You know, Functional Programming is one of my favorite topic. See posts:

Lambda Calculus: Links, News and Resources (1)

Erlang: Links, News and Resources (1)

Haskell: Links, News and resources (1)

These are some of the relevant links I have collected about Functional Programming in general:
In computer science, functional programming is a programming paradigm that treats computation as the evaluation of mathematical functions and avoids state and mutable data. It emphasizes the application of functions, in contrast to the imperative programming style, which emphasizes changes in state.[1] Functional programming has its roots in lambda calculus, a formal system developed in the 1930s to investigate function definition, function application, and recursion. Many functional programming languages can be viewed as elaborations on the lambda calculus.[1]
