Programming Theory

Programming theory deals with the design, implementation, analysis, characterization, and classification of programming languages and their individual features, along with introductory programming concepts like program structure, variable declaration and conditional and looping constructs. Sub-disciplines include the formal semantics of programming languages, type theory, program analysis and transformation, comparative programming language analysis, metaprogramming, domain-specific languages, compiler construction and run-time systems.
