Simon Peyton Jones: "Haskell 98 language and libraries: the Revised Report", Cambridge University Press, 2003, Hardback, 272 pages, ISBN 0521826144, £45.00

Book Description
Haskell is the world's leading lazy functional programming language, widely used for teaching, research, and applications. The language continues to develop rapidly, but in 1998 the community decided to capture a stable snapshot of the language: Haskell 98. All Haskell compilers support Haskell 98, so practitioners and educators alike have a stable base for their work. This book constitutes the agreed definition of the Haskell 98, both the language itself and its supporting libraries. It has been considerably revised and refined since the original definition, and appears in print for the first time. It should be a standard reference work for anyone involved in research, teaching, or application of Haskell.The entire language definition is also available online: Language and library specification.

Book Description
This book teaches functional programming as a way of thinking and problem solving, using Haskell, the most popular purely functional language. Rather than using the conventional mathematical examples commonly found in other programming language textbooks, the author draws examples from multimedia applications, including graphics, animation, and computer music, thus rewarding the reader with working programs for inherently more interesting applications. Aimed at both beginning and advanced programmers, this tutorial begins with a gentle introduction to functional programming and moves rapidly on to more advanced topics. An underlying theme is the design and implementation of domain specific languages, using three examples: FAL (a Functional Animation Language), IRL (an Imperative Robot Language), and MDL (a Music Description Language). Details about programming in Haskell are presented in boxes throughout the text so they can be easily referred to and found quickly.The book's website contains source files for all programs in the text, as well as the graphics libraries to run them under Windows and Linux platforms. It also contains PowerPoint slides useful for teaching a course using the textbook.

AddisonWesley, 235 pages, paperback, 1999. ISBN 0201596040

Book Description
The authors challenge more traditional methods of teaching algorithms by using a functional programming context, with Haskell as an implementation language. This leads to smaller, clearer and more elegant programs which enable the programmer to understand the algorithm more quickly and to use that understanding to explore alternative solutions.
Key features: Most chapters are selfcontained and can be taught independently from each other.
 All programs are in Haskell'98 and provided on a WWW site.
 End of chapter exercises throughout.
 Comprehensive index and bibliographical notes.
Synopsis
The book is organised as a classic algorithms book according to topics such as Abstract Data Types, sorting and searching. It uses a succession of practical programming examples to develop in the reader problemsolving skills which can be easily transferred to other language paradigms. It also introduces the idea of capturing algorithmic design strategies (e.g. DivideandConquer, Dynamic Programming) through higherorder functions.
Target audience
The book is intended for computer science students taking algorithms and/or (basic or advanced) functional programming courses.  Jeremy Gibbons and Oege de Moor (eds.): The Fun of Programming,Palgrave, 2002, 288 pages. ISBN 0333992857.

This book gives a practical approach to understanding the implementations of nonstrict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. The emphasis of the book is on building working prototypes of several functional language implementations (template instantiation, GMachine, TIM, parallel GMachine. In each case the authors provide a complete working prototype of a particular implementation, and then lead the reader through a sequence of improvements which expand its scope. This enables readers to develop, modify and experiment with their own implementations and for use as a source of practical laboratory work material.

Preface: Constructive Type theory has been a topic of research interest to computer scientists, mathematicians, logicians and philosophers for a number of years. For computer scientists it provides a framework which brings together logic and programming languages in a most elegant and fertile way: program development and verification can proceed within a single system. Viewed in a different way, type theory is a functional programming language with some novel features, such as the totality of all its functions, its expressive type system allowing functions whose result type depends upon the value of its input, and sophisticated modules and abstract types whose interfaces can contain logical assertions as well as signature information. A third point of view emphasizes that programs (or functions) can be extracted from proofs in the logic.

From the cover:
Most books on data structures assume an imperative language like C or C++. However, data structures for these languages do not always translate well to functional languages such as Standard ML, Haskell, or Scheme. This book describes data structures and data structure design techniques from the point of view of functional languages. It includes code for a wide assortment both of classical data structures and of data structures developed exclusively for functional languages.This handy reference for professional programmers working with functional languages can also be used as a tutorial or for selfstudy.

 Ryan Lemmer: Haskell Design Patterns, Paperback: 166 pages, Packt, November 2015, English, ISBN10: 178398872X, ISBN13: 9781783988723

Book Description
Design patterns and idioms can widen our perspective by showing us where to look, what to look at, and ultimately how to see what we are looking at. At their best, patterns are a shorthand method of communicating better ways to code (writing less, more maintainable, and more efficient code).This book starts with Haskell 98 and through the lens of patterns and idioms investigates the key advances and programming styles that together make "modern Haskell". Your journey begins with the three pillars of Haskell. Then you'll experience the problem with Lazy I/O, together with a solution. You'll also trace the hierarchy formed by Functor, Applicative, Arrow, and Monad. Next you'll explore how Fold and Map are generalized by Foldable and Traversable, which in turn is unified in a broader context by functional Lenses. You'll delve more deeply into the Type system, which will prepare you for an overview of Generic programming. In conclusion you go to the edge of Haskell by investigating the Kind system and how this relates to Dependentlytyped programming.
 James Church: Learning Haskell Data Analysis, Paperback: 198 pages, Packt, May 2015, English, ISBN10: 1784394707, ISBN13: 9781784394707

Book Description
This book provides you with the skills to handle large amounts of data, even if that data is in a less than perfect state. Each chapter in the book helps to build a small library of code that will be used to solve a problem for that chapter.The book starts with creating databases out of existing datasets, cleaning that data, and interacting with databases within Haskell in order to produce charts for publications. It then moves towards more theoretical concepts that are fundamental to introductory data analysis, but in a context of a realworld problem with realworld data. As you progress in the book, you will be relying on code from previous chapters in order to help create new solutions quickly. By the end of the book, you will be able to manipulate, find, and analyze large and small sets of data using your own Haskell libraries.

Types and Programming Languages by Benjamin C. Pierce. 645 pages, The MIT Press, (February 1, 2002), English. ISBN 0262162091
 From the cover:
A type system is a syntactic method for automatically checking the absence of certain erroneous behaviors by classifying program phrases according to the kinds of values they compute. The study of type systemsand of programming languages from a typetheoretic perspectivehas important applications in software engineering, language design, highperformance compilers, and security. This text provides a comprehensive introduction both to type systems in computer science and to the basic theory of programming languages. The approach is pragmatic and operational; each new concept is motivated by programming examples and the more theoretical sections are driven by the needs of implementations. Each chapter is accompanied by numerous exercises and solutions, as well as a running implementation, available via the Web. Dependencies between chapters are explicitly identified, allowing readers to choose a variety of paths through the material. The core topics include the untyped lambdacalculus, simple type systems, type reconstruction, universal and existential polymorphism, subtyping, bounded quantification, recursive types, kinds, and type operators. Extended case studies develop a variety of approaches to modeling the features of objectoriented languages.  Advanced Topics in Types and Programming Languages by Benjamin C. Pierce (Editor), Hardcover: 608 pages, The MIT Press (December 23, 2004), Language: English, ISBN 0262162288.

From the cover:
The study of type systems for programming languages now touches many areas of computer science, from language design and implementation to software engineering, network security, databases, and analysis of concurrent and distributed systems. This book offers accessible introductions to key ideas in the field, with contributions by experts on each topic. The topics covered include precise type analyses, which extend simple type systems to give them a better grip on the run time behavior of systems; type systems for lowlevel languages; applications of types to reasoning about computer programs; type theory as a framework for the design of sophisticated module systems; and advanced techniques in MLstyle type inference. Advanced Topics in Types and Programming Languages builds on Benjamin Pierce's Types and Programming Languages (MIT Press, 2002); most of the chapters should be accessible to readers familiar with basic notations and techniques of operational semantics and type systems  the material covered in the first half of the earlier book. Advanced Topics in Types and Programming Languages can be used in the classroom and as a resource for professionals. Most chapters include exercises, ranging in difficulty from quick comprehension checks to challenging extensions, many with solutions.  Programming Languages: Theory and Practice by Robert Harper.

Monadic Programming
 Practical monadic interpretation by Dan Popa , Language: Romanian

Foreword of the book (en):
I am delighted to introduce this book on the use of monads in Haskell as a way of structuring interpreters. In the early days, Haskell's most distinctive feature was lazy evaluation. Laziness forced us to take a pure approach to input/output, which meant that Haskell's I/O was initially rather weak. This weakness ultimately proved a strength, however, because it led us to the discovery that monads were not just an abstract mathematical concept, but were immediately applicable as a powerful program structuring mechanism.
Monadic programming is not just to do with input/output: it is much more powerful. That is why I am pleased to see this book, which describes in some detail how to write a language interpreter using a monadic approach.
In retrospect, the discovery of monads as a practical programming pattern is one of Haskell's most substantial contributions to the world of programming  and it is one that you will share if you work through this book.
I am also very happy to see Haskell growing in popularity among our brothers and sisters in Eastern Europe, and in Romania in particular. Enjoy!

Videos
This video is specifically aimed at anybody who knows the essentials of the Haskell programming language and who is interested in moving onto developing real programs that will make use of file I/O, commandline parsers and various thirdparty packages. This course will take you through the complete journey from writing your first Haskell program to getting familiarized with Haskell and all its functionalities.
This course builds on the foundations provided by the Fundamentals of Practical Haskell Programming course and helps to bridge the gap between introductory and advanced Haskell by teaching you how to manage and develop complex programs. We'll also dispel the myth that Haskell is only useful for toy programs.
This video course will take you through all the concepts of functional programming (FP) and Haskell language. First, we’ll address all the problems with FP and Haskell. Then we’ll help you distinguish the difference between FP and Haskell. We’ll then guide you through Haskell in depth. We’ll help you create your first Haskell program. You’ll then be given a brief insight into GHCi (Glasgow Haskell Compiler). Later we’ll explore the different values, expressions and programs in Haskell in depth.
This course will introduce the basic concepts of Haskell and move on to discuss how Haskell can be used to solve the issues by using the realworld data. The course will guide you through the installation procedure, after you have all the tools that you require in place, you will explore the basic concepts of Haskell including the functions, and the data structures. With a good hold on the basics of Haskell and data analysis, you will then be introduced to advanced concepts of data analysis such as Kernel Density Estimation, Hypothesis testing, Regression analysis, text analysis, clustering, Naïve Bayes Classification, and Principal Component Analysis.
In this course, you’ll discover different ways to structure interactions between the program and the outside world. We’ll look at some subtler aspects of the IO monad, such as lazy IO and unsafePerformIO. In addition to the IO monad, we’ll also check out two other structured forms of interaction: streaming libraries and functional reactive programming. Then we explore parallel, concurrent, and distributed programming. Thanks to purity, Haskell is especially wellsuited for the first two, and so there are a number of approaches to cover. As for distributed programming, we focus on the idea of splitting a large monolithic program into smaller microservices, asking whether doing so is a good idea. We’ll also consider a different way of interacting with other microservices, and explore an alternative to microservices.
In this video, you will be guided on how to find correlations in data, as well as multiple dependent variables. You will be given a theoretical overview of the types of regression and we’ll show you how to install the LAPACK and HMatrix libraries. By the end of the first part, you’ll be familiar with the application of Ngrams and TFIDF. Once you’ve learned how to analyze data, the next step is organizing that data with the help of machine learning algorithms. You will be briefed on the mathematics and statistical theorems such as Baye’s law and its application, as well as eigenvalues and eigenvectors using HMatrix. By the end of this course, you’ll have an understanding of data analysis, different ways to analyze data, and the various clustering algorithms available. You’ll also understand Haskell and will be ready to write code with it.
This video would begin with the fundamentals and building blocks of Haskell programming language with special emphasis on functional programming. It will be covering how Haskell variables, syntax work alongwith Haskell datatypes and functions. You will learn how to solve programming problems while creating an application with handson experience. You will then move on to learning writing expressions and highorder functions. At the end of the video, you will be able to build a complete application with Haskell alongwith learning the important functionalities.
Data analysis is part computer science and part statistics. An important part of data analysis is validating your assumptions with realworld data to see if there is a pattern, or a particular user behavior that you can validate. This video course will help you get up to speed with the basics of data analysis and approaches in the Haskell language. You'll learn about statistical computing, file formats (CSV and SQLite3), descriptive statistics, charts, and onto more advanced concepts like understanding the importance of normal distribution. Whilst mathematics is a big part of data analysis, we’ve tried to keep this course simple and approachable so that you can apply what you learn to the real world.

 Team "Referential Transparent Sea Keepers": Functional Ikamusume
book series, Japanese
 Book Description
Functional Ikamusume book series provides a forum for researchers, developers, and animewatchers to publish their latest work, articles, and “mousou (妄想)” on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming and Ikamusume. The book series covers the entire spectrum of work, from practice to theory, from frank introduction of functional programming to latest research work, from Ikamusume with some functional flavor to functional programming with some Ikamusume flavor. Let’s enjoy writing articles on functional programming in frank “geso” style degeso!!Past books are written entirely in Japanese, and books are planned to be sold in Japan, but we also accept articles in English. For more information on functional Ikamusume, see the links above (all in Japanese), or ask @xhl_kogitsune or "other members" on twitter, or xhlkogitsune on Skype. You don’t have to be worried about what is Functional Ikamusume —— she is just Ikamusume who loves functional programming, as you love it.
If you are interested in writing Functional Ikamusume articles, please contact xhlkogitsune on Skype or the authors on twitter. You can use Japanese or English for discussion. A text chat room is on Skype, and I’ll invite you to the chat room. While the chat is currently in Japanese, most participants can read/write English.
