      The goal Introducing students to the concepts of advanced algorithms and techniques in the field of compiler construction. Introducing students to the use of advanced toolsets for compiler construction.
      The outcome Students should be able to: Demonstrate understanding, critical analysis and application of existing theories, models and techniques in the field of construction of compilers and interpreters. Learn new theories, models, techniques and technologies as they appear. Meets the applicative and research tasks in these areas.
      Contents of lectures Advanced topics lexical and syntactic analysis: GLR, PEG and packrat parsers. Advanced semantic analysis, IR generatiion. Execution environment other topics: strategies allocating and freeing dynamic memory, specifics of virtual machines. Code generators based on a rewritable grammars. Translating object-oriented language constructs. Code Optimization methods . Advanced toolsets LLVM and others.
