The aim of the course is to introduce the structural, operational approach to programming language semantics. The course shows how this formalism is used to specify the meaning of some simple programming language constructs and to reason formally about semantic properties of programs.

This course is about building computational processes. We need computational processes for computing functions. The means for performing computational processes are programs. The emphasis is on programming languages and their properties.

Denotational semantics is a methodology for giving mathematical meaning to programming languages and systems. This book was written to make denotational semantics accessible to a wider audience and to update existing texts in the area.

The book teaches how to program by employing the tools of abstraction and modularity. The central philosophy is that programming is the task of breaking large problems into small ones. You will learn how to program and how to think about programming.
