Richard Bird is famed for the clarity and rigour of his writing. His new textbook, which introduces functional programming to students, emphasises fundamental techniques for reasoning mathematically about functional programs. By studying the underlying equational laws, the book enables students to apply calculational reasoning to their programs, both to understand their properties and to make them more efficient. The book has been designed to fit a first- or second-year undergraduate course and is a thorough overhaul and replacement of his earlier textbooks. It features case studies in Sudoku and pretty-printing, and over 100 carefully selected exercises with solutions. This engaging text will be welcomed by students and teachers alike.

This book is devoted to five main principles of algorithm design: divide and conquer, greedy algorithms, thinning, dynamic programming, and exhaustive search. These principles are presented using Haskell, a purely functional language, leading to simpler explanations and shorter programs than would be obtained with imperative languages. Carefully selected examples, both new and standard, reveal the commonalities and highlight the differences between algorithms. The algorithm developments use equational reasoning where applicable, clarifying the applicability conditions and correctness arguments. Every chapter concludes with exercises (nearly 300 in total), each with complete answers, allowing the reader to consolidate their understanding and apply the techniques to a range of problems. The book serves students (both undergraduate and postgraduate), researchers, teachers, and professionals who want to know more about what goes into a good algorithm and how such algorithms can be expressed in purely functional terms.

Learn to use the APIs and frameworks for parallel and concurrent applications in Haskell. This book will show you how to exploit multicore processors with the help of parallelism in order to increase the performance of your applications. Practical Concurrent Haskell teaches you how concurrency enables you to write programs using threads for multiple interactions. After accomplishing this, you will be ready to make your move into application development and portability with applications in cloud computing and big data. You'll use MapReduce and other, similar big data tools as part of your Haskell big data applications development. What You'll Learn Program with Haskell Harness concurrency to Haskell Apply Haskell to big data and cloud computing applications Use Haskell concurrency design patterns in big data Accomplish iterative data processing on big data using Haskell Use MapReduce and work with Haskell on large clusters Who This Book Is For Those with at least some prior experience with Haskell and some prior experience with big data in another programming language such as Java, C#, Python, or C++.

This Festschrift is published in honor of Kim Guldstrand Larsen, one of the earliest precursors of computer science in Denmark, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. During the last three decades, Kim Guldstrand Larsen has given major contributions across a remarkably wide range of topics, including real-time, concurrent, and probabilistic models of computation, logic in computer science, and model checking. Since 1995, he has been one of the prime movers behind the model checking tool for real-time systems UPPAAL, for which he was a co-recipient of the CAV Award in 2013. The Festschrift contains 32 papers that feature the broad range of Kim Guldstrand Larsen's research topics, such as formal languages and automata theory; logic; verification, model checking and testing; algorithmic game theory and mechanism design; semantics and reasoning; real-time and distributed systems; and modeling and simulation.

Summary Get Programming with Haskell introduces you to the Haskell language without drowning you in academic jargon and heavy functional programming theory. By working through 43 easy-to-follow lessons, you''ll learn Haskell the best possible way--by doing Haskell! Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications. About the Technology Programming languages often differ only around the edges--a few keywords, libraries, or platform choices. Haskell gives you an entirely new point of view. To the software pioneer Alan Kay, a change in perspective can be worth 80 IQ points and Haskellers agree on the dramatic bene ts of thinking the Haskell way--thinking functionally, with type safety, mathematical certainty, and more. In this hands-on book, that''s exactly what you''ll learn to do. About the Book Get Programming with Haskell leads you through short lessons, examples, and exercises designed to make Haskell your own. It has crystal-clear illustrations and guided practice. You will write and test dozens of interesting programs and dive into custom Haskell modules. You will gain a new perspective on programming plus the practical ability to use Haskell in the everyday world. (The 80 IQ points: not guaranteed.)

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Symposium on Unifying Theories of Programming, UTP 2016, held in Reykjavik, Iceland, in June 2016, in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Integrated Formal Methods, iFM 2016. The 8 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 10 submissions. They deal with the fundamental problem of combination of formal notations and theories of programming that define in various different ways many common notions, such as abstraction refinement, choice, termination, feasibility, locality, concurrency, and communication. They also show that despite many differences, such theories may be unified in a way that greatly facilitates their study and comparison.

Explore functional programming and discover new ways of thinking about code. You know you need to master functional programming, but learning one functional language is only the start. In this book, through articles drawn from PragPub magazine and articles written specifically for this book, you'll explore functional thinking and functional style and idioms across languages. Led by expert guides, you'll discover the distinct strengths and approaches of Clojure, Elixir, Haskell, Scala, and Swift and learn which best suits your needs. Contributing authors: Rich Hickey, Stuart Halloway, Aaron Bedra, Michael Bevilacqua-Linn, Venkat Subramaniam, Paul Callaghan, Jose Valim, Dave Thomas, Natasha Murashev, Tony Hillerson, Josh Chisholm, and Bruce Tate. Functional programming is on the rise because it lets you write simpler, cleaner code, and its emphasis on immutability makes it ideal for maximizing the benefits of multiple cores and distributed solutions. So far nobody's invented the perfect functional language - each has its unique strengths. In Functional Programming: A PragPub Anthology, you'll investigate the philosophies, tools, and idioms of five different functional programming languages. See how Swift, the development language for iOS, encourages you to build highly scalable apps using functional techniques like map and reduce. Discover how Scala allows you to transition gently but deeply into functional programming without losing the benefits of the JVM, while with Lisp-based Clojure, you can plunge fully into the functional style. Learn about advanced functional concepts in Haskell, a pure functional language making powerful use of the type system with type inference and type classes. And see how functional programming is becoming more elegant and friendly with Elixir, a new functional language built on the powerful Erlang base.The industry has been embracing functional programming more and more, driven by the need for concurrency and parallelism. This collection of articles will lead you to mastering the functional approach to problem solving. So put on your explorer's hat and prepare to be surprised. The goal of exploration is always discovery. What You Need: Familiarity with one or more programming languages.
