Cooper, KeithDr. Cooper, Professor, Dept. of Computer Science at Rice University, is the leader of the Massively Scalar Compiler Project at Rice, which investigates issues relating to optimization and code generation for modern machines. He is also a member of the Center for High Performance Software Research, the Computer and Information Technology Institute, and the Center for Multimedia Communication -- all at Rice. He teaches courses in Compiler Construction at the undergraduate and graduate level.
Torczon, LindaLinda Torczon is a principal investigator on the Massively Scalar Compiler Project at Rice University, and the Grid Application Development Software Project sponsored by the next Generation Software program of the National Science Foundation. She also serves as the executive director of HiPerSoft and of the Los Alamos Computer Science Institute. Her research interests include code generation, interprocedural dataflow analysis and optimization, and programming environments.
This entirely updated 2e of Engineering a Compiler is full of technical updates and new material covering the latest developments in compiler technology. In this comprehensive text, students will learn important techniques for constructing a modern compiler. The authors, Keith Cooper and Linda Torczon, leading educators and researchers, have built several state-of-the-art compilers. In this book, they combine basic principles with pragmatic insights from their experience to help explain important techniques, such as the compilation of imperative and object-oriented languages, construction of static single-assignment form, instruction scheduling, and graph-coloring register allocation.
