The main idea behind the book is to encourage readers to approach mathematical domains from a functional programming perspective: to identify the main functions and types involved and, when necessary, to introduce new abstractions; to give calculational proofs; to pay attention to the syntax of the mathematical expressions; and, finally, to organize the resulting functions and types in domain-specific languages.
The book is recommended for developers who are learning mathematics and would like to use Haskell to make sense of definitions and theorems. It is also a book for the mathematically interested who wants to explore functional programming and domain-specific languages. The book helps put into perspective the domains of Mathematics and Functional Programming and shows how Computer Science and Mathematics are usefully taught together.
