Jun 18, Karl rated it really liked it Shelves: Daouda Traore rated it really liked it Nov 30, As in the first edition, there is an emphasis on the fundamental techniques for reasoning about functional programs, and for deriving them systematically from their specifications.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Shreedhar Kotekar rated it really liked it May 05, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

There are other authors named Richard Bird: The point this book makes is that progressing throug For me, this was a great book for learning Haskell. This all said, this is a great book on functional programming and Haskell.
Bird and Wadler, Introduction to Functional Programming is a classic. They have | Hacker News
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. 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.
There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract data After the success of the first edition, Introduction to Functional Programming proggamming 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
I have started reading the first book as a PDF and can see his point. In I met Philip Wadler, one of the authors, on the Joy of Coding conference where he kindly signed my copy of this book.
It uses a Functional Language that looks Like Miranda. Michael rated it it was amazing Mar 17, There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract datatypes in a functional setting, and programming in a monadic style.
Introduction to Functional Programming
Nowadays probably Haskell would be used. 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.
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. While set up as an introductory wader to languages of the Haskell family, the book actually has a fair share of theory which modern tutorials of Haskell lack.
If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. I ihtroduction recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory. John Liao rated it liked it Jun 07, Andreas Meingast rated it really liked it Apr 14, Return to Book Page.
On the other hand the implications of Monadic computations are far-reaching. I think I should have introduvtion it better in 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 second edition uses the popular language Haskell to express functional programs. I probably should read it again but If I recall well Monads and Lenses were not explicitly explained in book or course.
