In this new and accessible textbook the essential features of
SML are taught with the use of extensive examples and exercises.
The book will be ideal for a first level course in functional programming,
presenting the functional paradigm as a useful approach in its own right,
as well as helping to develop an understanding of concepts which are more
widely applicable, such as pattern matching, case structuring, recursion
and list processing.

Elementary Standard ML is a practical and thorough introduction to the
language which will be ideal for a first course in functional programming.
Computer Science students will find this a useful primer for learning and
exploiting SML.
