From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  abstract syntax tree
      (AST) A data structure representing something which
     has been parsed, often used as a compiler or interpreter's
     internal representation of a program while it is being
     optimised and from which code generation is performed.  The
     range of all possible such structures is described by the
     abstract syntax.
