Abstract syntax tree

Abstract
syntax
tree
is an acrostic for ast.

Explanation

Abstract syntax tree: In computer science, an abstract syntax tree, or just syntax tree, is a tree representation of the abstract syntactic structure of source code written in a programming language. Each node of the tree denotes a construct occurring in the source code. The syntax is "abstract" in not representing every detail appearing in the real syntax. For instance, grouping parentheses are implicit in the tree structure, and a syntactic construct like an if-condition-then expression may be denoted by means of a single node with three branches.
