The book explains what alternatives are available to the language designer, how language constructs should be used for safety and readability, how language constructs are implemented, the role of language in expressing and enforcing abstractions.

Understanding programming languages requires knowledge of the underlying theoretical model. This book explores aspects of programming that are amenable to mathematical proof. It describes a simple and comprehensive theory.

This little book comes from a short graduate course on typed lambda-calculus given at the Universite Paris. It is not intended to be encyclopedic and the selection of topics was really quite haphazard. Some very basic knowledge of logic is needed.

Provides an 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.
