Abstract: In the past, specification of languages and data structures has traditionally been formally achieved using mathematical notations. This is very precise and unambiguous, however it does not map easily to modern programming languages and many engineers are put off by mathematical notation. Recent developments in graphical specification of structures, drawing from Object-Oriented programming languages, has lead to the development of Class Diagrams as a well-used means to define data structures. We show in this paper that there are strong parallels between the two techniques, but that also there are some surprising differences!
