Description:
This book is about partial evaluation, a program optimization technique also known as program specialization. It presents general principles for constructing partial evaluators for a variety of programming languages, and it gives examples of applications and numerous references to the literature. Partial evaluation works with program texts rather than mathematical functions: a partial evaluator is an algorithm which, when given a program and some of its input data, produces a so-called residual or specialized program. Running the residual program on the remaining input data will yield the same result as running the original program on all of its input data.

This is an introduction to program analysis that is meant to be elementary. Rather than using flow charts as the model of programs, the book uses program graphs as the model of programs. This makes the underlying ideas more accessible to students.
