Description:
 Aims: To develop a detailed understanding of a body of mathematical theory that is used in the formal conceptual analysis of programming languages.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of the unit, successful students will be able to:
1. give the central definitions and theorems of one of the mathematical theories underlying the formal study of programming languages;
2. use a mathematical theory to give a formal description of computational phenomena;
3. evaluate a new mathematical theory that is proposed as providing formal support for computation.
Skills: Problem Solving, Communication, Application of Number.
Content:
* Syntactic models of computation (e.g. the simplytyped lambdacalculus, an abstract imperative programming language)
* Semantic models of computation (e.g. cartesian closed categories, domains, denotational and operational models)
* The use of logic as applied to computation (e.g. the CurryHoward isomorphism, program logics).
