The Formal Semantics of Programming Languages: An by Glynn Winskel

By Glynn Winskel

The Formal Semantics of Programming Languages offers the elemental mathematical thoughts priceless in the event you are starting a research of the semantics and logics of programming languages. those concepts will let scholars to invent, formalize, and justify ideas with which to cause a few number of programming languages. even if the remedy is trouble-free, a number of of the subjects lined are drawn from fresh learn, together with the important zone of concurency. The booklet comprises many workouts starting from uncomplicated to miniprojects. beginning with simple set thought, structural operational semantics is brought so one can outline the that means of programming languages besides linked facts concepts. Denotational and axiomatic semantics are illustrated on an easy language of while-programs, and fall proofs are given of the equivalence of the operational and denotational semantics and soundness and relative completeness of the axiomatic semantics. an evidence of Godel's incompleteness theorem, which emphasizes the impossibility of attaining an absolutely entire axiomatic semantics, is incorporated. it's supported by means of an appendix supplying an advent to the idea of computability in keeping with while-programs.

This paintings is prolonged to lan guages with better and recursive kinds, together with a therapy of the keen and lazy lambda-calculi. all through, the connection among denotational and operational semantics is under pressure, and the proofs of the correspondence among the operation and denotational semantics are supplied. The remedy of recursive varieties - one of many extra complex elements of the ebook - will depend on using info platforms to symbolize domain names. The booklet concludes with a bankruptcy on parallel programming languages, followed by way of a dialogue of tools for specifying and verifying nondeterministic and parallel courses.
