The book by Pierce (available from the library) is strongly
recommended as it covers a broad range of (operational) semantics and
typing in a modern and widely praised manner. Some of the lectures
will follow the book. The Haskell book by Hutton (available from the
library) may not be needed for students with existing background in
functional programming, or with access to another introduction to
functional programming (with Haskell). In fact, the lecture and the
lab may just provide enough material and pointers to suffice without a
book on Haskell. Students who want to study Haskell more
systematically and who are generally in favor of learning from books
should consider this recommendation though. The book by Nielson and Nielson
(available online [.pdf])
is recommended as it provides some general overview on formal
semantics approaches and illustrations of the use of formal
semantics. Some of the lectures will follow the book.
