Prerequisites
! I015 Intro to Func.Programming
There are no special prerequisities apart from the basic math skills (on the secondary-school level), and certain aptitude for abstract reasoning.

Course objectives
The students get acquainted with functional programming paradigm. Haskell enforces purely functional programming style without side effects, which brings on programming habits, useful also in imperative languages. Apart from lectures the course consists of non-obligatory exercises, where the students can practise solving various problems.
Syllabus
  • Basic notions: term, value, evaluation step.
  • Lambda abstraction.
  • Higher-order functions, partial application, currying.
  • Simple types: ground types and type constructors, product types.
  • Polymorfic types, typing.
  • User defined type constructors, sum types, recursive types; definitions by patterns.
  • List constructors, list enumeration and list comprehension.
  • Evaluation order, strict vs. lazy reduction.
  • Infinite data structures.
  • Recursive functions, operations on lists and trees, time complexity.
