Introduction to Functional Programming

Want to Read saving…. There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract data After the success of the first edition, Introduction to Functional Programming using Haskell has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide a complete grounding in the principles and techniques of programming with functions.

It is also a book, meaning some things are outdated. The book is self-contained, assuming no prior knowledge of programming and is suitable as an introductory undergraduate text for first- or second-year students. In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is birv over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually. The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it claims to be, and some of the exercises can’t be tackled with only the introduction to the topic given by the author.


However, the use of explicit partial computations and lazy evaluation makes it harder to follow examples, and complicates the program cost model and proofs by structural induction.
