MGS 2007: Advanced Functional Programming
Lecture Note Index
This page contains links to all electronic material used during the
lectures, in particular electronic slides and any major pieces of code.
The slides are all in PDF, and there are three versions available for
each lecture. The basic version is intended for on-screen viewing only,
whereas the 4 up and 9 up versions are mainly intended for printing,
putting 4 and 9 slides respectively on each page. (The format of any slides
for guest lectures, however, could be different.)
Monads and Arrows are concepts with roots in Category Theory that have
found important applications as aids for structuring functional
programs and libraries. The Advanced Functional Programming stream
is going to introduce and explore these concepts and their
relationships, with an emphasis on practical applications like modular
interpreters and embedded domain-specific languages.
