Starting the reading

This year is almost gone, and I have in mind to start fully productive in January with my Master Thesis at Linköping University for the master program in Computer Science, so I decided to spend the most of this december in reading some interesting references for my master thesis.

First, I have to start catching up with all the theory of Compilers, so I have started reading the first 4 chapters of the book Compilers Principles, Techniques, and Tools

I also have a lot to read from the book Principles of Object Oriented Modeling and simulation with modelica 2.1

One of my supervisors had a video conference with me today to explain me a bit more about the whole project open modelica and to clarify me a bit more about the PARCER that I will build for this project.

The idea is to improve the speed and the error detection in open modelica by replacing the current parcer ANTLR with a integrated parcer built in Modelica language.

Next meeting will be next week or better to say "next year" and I hope to be done with the reading.

My idea is to start the second week of January to design the structure of the parcer and learn the tool I will use to write the compiler parcer.

Master thesis topic selected

Today 7 of Dec 2010 I had a very good meeting with the professor Peter Fritzson, who is working for IDA and is part of PELAB. He propose me to work with him on the thesis "A MetaModelica Parser Generator for Modelica grammar". Starting immediately with reading and preparation for the building of this parser. Hopefully I will finish by the beginning of june. This thesis have an important research component that will increase my skills in research and will open doors for future PhD applications.

Blog about the master thesis


I want to start recording all the events for my master thesis at Linköping University in Sweden. Currently I am searching for an interesting topic that suits my background and that improve my application towards the acceptance for a PhD position in Sweden or abroad.
