The book presents the typically difficult subject of formal methods in an informal, easy-to-follow manner. Readers with a basic grounding in discreet mathematics will be able to understand the practical applications of these difficult concepts.

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.

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.

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