Objectives Understanding the fundamental principles and concepts of programming languages. Discussion of these concepts by their history, their implementations in different programming languages, their design considerations as well as their advantages and shortcomings. Students also gain some familiarity with selected programming languages.
Subject Overview (classification, history), imperative languages (scoping, typing, modularization), object-oriented languages (concepts and mechanisms, pure object-oriented languages, blocks, co- and contravariance, genericity, multiple inheritance, prototypes), functional languages (Lisp, Scheme, Haskell, functional concepts in object-oriented languages), Logic programming (unification, Prolog).

Exercises: Two programming projects: a) in a purely object-oriented language, b) in a functional programming language.

Criteria for evaluation Written exam at the end of the semester as well as the submission and evaluation of both programming projects.
