Objectives and Content
A functional program consists of definitions of functions and its effect is determined by the input-output behaviour of these functions. Functional programming is the central example of the declarative paradigm, where program, in addition to its operational interpretation, has also a dual one: as a formula with static meaning independent from the transitions between program states. Execution of a program corresponds then to this declarative interpretation and this facilitates development and maintenance of correct software. The course introduces basic concepts from the functional paradigm through programming in a functional language (e.g., Haskell).
After the course, the students shall know how to program with functions, understand and use recursion, algebraic data types (such as lists and trees), higher order functions and polymorphic functions.
