Algorithms -- A Functional Programming Approach

Addison-Wesley Publishers Ltd. (ISBN: 0-201-59604-0).

This book challenges more traditional methods of teaching algorithms by using a functional programming context, with Haskell as the implementation language. This leads to smaller, clearer and more elegant programs which enable the programmer to understand the algorithm itself more quickly and to use that understanding to explore alternative solutions. Placing the emphasis on program development rather than the mathematical properties of algorithms, the book uses a succession of practical programming examples to develop in the reader problem-solving skills which can be easily transferred to other language paradigms.

A very compact presentation with a lot of topics and illustrative examples. Companion website:
