of applications in theoretical computer science. Concepts like Category, Functor, Monad, and others, which were originally deﬁned in Category Theory, have become pivotal for the understanding of modern Functional Programming (FP) languages and paradigms. The meaning and applications of these terms in FP can be understood without in-depth knowledge of the corresponding mathematical deﬁnitions and axiomatic. However, a common knowledge of the underlying theory can help FP programmers understand the design and structure of commonly used libraries and tools and be more productive. Category Theory
• Functors Shamelessly taken from wikibooks of haskell Hask category treats Haskell types as objects and Haskell functions as morphisms and uses for composition ((\circ)) the function ((.)), a function (f :: A -> B) for types A and B is a morphism in Hask.
