Number of pages: 162

This book describes data structures from the point of view of functional languages, with examples, and presents design techniques that allow programmers to develop their own functional data structures. The author includes both classical data structures, such as red-black trees and binomial queues, and a host of new data structures developed exclusively for functional languages.

'Elementary Algorithms' is a free book about elementary algorithms and data structures. This book doesn't only focus on an imperative (or procedural) approach, but also includes purely functional algorithms and data structures.
by Marko Petkovsek, Herbert S. Wilf, Doron Zeilberger - AK Peters, Ltd.
The book shows how some computer algorithms can simplify complex summations and if there is no such simplification they will prove this to be the case. The authors present the underlying mathematical theory, and the principle theorems and proofs.
