Haskell is growing in popularity among mathematicians. As one blogger put it:

"after my involving myself in the subject, one thing that stands out is the relatively low distance between thought expressed in my ordinary day-to-day mathematical discourse, and thought expressed in Haskell code."

and

"How can Haskell not be the programming language that all mathematicians should learn?"

To paraphrase Hilbert ("Physics is too complicated for Physicists"), the relative obscurity of Haskell (a language with a strict notion of functions, higher-order-functions, and types) amongst mathematicians may be that:

"Haskell is too mathematical for many mathematicians."

This page collects resources for using Haskell to do mathematics.

Contents

1 Textbooks

See Books and tutorials/Mathematics

2 Libraries

A growing collection of Haskell math libraries.

3 Theorem proving

There has been a long tradition of mechanised reasoning in and about Haskell.

4 Mathematics from a Haskell perspective

Articles on computational and category theoretic branches of mathematics, and their role as a foundation for programming and Haskell itself.

5 Tutorials and blogs on Haskell for mathematicians

There's an active commuity of (professional and amateur) mathematicians blogging about Haskell and mathetmatics.

6 Mathematical hierarchy

An initiative to develop a mathematically sound algebraic class hierarchy for Haskell. See Haskell and mathematics/Hierarchy
