    The main idea of the book is to explain and teach the concept of trustworthy compilers based on 50+ years of worldwide experience in the area of compilers, and on the author's own 30+ years of expertise in development and teaching compilers.The book covers most of the topics related to compiler development - both classical compiling phases and techniques as lexical analysis, parsing, semantic analysis, intermediate and object code generation, code optimization, and many novel approaches to compilation. Compiling methods not covered enough by other books on compilers, including trustworthy compiler, verifying compiler, certifying compiler, and certified compiler will be discussed at length. The book will also cover the innovative and efficient compilation techniques developed by the author used in commercial compiler development with Sun and other firms, patented by four USA software patents.The book also covers many state of the art in compiler development tools, and personal experience of their use in research projects by the author and his team, including Microsoft Phoenix, ANTLR, SableCC, DiaGen, and AGG.
