FIT-VYPaAcad. year: 2017/2018
This course discusses the construction of compilers in detail. This discussion concentrates on the following three topics: (I) Advanced topics of classical compilers: LR-table construction, general precedence analysis, general methods of syntax analysis, advanced methods of optimization. (II) Principles of parallel compilers: parallel compiler structure, fundamental methods of parallel syntax analysis, basic models of parallel translation. (III) Formal translation models and their properties: transducers, translation grammars, properties of syntax directed translation, formal language properties relevant to compilers, modern translation models.
