Functional Programming - Algebraic Data Type

About

An algebraic data type is a data type that is the input and the output of its own operations.

Benefits

  • An algebraic structure can be composed before being executed. This is a composite type
  • An algebraic Structure allows a reasoning and manipulation independently of physical data representation.
  • Every operations can be chained to create a pipeline.

Example

Number

All number are algebraic data type.

<MATH> 1 + 2 - 3 </MATH>

Relation

A relation (table, view, …) is an algebraic data type because every operations on a relation output a relation.
