Semantics With Applications: A Formal Introduction
by Hanne Riis Nielson, Flemming Nielson
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons 1992
Number of pages: 250
The book covers the foundations of structural operational semantics (where computations consist of many small steps) and natural semantics (where computations consist of one big step). It shows how to describe the semantics of declarative as well as imperative language constructs and will also touch upon non-sequential constructs. It also presents proof principles for operational semantics and investigate the relationship between the two approaches to operational semantics. Problems from areas such as compiler construction, software validation, and program verication will be used to demonstrate the practical utility of semantics.

The text for advanced undergraduate/graduate students of computer science. It introduces functional, imperative and logic programming and explains how to do it correctly. Functional programming is presented as a programming language in its own right.

These notes present principles and applications of static analysis of programs. We cover type analysis, lattice theory, control flow graphs, dataflow analysis, fixed-point algorithms, narrowing and widening, control flow analysis, pointer analysis.
