Overview

An Introduction to Functional Programming Through Lambda Calculus by Greg Michaelson

Functional programming is rooted in lambda calculus, which constitutes the world's smallest programming language. This well-respected text offers an accessible introduction to functional programming concepts and techniques for students of mathematics and computer science. The treatment is as nontechnical as possible, and it assumes no prior knowledge of mathematics or functional programming. Cogent examples illuminate the central ideas, and numerous exercises appear throughout the text, offering reinforcement of key concepts. All problems feature complete solutions.

The lambda expressions are too small to read on my Nook. Comparisons to languages such as Pascal are lost on me.
