Overview

This book is unique in showcasing real non-trivial applications of functional programming using the Haskell language. It presents state-of- the-art work from the flare project and will be an invaluable resource for advanced study, research and implementation.; The applications covered in the book range from workforce management and graphical design to computational fluid dynamics. The section on parallelism will be of particular significance as the relevance of functional programming to this domain begins to emerge as one of its most promising future directions. Any professional wishing to develop an application using Haskell will find this book a priceless reference and starting point.; "Applications of functional programming" should be on the shelf of all computer scientists with an interest in the development of declarative programming, and in particular, the implementation of Haskell. It will be accessible for those with only a foundational knowledge of functional programming as well as those at the cutting edge of the paradigm.; This book is intended for advanced undergraduates and graduates studying functional programming, researchers in applied functional programming and, in particular, those using the Haskell programming language.
