## An Introduction to Functional ProgrammingThis is a thorough introduction to the fundamental concepts of functional programming.The book clearly expounds the construction of functional programming as a process of mathematical calculation, but restricts itself to the mathematics relevant to actual program construction. It covers simple and abstract datatypes, numbers, lists, examples, trees, and efficiency. It includes a simple, yet coherent treatment of the Haskell class; a calculus of time complexity; and new coverage of monadic input-output. |
