The purpose of this book is to convince people who write software that the technology of program verification is mature enough today that it makes sense to use it in a support role in many kinds of research projects in computer science.

This book describes data structures from the point of view of functional languages. The author includes both classical data structures, such as red-black trees, and a host of new data structures developed exclusively for functional languages.
