Product description


"This book is important because it presents data structures from the point of view of functional languages...a handy reference for professional functional programmers...Most of the programs can easily be adapted to other functional languages. Even C and Java programmers should find implementing these data structures a relatively straightforward process...Programs are physically well structured and readable, and are displayed in boxes. Okasaki has produced a valuable book about functional programming, exploring a wide range of data structures...a significant contribution to the computer science literature." Computing Reviews

Book Description

Most books on data structures assume an imperative language. However, their data structures do not translate well to functional languages. This book describes data structures and data structure design techniques from the point of view of functional languages. It is a reference for functional programmers and a text for self-study.
