Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation

Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation
by Shriram Krishnamurthi

Publisher: Lulu.com 2007
Number of pages: 376

The book is the textbook for the programming languages course at Brown University, which is taken primarily by third and fourth year undergraduates and beginning graduate (both MS and PhD) students. It seems very accessible to smart second year students too, and indeed those are some of my most successful students. The book has been used at over a dozen other universities as a primary or secondary text. The book’s material is worth one undergraduate course worth of credit. The author wants to show students where languages come from, why we should regard languages as the ultimate form of abstraction, how to recognize such an evolving abstraction, and how to turn what they recognize into a language.
