My guess would be the relation of streams, represented as lazy, not completely evaluated lists, and the evaluation strategies. The practical part is easier, feeding [1..] to various functions in GHCi. I have found [Ennals2003optimistic], but it seems to go in wrong direction.

If you mean streams as in stream fusion then I hope chapter 3 of my
PhD thesis will be of some help (when it is finally published). If you
mean streams as in always-infinite co-inductive sequences then a good
starting point is probably "Functional Pearl: Streams and Unique Fixed
Points" by Ralf Hinze.
