Programming Language Theory

FIT-TJDAcad. year: 2022/2023

Types of programming languages: procedural and declarative, diferencies from the semantic point of view. The problem of the programming languages semantic formal definition. Various ways of the programming languages semantic formal definition. The axiomatic definition of the formal semantic: Floyd-Hoare logic. The denotation definition of the formal sematic: lambda calculus. The technology of the programming languages translation after a parsing. The solution of the context features of programming languages in the syntax-directed context-free compiler. Type systems. Target code generation. Methods of registes assignment. The target code generation for pipeline processors.
