There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The point this book makes is that progressing through a well-formulated pedagogy one can absorb Monads as easily as one can absorb Sets. Richard Simpson Bird is a computer scientist. Read the first edition, since subsequent editions are rewritten more in the “programming language overview” style. It was released before the Haskell 98 report was finished, and we are already using the Haskell report, while a new one is in the making.
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.
Adolfo rated it liked it Jun 04, Andreas Meingast rated it really liked it Apr 14, Thanks for telling us about the problem. What was great about the treatment was that each new concept was introduced with little fanfare.

Eduardo rated it really liked it Jul 13, The focus is mainly on the theoretical side, being many of the exercises proofs. Lots of rigorous proofs and great discussion of things like strictness and bottom values. Look up some of his presentations on YouTube I have started reading the first book as a PDF and can see his point. In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big funnctional conceptually.
Jobaer Chowdhury rated it it was amazing Apr 15, Michael rated it it was amazing Mar 17, Nowadays probably Haskell would be used. Refresh and try again. It presents a simple model of evaluation, discusses efficiency e. I can understand that as well. Mace Ousley rated it it was amazing Nov 04, Of course, more recent topics like idioms applicative functors aren’t touched upon. 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.
Books by Richard S. Pepe rated it it was amazing Nov 07, Related to this I have seen interviews with Eric Meijer where he talked about preferring the first edition of this book because is was more conceptual and not Haskell specific.
Hardcoverpages. This all said, this is a great book on functional programming and Haskell.
Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Bird
Daouda Traore rated it really liked it Nov 30, Sep 10, Chiqing Zhang rated it it was amazing. Inyroduction book wxdler self-contained, assuming no prior knowledge of programming and is suitable as an introductory undergraduate text for first- or second-year students.
Gaurav Kaul rated it really liked it Sep 23, Jan 15, Peteris Erins rated it liked it Shelves: Trivia About Introduction to F Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. 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.

Language-agnostic to the extent that most code can be easily translated to most modern functional programming languages. And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that runs Functiohal Ilumnios. I think I should have read it better in Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
Published by Prentice Hall first published January 1st Daniel rated it really liked it Feb 01, Comprehensive, readable, functionap demanding. For more practical matters, I’d recommend Haskell Programming: John Liao rated it liked it Jun 07, Still a good book.
Stephen Bennett rated it liked it Jan 17, Same guy who also brought you generics with type erasure in Java. All in all, it is an excellent book with which to hone theory, and for that I can’t recommend it enough. Tom rated it really liked it Aug 04, Return to Book Page.
