CS522 - Programming Language Semantics (Fall 2018)
Students enrolled in this class are expected to check this web page regularly. Lecture notes and important other material will be posted here.
Course Description
CS522 is an advanced course on semantics of programming languages. Various semantic approaches and related aspects will be defined and investigated. Executable semantics of various programming languages and paradigms will be discussed, together with major theoretical models.

---|
The following exercises are from the book material above. Do them only in Maude (that is, not on paper) by modifying the provided Maude code for HW1
): Exercise 56 (page 137); Exercise 70 (page 155). In case you are not familiar with Maude, you are encouraged to do the following exercises to warm-up (but please do not include them as part of your HW1 submission): Exercise 30; Exercise 32; Exercise 33; Exercise 35; Exercise 36. All at pages 80/81. |

- Simply-Typed Lambda Calculus
- Category theory: definition, diagrams, cones and limits, exponentials.
- Cartesian Closed Categories as models for simply-typed lambda-calculus.
- Recursion, Types, Polymorphism
