A view of programming languages by Bernard A Galler ( Book )
10 editions published between 1970 and 1994 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book, suitable for a second course in computer programming at the graduate level, is for undergraduates as well as graduates interested in the design of programming languages and in the implementation of language processors as well as for those who are using computers and are faced with the need for developing data structures appropriate to their problems. Areas covered include Markov Algorithms and primitive elements of programming, the ALGOL language, a general view of data structures, and extendability of languages through definitions. (Author)

Structure and interpretation of computer programs by Harold Abelson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs has had a dramatic impact on computer science curricula over the past decade. This long-awaited revision contains changes throughout the text." "There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in the book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the course at MIT since the first edition was published." "A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many new exercises." "In addition, all the programs have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard."--Jacket

Draft Software Metrics Panel final report : papers presented at the 30 June 1980 meeting on software metrics, Washington, DC ( Book )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Software metrics is a new area of computer science aimed at assigning quantitative indices of merit to software. Here software means more than simple source code; 'software' as a generic for all the stages of tailoring a computer system to solve a problem is used here. All software passes through the following seven stages in its life cycle: (1) requirements analysis, (2) specification, (3) design, (4) implementation, (5) testing and integration, (6) maintenance and enhancement, and (7) replacement or retirement. Since software specification is always imprecise and since the demands on software change with time, backtrack cycles to earlier stages often take place. It is not uncommon for several stages to co-exist and influence each others progress

Social processes and proofs of theorems and programs by Georgia Institute of Technology ( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It has been extensively argued that the art and science of programming should strive to become more like mathematics. In this paper we argue that this point of view is correct, but that the reasons usually given for it are wrong. We present our view that mathematics is, rather than a formal process, an ongoing social process and that the formalistic view of mathematics is misleading and destructive for proving software.

A preliminary sketch of Formula ALGOL by Alan J Perlis ( Book )
3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In earlier years algebraic languages, list processing languages and string manipulating languages have existed separately from one another. Recently, formula manipulating languages have evolved, and, in addition, there have been efforts to combine various different kinds of processing into one language. The design of Formula Algol represents an effort in this direction. Specifically, Formula Algol is an extension to Algol providing formula manipulating, list processing, and limited string capabilities. Thus, Formula Algol is a language in which the advantages of these various different kinds of processing are combined, but we anticipate that Formula Algol will be particularly well adapted to algebraic symbol manipulating processes
A DEFINITION OF FORMULA ALGOL by Alan J Perlis ( Book )
2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Formula Algol is an extension to ALGOL 60 incorporating formula manipulation and list processing. This paper defines a current version of the Formula Algol language which is implemented on the CDC G-20. (Author)
