ACM CHI+GI 1987 Issue 33 - MIT visible language workshop

The algebraic specification of the semantics of programming languages is outlined. Particular emphasis is given to the problem of specifying least-fixed points by first-order conditional equations. To cover this issue; the theory of specifying partial heterogeneous algebras by abstract data types is slightly extended by a more general notion of homomorphism. In this framework the semantics of programming languages can be uniquely specified in a purel algebraic way; using particular models of a hierarchy of abstract types.
