1976, Robert Milne, Christopher Strachey, A Theory of Programming Language Semantics:
- We believe that the method of mathematical semantics has the applications and properties that we have just mentioned;
1977, J. M. Brady, The Theory of Computer Science: A Programming Approach:
- Indeed, in Section 8 we offer a proof of the while rule of inference using the mathematical semantics of Scott and Strachey.
1979, Program Construction: International Summer School:
- The axiomatic approach is the more widely used of the two; nevertheless mathematical semantics offers several advantages.
1992, Manfred Kersken, Francesca Saglietti, Software Fault Tolerance: Achievement and Assessment Strategies:
- Strachey introduced the general method of defining mathematical semantics as a set of recursively defined functions from syntactic domains to semantic ...
