A summary is provided of the specification for­ mat used in this book. The format is adapted from that Guttag and Liskov [10] developed for the CLU language. It consists of relatively few constructs, is semi­ formal by providing a rigorous definition of the syntax and semantics of opera­ tions, and it provides powerful facilities for defining abstract data types. 1.1 Specification of Procedure Abstractions Specification of a procedure requires a full description of syntax and semantics. Syntax the name of the procedure by name, the name and type of each ar­ gument or result, and the order in which the arguments and results occur.
