Trends in Compiler Construction Compiler writing techniques have undergone a number of major revisions over the past forty

years. The introduction of object-oriented design and implementation techniques promises to improve the quality of compilers, while making large-scal e compiler development more manageable. In this seminar you want to show that a new way of thinking of a compiler's stru cture is required to achieve complete object-orientation. This new view on compi ling can lead to alternative formulations of parsing and code generation. In pra ctice, the object-oriented formulations have not only proven to be highly effici ent, but the have also been particularly easy to teach to students.


WiMAX, meaning Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommuni cations technology that provides wireless transmission of data using a variety o f transmission modes, from point-to-point links to portable internet access[cita tion needed]. The technology provides up to 75 Mbit/s symmetric broadband speed without the need for cables. The technology is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard (also called Broadband Wireless Access). The name WiMAX was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformity and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as a standards-based technology enabli ng the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cabl e and DSL . The terms fixed WiMAX , mobile WiMAX , 802.16d and 802.16e are frequently used incorrec Correct definitions are the following: 802.16-2004 is often called 802.16d, since that was the working party that devel oped the standard. It is also frequently referred to as fixed WiMAX since it has n o support for mobility. 802.16e-2005 is an amendment to 802.16-2004 and is often referred to in shortene d form as 802.16e. It introduced support for mobility, amongst other things and is therefore also known as mobile WiMAX .
