Course Description

About compilers course


The course is intended to teach the students the basic techniques that underlie the practice of Compiler Construction. The course will introduce the theory and tools that can be standardly employed in order to perform syntax-directed translation of a high-level programming language into an executable code.

These techniques can also be employed in wider areas of application, whenever we need a syntax-directed analysis of symbolic expressions and languages and their translation into a lower-level description. They have multiple applications for man-machine interaction, including verification and program analysis.
