Can anyone suggest some good tutorials, papers, or books to read for
learning how to reason about laziness, specifically, time and space
complexity? I seem to remember that Richard Bird's Introduction to
Functional Programming book has a chapter or so on this subject, but
what other material would anyone recommend for trying to understand
how to write efficient, lazy algorithms? Maybe in the spirit of
updating Wikis and such, we can collect this sort of material
