About

The course will present classical mathematical topics from a computing science perspective: giving specifications of the concepts introduced, paying attention to syntax and types, and ultimately constructing DSLs of some mathematical areas mentioned below.

The lecture topics are:

  • Introduction to functional programming and calculational proofs
  • Introduction to Domain Specific Languages (DSLs): case study linear algebra
  • DSLs and mathematics: case study category theory 
  • Real analysis: mean value theorems, Taylor formulas
  • Real analysis: a DSL for power series
  • More linear algebra: eigenvalues and optimization
