Program analysis concerns static techniques for computing reliable approximate information about the dynamic behaviour of programs. Applications include compilers (for code improvement), software validation (for detecting errors in algorithms or breaches of security) and transformations between data representation (for solving problems such as the Y2K problem).

Pretty Cool. Probably the best book about static analysis

It is dense. Really dense, overly dense, and a lot could have been explained better. Uses the words 'clearly' 'obviously' 'naturally follows' on more than numerous occasions to cover up huge logical leaps.

This book is a HARD read. Really hard.

It will blow your mind though.

The Knaster-Tarski least fixed point theorem is a beautiful piece of mathematics.

Seeing what it can enable in programing languages is life changing.
