Lambda-calculus, which is the theoretical basis of practical functional programming languages such as Standard ML, CAML, Haskell etc. This book itself is purely theoretical and principally aimed for researchers/students of its field.

This book is very comprehensive. In fact, this book successfully compiles almost all results on type-free lambda Cited by: 3 The semantics of words based on syntactic category 2/ Computational Semantics: Lambda Calculus Scott Farrar CLMA, University of Washington [email protected] Semantic Analysis Problems One Solution: Calculus -calculus and FOL -calculus and compositionality The File Size: 1MB.

The Lambda Calculus, treated in this book mainly in its untyped version, consists of a collection of expressions, called lambda terms, together with ways how to rewrite and identify these. In the parts conversion, reduction, theories, and models the view is respectively 'algebraic', computational, with more ('coinductive') identifications, and Cited by: @TimOsborne It's about semantics, not syntax.

The former interacts with the latter though. You've read Bresnan's book so you should know what monotonic means (she defines it). The main point is that lambda calculus is useful if used correctly. There are a few papers on glue semantics in LFG, HPSG, and TAG (it works with any theory of syntax).

Chapter 5 THE LAMBDA CALCULUS F unctions play a prominent role in describing the semantics of a pro-gramming language, since the meaning of a computer program can be considered as a function from input values to output values. In addi-tion, functions play. Formal Semantics, Lecture 2 B. Partee, MGU, Febru p.3 MGUdoc 02/21/05 AM 2.

Lambdas A first-order part of the Size: KB. Lambda Calculus as a Notation for Semantics. The λ calculus is a very simple notation for writing down the definition of functions. The syntax of the functional language LISP (and its successor Scheme) are based on the syntax of the λ calculus.

It is also not that different from ML function notation. The simply typed lambda calculus (→), a form of type theory, is a typed interpretation of the lambda calculus with only one type constructor: → that builds function is the canonical and simplest example of a typed lambda calculus.

The simply typed lambda calculus was originally introduced by Alonzo Church in as an attempt to avoid paradoxical uses of the untyped lambda. $\begingroup$ I believe that the book by Henk P. Barendregt “The Lambda Calculus, Its Syntax and Semantics” is too formal to be useful as a first textbook to learn lambda calculus.

I think it is more a reference book for people working in related fields. $\endgroup$ – Виталий Олегович Jun 1 '14 at.
