Denotational semantics is a methodology for giving mathematical meaning to programming languages and systems. This book was written to make denotational semantics accessible to a wider audience and to update existing texts in the area.
This book is an attempt to describe a bit of the programming languages zoo. We use each of the particular languages to introduce fundamental notions related to the design and the implementation of general purpose programming languages.
