- Learning different methods to analyse, treat and express parallelism in functional languages,
- Writing and analysing parallel functional programs in different languages or language extensions,
- Analysing underlying implementation techniques,
- Practicing scientific working methods (recognition, formulation, solving problems, training of abstraction skills),
- Training oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion
None. The competences taught in the following module are recommended: Declarative Programming.

This page describes a module according to the latest valid module guide in Wintersemester 2020/21. Most rules valid for a module are not covered by the examination regulations and can therefore be updated on a semesterly basis. The following versions are available in the online module guide:
