Format: Paperback
A classic in its field, and a must-read for students of Computer Science. Not recommended for lay readers. Its back cover reads:

This informal, nonmathematical introduction to the descriptive tech¬niques of denotational semantics provides the framework needed to formally describe programming languages on the level of ALGOL 60 and PASCAL. No previous knowledge of these languages or of the theory of computation is assumed. Drawn from course material used successfully by the author for several years, this book clearly explains how denota¬tional semantics combines powerful descriptive notation with a rigorous theory to aid in the design, analysis, and comparison of programming languages. By avoiding the underlying mathematics, beginning students are given a precise, intuitive understanding of semantic concepts to¬gether with a solid working knowledge of notation.
Designed for use as an elementary introduction at the junior/senior level, this book is also well-suited for use by professional language designers and first-year graduate students who need a simple introduction to denotational methods.
