CS 6110 - Advanced Programming Languages

General Information

Like CS 4110 - Programming Languages and Logics, but on steroids. Much more mathematical in nature.


You probably want to know CS 3110 - Data Structures and Functional Programming and like CS 4110 - Programming Languages and Logics

Topics Covered

  • Inductive proof
  • Operational semantics
  • Language features and translation
  • Axiomatic semantics
  • Denotational semantics
  • Type systems


(Spring 2011) Not too bad. Six homeworks, a prelim (with in-class and take-home portions), and a final. Homework can be done in groups.

General Advice


I took CS 3110 - Data Structures and Functional Programming and CS 6110. I feel like this course was “too much information,” and I would have been happy with just CS 4110 - Programming Languages and Logics instead, since some of the proofs were tedious and some of the topics went a bit over my head.

This class was easy but boring.
