Continue with Functional Programming: Haskell

This time I think we will deal a bit with Haskel, try to have a feel of it characteristics, which is functional in a mathematical sense. We will go directly to function in Haskell. That's where we will spend most of the time with. I assume that you know how to install haskell. let's start our terminal and begin gchi where we can test Haskell with console. gchi GHCi, version 7.10.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/ :? for...

Sampling-event standard takes flight on the wings of butterflies

Data collected from systematic monitoring schemes is highly valuable.

A couple of years ago there was no faithful way...
