About the Authors
  • Domain theory is the mathematical framework that is used to model the semantics of computer programs and the theory of computation. This is the first book on the subject that attempts to provide a rigorous introduction to the topic in a manner accessible to computer scientists by motivating the mathematics with computer science examples.

    • First elementary, self-contained but rigorous treatment
    • Class-tested at several universities
    • Can be used as text or reference
