Implementing Functional Languages: a tutorial
by Simon Peyton Jones, David Lester
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1992
Number of pages: 296
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.

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.

This is a book on the foundations of programming languages. The emphasis is on the concept of type, which organizes the computational universe in the same way that the concept of set may be seen as an organizing principle for mathematics.
