We will discuss the meeting time and basic course administrivia.
Please contact me if you miss the first meeting concerning
meeting times, meeting place, and covered material.
The course consists of three parts:
- Operational Semantics, the study of a mathematical
specification of a the behavior of all programs;
- Basic Type Systems and Type Soundness, the study of type
systems and their relationship to an operational semantics;
- Advanced Type Systems, the study of type systems for
complex language constructs.
