Programming from Specifications
by Carroll Morgan
Publisher: Prentice-Hall 1998
Number of pages: 260
Programming from Specifications presents a rigorous treatment of most elementary program-development constructs, including iteration, recursion, procedures, parameters, modules and data refinement. The second edition retains the simple approach of the original: the integration of specification, development and coding, and the use of ordinary (classical) logic. Additions include more material on data refinement, a complete chapter on recursively defined types, and two further extended case studies.

Read this book if you need a much deeper understanding of programming: the need to carefully structure a program to avoid being overwhelmed by its complexity, or the need to insure reliability beyond what can he achieved by debugging.

This book is intended for a second course in computer science, one emphasizing principles wherever it seems possible. It is not limited to programming, it attempts to use various programming models to explicate principles of computational systems.

Learn to program a computer without the jargon and complexity of many programming books. This book engages through media and then introduces the concepts of structured programming. You will learn to program as you make animations and games.
by Lawrence C Paulson - University of Cambridge
This text teaches programming and presents some fundamental principles of computer science, especially algorithm design. The programming in this course is based on the language ML and mostly concerns the functional programming style.
