JavaScript is a programming language that serves as the foundation of front-end web development. The way the language is specified allows for a high variety in possibilities when implementing functionality. These possibilities makes it harder for programmers to make informed decisions when developing.

The goal of this thesis is to give insights into JavaScript features. Given these insights one will be able to elaborate on code written in a professional manner.

This topic is concerned with formal/mathematical semantics for the well known JavaScript interpreted language (see the standard 258p description file). The work starts with studying the 2008 APLAS paper, and related subsequent results, directed to giving formal semantics to JavaScript. Part of the reading will also involve getting acquainted with the classic works on structural operational semantics for programming languages in general (see a book in the IFI library).

The practical benefits of having a formal semantics for a language like JavaScript are multiple:
