IB015/10: each odd Monday 10:00–11:50 B130,*M. Klučár* **Prerequisites**- There are no special prerequisities apart from the basic math skills (on the secondary-school level), and certain aptitude for abstract reasoning.
**Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
**Fields of study the course is directly associated with**- there are 17 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
**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.
**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.

**Teaching methods**- The course is organized as a series of lectures, plus a set of exercises, where the students get practice with solving various problems.
**Assessment methods**- The evaluation consists of one obligatory midterm written test (32%) and a final written exam (68%). The final grade can be further improved by additional "bonus points" which can be acquired for solving selected exercises.
**Language of instruction**- Czech
