120 credits with a second course in computer programming. 15 credits in mathematics, including basic algebra. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
- Responsible department: Department of Information Technology
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- list and define the fundamental concepts of functional programming.
- manually execute a given (simple) functional program.
- manually infer the type of a given (simple) functional program.
- implement (simple) algorithms and data structures as functional programs.
- design (large) functional programs that are modular and have reusable components.
- explain on a simple problem how functional programming differs from imperative and object-oriented programming.
Fundamental concepts: functions, relations, recursion, tail-recursion, type systems, polymorphism, datatypes, recursive datatypes, introduction to higher-order functions, data abstraction.
Programming in a functional programming language, such as Haskell.
Similarities and differences with imperative and object-oriented programming.
Laboratory work, if required complemented by lectures.
Assignments. Voluntary written exam for higher grades.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
The course cannot be counted in a higher education qualification together with the course Programkonstruktion (1IT020, 1IT021, 1DL200, 1DL201).
Applies from: Autumn 2021
