Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the theoretical foundations of programming languages ​​belonging to three different programming paradigms: imperative, functional and concurrent. In particular, techniques are provided for the definition of formal semantics and tools for analyzing programs at compile time.

At the end of the course, the student will be able to formally define a new programming language, also in a research context, through a formal operational semantics and type systems for a static analysis of the correctness of the programs written in the language.

This knowledge will allow the student to: i) formally test the propriety of an arbitrary semantics using different techniques of induction; ii) formally test the correctness of a type system; iii) master semantic behavioral equivalences to compare the dynamic behavior of two different programs.

At the end of the course, the student will be able: i) to compare different languages ​​and choose between them the most appropriate according to the context of use and to make the most appropriate design choices when defining a new language; ii) to continue independently his/her studies in the field of programming languages ​​and software development independently.

Examination Methods

To pass the exam the student must show:
• to be able to define the operational semantics and type systems for some simple imperative, functional and interactive program language;
• to be able to prove properties of an operational semantics using various forms of induction (mathematical, structural, and rule-based);
• to be familiar with some operationally-based notions of semantic equivalence of program phrases and their basic properties.

The exam consists of a written test containing 4 or 5 exercises. The correct conduct of all exercises allows for a 30/30 vote.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE
