The Formal Semantics of Programming Languages provides the basic mathematical techniques necessary for those who are beginning a study of the semantics and logics of programming languages. These techniques will allow students to invent, formalize, and justify rules with which to reason about a variety of programming : Glynn Winskel; Michael R Garey; Albert Meyer. "First book-length exposition of the denotational (or `mathematical' or `functional') approach to the formal semantics of programming languages (in contrast to `operational' and `axiomatic' approaches). Treats various kinds of languages, beginning with the pure-lambda-calculus and progressing through languages with states, commands, jumps, and assignments. This somewhat discursive account is a.

Semantics is the discipline that studies linguistic meaning generally, and the qualification ‘formal’ indicates something about the sorts of techniques used in investigating linguistic meaning. More specifically, formal semantics is the discipline that employs techniques from symbolic logic, mathematics, and mathematical logic to produce precisely characterized theories of meaning for.

An operational semantics for a programming language is a means for understanding in precise detail the meaning of an expression in the language. It is the formal speci cation of the language that is used when writing compilers and interpreters, and it allows us to rigorously verify things about the language.
