Marcus Kracht

Spring 2007

Time: Tuesday and Thursday 2 - 4 pm
Place: Rolfe 3114

Short Description of the Course

This course will deal with two topics: first we shall take a closer look at polynomial time parsable languages, in particular linear context free rewrite systems (LCFRSs). We shall develop some techniques for parsing such languages and then try to combine them with semantics to develop some real life examples of languages that are trans context free and yet can be coupled with a decent semantics using LCFRSs.
