Practical Foundations for Programming Languages

Practical Foundations for Programming Languages
by Robert Harper

2008
Number of pages: 470

Description:
This is a working draft of a book on the foundations of programming languages. The central organizing principle of the book is that programming language features may be seen as manifestations of an underlying type structure that governs its syntax and semantics. The emphasis, therefore, is on the concept of type, which codiļ¬es and organizes the computational universe in much the same way that the concept of set may be seen as an organizing principle for the mathematical universe. The purpose of this book is to explain this remark.
