Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kenneth Louden and Kenneth Lambert's new edition of PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE, 3E gives advanced undergraduate students an overview of programming languages through general principles combined with details about many modern languages. Major languages used in this edition include C, C++, Smalltalk, Java, Ada, ML, Haskell, Scheme, and Prolog; many other languages are discussed more briefly. The text also contains extensive coverage of implementation issues, the theoretical foundations of programming languages, and a large number of exercises, making it the perfect bridge to compiler courses and to the theoretical study of programming languages.

Synopsis:

Kenneth Louden's new edition of Programming Languages: Principles and Practice provides students with an overview of key issues in the study of programming languages. Rather than focus on individual language issues, Kenneth Louden focuses on language paradigms and concepts that are common to all languages. Louden also includes materials that are not frequently found in other introductory texts, such as implementation issues and theoretical foundations of programming languages. Coverage of these topics helps serve as a bridge to students' compiler courses and other theoretical computer science courses.
