Functional Programming and Parallel Graph Rewriting
by Rinus Plasmeijer, Marko van Eekelen
Publisher: Addison-Wesley 1993
Number of pages: 592
This is an introduction to the techniques of functional programming, the associated computational models and the implementation of functional programming languages on both sequential and parallel machines. The book presents the features of functional programming languages, using Miranda as an example language. It focuses on an alternative computational model - Graph Rewriting Systems.

Python is not a functional programming language, but it is a multi-paradigm language that makes functional programming easy to perform. This book examines the functional aspects of the language and points out which options work well and which do not.
