Haskell is growing in popularity among mathematicians. As one blogger put it:

- "after my involving myself in the subject, one thing that stands out is the relatively low distance between thought expressed in my ordinary day-to-day mathematical discourse, and thought expressed in Haskell code."

and

- "How can Haskell not be the programming language that all mathematicians should learn?"

To paraphrase Hilbert ("Physics is too complicated for Physicists"), the relative obscurity of Haskell (a language with a strict notion of functions, higher-order-functions, and types) amongst mathematicians may be that:

- "Haskell is too mathematical for many mathematicians."

This page collects resources for using Haskell to do mathematics:

- Mathematics textbooks using Haskell
- A growing collection of Haskell math libraries.
- There has been a long tradition of mechanised reasoning in and about Haskell.
- Articles on computational and category theoretic branches of mathematics, and their role as a foundation for programming and Haskell itself.
- Articles about Haskell and mathetmatics
- A mathematical class hierarchy for * Haskell. An initiative to develop a mathematically sound algebraic class hierarchy for Haskell.
