Co-ordinator: Martin Escardo

Reviewer: Eric Finster

The Module Description is a strict subset of this Syllabus Page.

### Outline

This module exposes students to state of the art functional programming languages and their mathematical foundations in the lambda calculus and type theory. Students can expect to develop advanced functional programming skills and awareness of experimental programming languages.

### Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this module, the student should be able to:

- Be able to formally prove the correctness of complex programs
- Understand and program with advanced type systems (e.g. dependent or linear)
- Be aware of and apply advanced idioms in functional programming
- Form connections with logic and the foundations of mathematics
- Demonstrate an awareness of the current literature in this area
