Practical Foundations for Programming Languages
by Robert Harper
Publisher: Carnegie Mellon University 2016
Number of pages: 580
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 codiﬁes 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.

The book teaches the reader the art of precise logical reasoning and the practical use of a proof assistant as a tool for formal proofs about computer science artefacts. All the mathematics is formalised in Isabelle and much of it is executable.

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.
