XML and Programming Languages, Summer Term 2009
We study query and transformation languages for XML processing, both from a pragmatic perspective and regarding their semantic underpinnings.
- declarative programming
- formal language theory
- mathematical logic
The lectures and tutorials are scheduled for Monday 14:50-16:20 (DS 5), every week, and Friday 14:50-16:20 (DS 5), every second week, all in room INF E005.
