[PDF/EPUB] The Haskell Road to Logic Maths and Programming Author Kees Doets – Book, eBook or Kindle ePUB free

CHARACTERS The Haskell Road to Logic Maths and Programming

The purpose of this book is to teach logic and mathematical reasoning in practice and to connect logical reasoning with computer programming in Haskell Haskell emerged in the last decade as a standard for lazy functional programming a programming style where arguments are evaluated only when the value is actually needed Haskell is a marvellous demonstration tool for logic and maths because its functiona. Without a doubt the math contents of this book were over my head I originally picked The Haskell Road for its relation to functional programming than to anything else For this reason the chapters on induction recursion and corecursion were enlightening and understandable than any other section For a kid with no formal mathematical training though the proofs in this book mostly those in the later chapters were often beyond my reachIf an exercise like the following sounds like fun you ll enjoy this bookShow that the relation on N is the transitive closure of the relation R n n 1 n in NIn many chapters the Haskell exercises are few and far between but were for me a lot of funGive a corecursive program for producing the Thue Morse seuence as a stream

The Haskell Road to Logic Maths and Programming

To know about mathematical reasoning or programming is explained as we go along After proper digestion of the material in this book the reader will be able to write interesting programs reason about their correctness and document them in a clear fashion The reader will also have learned how to set up mathematical proofs in a structured way and how to read and digest mathematical proofs written by others. freakin awesome

Kees Doets Õ 1 REVIEW

L character allows implementations to remain very close to the concepts that get implemented while the laziness permits smooth handling of infinite data structuresThis book does not assume the reader to have previous experience with either programming or construction of formal proofs but acuaintance with mathematical notation at the level of secondary school mathematics is presumed Everything one needs. An exceptional book for learning both logic and Haskell

    freakin' awesome

    The most hard core programming language ever Haskell presented in a really different and thought provoking way For those interested in this topics functional languages logics and mathematical foundations i think it's must have

    Didn't finish yet Need to pick it up again at a later point in time
