**Implementing Functional Languages: a tutorial**

by Simon Peyton Jones, David Lester

**Publisher**: Prentice Hall 1992**ISBN/ASIN**: B001UHUR8W**Number of pages**: 296

**Description**:

This book gives a practical approach to understanding implementations of non-strict functional languages using lazy graph reduction. The book is intended to be a source of practical labwork material, to help make functional-language implementations 'come alive', by helping the reader to develop, modify and experiment with some non-trivial compilers.

**Proofs and Types**

by

**J. Girard, Y. Lafont, P. Taylor**-

**Cambridge University Press**

This little book comes from a short graduate course on typed lambda-calculus given at the Universite Paris. It is not intended to be encyclopedic and the selection of topics was really quite haphazard. Some very basic knowledge of logic is needed.
