This book is an introduction to programming with the Standard ML pro-gramming language. It began life as a set of lecture notes forComputer Science 15– Principles of Programming, the second semester of the in-troductory sequence in the undergraduate computer science curriculum at Carnegie Mellon University.

Introduction to Standard ML These notes are an introduction to the Standard ML programming language. Topics covered includes: Interacting with ML, Polymorphism and Overloading, Exceptions, Basic expressions, values, and types, Identfiers, bindings, and.

This book is an introduction to a functional programming subset of Standard ML and provides a gentle introduction to the theory of programming and the use of by: The book is a good introduction to lambda calculus but the exercises are slightly weird.

I think that if the author selected a programming language for the exercises it would be much better. The book is much better than Barendregt's Introduction to Standard ML. book if you are simply looking to understand some of the concepts behind lambda calculus and not a full blown theoretical exposition of all that lambda calculus has to by: Introduction to Standard ML Wednesday, Septem Reading: Beginning of Stoughton Paulson’s ML for the Working Programmer, Chaps & Secs Introduction to Standard ML The ML Programming Language ML (Meta Language) was developed by Robin Milner in for specifying theorem provers.

Because computer programs are increasingly required to withstand rigorous analysis, it is all the more important that the language in Cited by: If this book is ever finished (the draft lacks seven chapters) I will buy it and read it again.

It doesn't only teaches how to program in Standard ML, it also teaches the fundamental mathematics behind functional programming and how to use them to write correct programs and to proof that they are correct besides some classical functional programming techniques.4/5(2).

They began as lecture notes for Fundamental Principles of Computer Science II, the second semester of the introductory sequence in the undergraduate computer science curriculum at Carnegie Mellon University.

This book, ML for the Working Programmer, is a pretty unique book. It strikes me as a very personal book. The author seems to be involved in theorem proving, which probably explains why a chapter is devoted to the subject and another chapter is devoted to implementing the lambda by: Information about Standard ML Introductory Material.

Peter Lee's guide to Standard ML at Carnegie includes general tips on using the SML/NJ and ML Works compilers, along with some CMU-specific information.

Standard ML of New Jersey, an interactive compiler and environment for Standard ML. The goal is to end up with a complete user guide to the system, inclduing the libraries, the tools and the extensions, as well as a tutorial on how to write “real” applications, centered around the use of the module system and the compilation manager.

Learning Standard ML COMP Contents fastest and easiest way to learn Standard ML is to buy Ullman’s book and work through chapters 2, 3, 5, and 6.

But many students choose not to buy Ullman—a move that saves money but costs the “Gentle Introduction to ML.”. In this author’s opinion, the Standard ML programming language provides the most carefully designed and constructed attempt so far to develop a language to promote the relative virtues embodied in well-designed applicative and imperative program-ming languages.

Standard ML The Standard ML programming language is defined formally. The Definition of Standard ML (Revised) by Robin Milner, Mads Tofte, Robert Harper, and David MacQueen (MIT Press, ) constitutes the official definition of the language.

It is supplemented by the Standard ML Basis Library, which defines a common basis of types that are shared by all implementations of Standard ML.
