[Haskell-cafe] Examples of using Haskell for mathematics

In a couple weeks I will be giving a short (15-min.) talk to an audience of
mostly mathematicians, entitled "Executable Mathematics: A Whirlwind
Introduction to Haskell". The idea will be to give a flavor of Haskell, its
uniquenesses, and why it is a great language for playing around with
mathematics, by way of some well-chosen examples. There are definitely
plenty of such examples out there, and I've already found quite a few that I
might use, but I thought I would send an email to the cafe to ask whether
anyone has any code which you think particularly exemplifies some aspect of
why Haskell is a great language for mathematics. I'm looking to include a
wide range of examples, so any length (from a few to hundreds of lines of
code) and any level (from simple number theory to things only a few people
in the world understand) are fair game.
Thanks in advance! And yes, I will definitely make the slides available
after the talk. I don't know if I can promise a video, I kind of doubt the
sessions will be videotaped. I guess we'll see.
