If you have a question about this talk, please contact Neel Krishnaswami.

This is a bit of a free-form discussion about monads, focusing on what monads mean computationally, especially their dual role for representing “data” and for representing “effects”. The context for the discussion is a theory of processes that I am currently working on. This brings up some interesting connections and contrasts with “coalgebras” (more precisely, functor-coalgebras).

My running notes on monads can be found at http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~udr/notes/monads.pdf
