From the Preface:
Kurt Nørmarks wrote:This is a teaching material about functional programming in Scheme. The current version of the material is a 2nd edition. Compared the first edition from the Fall 2002, the title has been slightly changed. Scheme is a pragmatic choice of programming language in the functional programming paradigm, with unique flexibility due to the membership of the Lisp family of languages. Furthermore, Scheme is both very powerful and rather small compared to other Lisp languages.

As the title indicates, we are concerned with the functional subset of Scheme. As a unique aspect of this material, we illustrate the functional paradigm in Scheme with examples from the area of web programming and web authoring. This is done on the ground of LAML - the Lisp Abstracted Markup Language.

We hypothesize that an approach with HTML and XML examples is more motivating than many other approaches, which often tend to illustrate Scheme programming via examples of only little practical relevance.

Also available in HTML version (along with the slides).
