Course detail

Selected Topics on Language Parsing and Translation

FIT-APDAcad. year: 2019/2020

This course discusses selected advanced topic on language parsing and compilation. It concentrates especially on the recent research results from the studied area. Nevertheless, it also presents topics usually not discussed because of their complexity even if the topics are not new. In details, it is presented theory of the parsing and compilation together with practical aspects of analyzer/compiler construction.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Both theoretical and practical knowledge and experience from language analyzer/compiler construction based on new and advance technology.

Prerequisites

formal languages and automata, principles of compiler construction, graph theory, complexity

Co-requisites

Not applicable.

Recommended optional programme components

Not applicable.
