Type Systems for Programming Languages
by


Number of pages: 199

Description:
These notes were prepared for use in the graduate course Computer Science 15–814: Type Systems for Programming Languages at Carnegie Mellon University. Their purpose is to provide a unified account of the role of type theory in programming language design and implementation. The stress is on the use of types as a tool for analyzing programming language features and studying their implementation. The course studies the theory of type systems, with a focus on applications of type systems to practical programming languages. The emphasis is on the mathematical foundations underlying type systems and operational semantics. The course includes a broad survey of the components that make up existing type systems, and also teaches the methodology behind the design of new type systems.
