Graduate text on mathematical foundations of programming languages, and operational and denotational semantics.
From reviews of the hardback: '... extremely useful as a reference for classical results and techniques in general domain theory, very balanced in the treatment of mathematical properties of domains and their operational motivations and applications, and always deep in the choice of topics and in unravelling the connections between them.' Felice Cardone, Science of Computer Programming From reviews of the hardback: 'This is an excellent, thorough monograph ... a rich and comprehensive source of information, it is very useful as a reference to classical results in domain theory and lambda calculus.'
