- Toposes, Triples and Theories
- Michael Barr and Charles Wells. The revised version of their formerly Springer Verlag published book is online for free download. Note that they use the name triple instead of monad.
- Categories and Computer Science

- Here, Category Theory is developed in a straightforward way, and is enriched with many examples from computer science.
- Where do I begin? A problem solving approach to teaching functional programming
- Simon Thompson, First International Conference on Declarative Programming Languages in Education
- Many students take easily to functional programming whilst others experience difficulties of one sort or another. The work reported here is the result of attempts to advise students on how to use problem solving ideas to help them design as develop programs.
