The revised edition contains a new chapter which provides an elegant description of the semantics. The various classes of lambda calculus models are described in a uniform calculue. Some didactical improvements have been made to this edition.
An example of a simple model is given and then the general theory of categorical models is developed.

Oct 14, Nick Black rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve heard much about this book, supposedly the supreme brendregt to rigorous type-free LC. Tales are told and ballads sung of its epic difficulty; I admit fair intimidation. I’d like to get a copy before next summer, so I can churn through it prior to taking CS or whatever they’re calling the graduate programming language theory class these days.
Supposedly, this is a great I’ve heard much about this book, supposedly the supreme guide to rigorous type-free LC. Supposedly, this is a great follow-up to Benjamin Pierce ‘s books, which I found generally excellent.
Barendregt has put together an awe-inspiring work, but not one that’s meant to be chewed through. Unfortunately, skimming seems an impossibility, given the supremely striated content — I tried jumping pages several times, and immediately had no idea what was going on.
I was willing to give it time, but 10 chapters in or so, I haven’t gained much insight; The Lambda CalculusVolume in the Studies of Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics and almost certainly the largest and best-known heh, possibly known to about 50k people worldwide, and that’s being very generous is certainly a pillar of computing and type calculhs, but I’m content to trust the good Dutchman that it all works.
It appears I’m never to be a category theorist; so it must, I suppose, go. I finally understand combinators on an axiomatic, theoretical level, which ghe always kind of bugged me especially as my home workstation — since being rebuilt inanyway — has been named recombinator although that’s a reference to biocomputing rather than computation theory!
