Same guy who also brought you generics with type erasure in Java. The second edition uses the popular language Haskell to express functional programs. Hardcoverprogramminng. 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.
Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Bird
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. For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. There are other authors named Richard Bird: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that run [1st Edition]Was a freshman year textbook used fir introducing Functional Programming at the Computer Science department at the University of Twente in The four instead of five stars is because, unfor I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory.
Lists with This Book. On the other hand the implications of Monadic computations are far-reaching. Eduardo rated it really liked it Jul 13, Jobaer Chowdhury rated it it was amazing Apr 15, The book can be dense at parts, introductioj it is packed with information.
Refresh and try again.
introuction Richard Simpson Bird is a computer scientist. Published by Prentice Hall first published January 1st Be the first to ask a question about Introduction to Functional Programming. I can understand that as well.
There are complete new case studies, and many new exercises. Bar Shirtcliff rated it really liked it Feb 14, The point this book makes is that progressing throug For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell.
It is also a book, meaning some things are outdated. Look up some of his prograamming on YouTube Dmitry Paramonov rated it it was amazing Aug 03, Sep 09, Hans rated it really liked it. The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it functionwl to be, and some of the exercises can’t be tackled with only the introduction to the topic given by the author.

Bird and Wadler 1st ed. In the popular literature about Haskell a lot of digital ink is spilled over Monads, but really they’re no big deal conceptually. One of the most inspiring CS book I’ve ever read. Michael rated it it introdjction amazing Mar 17, 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.
Lots of rigorous proofs and great discussion of things like strictness and bottom values.
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. That said, SICP is a comprehensive overview of the essence of computer science narrated using Scheme and functional programming, while Bird and Wadler is a tutorial in functional abstractions and type-directed programming through Miranda, a precursor to Haskell. The focus is mainly proyramming the theoretical side, intgoduction many of the exercises proofs.
