, the book is concerned with properties of complexity classes, and identification of structural properties of sets that affect their computational complexity.
## The Craft of Programming

## Mathematical theory of program correctness

Basic concepts. While statements. Subscripted variables. Recursive procedures. Blocks. Nondeterministic statements. Weakest preconditions, strongest postconditions and termination. Parameter mechanisms. Goto statements.
## Theories of Programming Languages

First published in 1998, this textbook is a broad but rigourous survey of the theoretical basis for the design, definition and implementation of programming languages and of systems for specifying and proving programme behaviour. Both imperative and functional programming are covered, as well as the ways of integrating these aspects into more general languages. Recognising a unity of technique beneath the diversity of research in programming languages, the author presents an integrated treatment of the basic principles of the subject. He identifies the relatively small number of concepts, such as compositional semantics, binding structure, domains, transition systems and inference rules, that serve as the foundation of the field. Assuming only knowledge of elementary programming and mathematics, this text is perfect for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in programming language theory and also will appeal to researchers and professionals in designing or implementing computer languages.
## Advanced Programming Language Design

This accessible new volume examines and evaluates the principles of programming languages from both their common and language-specific elements. Each chapter is devoted to a particular programming language issue. These issues are illustrated with an example from one of the many programming languages used today.
## An Introduction to Functional Programming

This is a thorough introduction to the fundamental concepts of functional programming.The book clearly expounds the construction of functional programming as a process of mathematical calculation, but restricts itself to the mathematics relevant to actual program construction. It covers simple and abstract datatypes, numbers, lists, examples, trees, and efficiency. It includes a simple, yet coherent treatment of the Haskell class; a calculus of time complexity; and new coverage of monadic input-output.
## Introduction to Optimization Theory

## Computational Category Theory

## Communicating sequential processes

## Computer Science with MATHEMATICA ®

This introductory course shows scientists and engineers how Mathematica can be used to do scientific computations.
## A Discipline of Programming

Executional abstraction; The role of programming languages; States and their characterization; The characterization of semantics; The semantic characterization of a programming language; Two theorems; On the design of properly terminating; Euclid's algorithm revisited; The formal treatment of some small examples; The linear search theorem; The problem of the next permutation.
## Compiler Construction

A refreshing antidote to heavy theoretical tomes, this book is a concise, practical guide to modern compiler design and construction by an acknowledged master. Readers are taken step-by-step through each stage of compiler design, using the simple yet powerful method of recursive descent to create a compiler for Oberon-0, a subset of the author's Oberon language. A disk provided with the book gives full listings of the Oberon-0 compiler and associated tools. The hands-on, pragmatic approach makes the book equally attractive for project-oriented courses in compiler design and for software engineers wishing to develop their skills in system software.
## Structured Programming

Precision programming. Elements of logical expression. Elements of program expression. Structured programs. Reading structured programs. The correctness of structured programs. Writing structured programs.
## Principles of Concurrent and Distributed Programming

Award for Outstanding Contribution to Computer Science Education. Software today is inherently concurrent or distributed - from event-based GUI designs to operating and real-time systems to Internet applications. The new edition of this classic introduction to concurrency has been completely revised in view of the growing importance of concurrency constructs embedded in programming languages and of formal methods such as model checking that are widely used in industry.
## Prolog Programming in Depth

This text covers natural language processing in Prolog and presumes knowledge of Prolog, but not of linguistics. It includes simple but practical database query systems; covers syntax, formal semantics, and morphology; emphasizes working computer programs that implement subsystems of a natural language processor; features programs that are clearly designed and compatible with any Edinburgh-compatible prolog implementation (Quintas, ESL, Arity, ALS etc.); and contains nearly 100 hands-on Prolog programming exercises and problem sets.
