About the course
The aim of semantic descriptions is to give an exact definition of the implication of a programming language without uncertainties or ambiguities. This is useful when you need a precise understanding of how a programming language works, e.g. when designing programming languages, when constructing programs that use other programs as data, e.g. compilers, but also for programmers for reference. Different semantic methods and their use are examined with a special focus on operational semantics.
