Fields in Physics are like Curried Functions
Physics for Functional Programmers
Gary T. Leavens
Good motivating examples for teaching the utility of curried functions
can be taken from Physics. The curried function perspective can also
be used to help functional programmers understand fields in Physics.
The correspondence between the curried function view of vector fields
and the usual view taken in Physics is also explained.
