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?"

This page collects resources for using Haskell to do mathematics:

- Mathematics textbooks using Haskell
- The category of math libraries on the Hackage library database.
- 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 mathematics
- Mathematical prelude discussion: Initiatives to develop a mathematically sound algebraic class hierarchy for Haskell.
- Z4 - a Ro/Haskell page with a small (not complete) implementation of Z4, as part of the Project "Boosting your Maths. Faculty with Haskell" . See paragraph # 3, on page Z4
