How to reference F# in a research paper?

If you're writing an academic paper or journal, what should you reference for F#?  Well, of course it's up to you! 🙂 But the topic came up here at MSR Cambridge this evening (after all, it is that time of year - POPL deadline!)

Here are some options. I've included a BibTex reference for Expert F# further below since it's not so easy to find an auto-generated one on the usual sites.


 Here is a bibtex entry for Expert F#, given here because again the academic reference systems don't seem to track books very well!

@book {springerlink:10.1007/978-1-4302-0285-1_19,

    author = {Syme, Don and Granicz, Adam and Cisternino, Antonio},

    title = {Expert F#},

    publisher = {Apress},

    isbn = {978-1-4302-0285-1},

    url = {},

    year = {2007} }

  1. This is a very good Quick Guide for studing F#!

    Type Providers and Information Rich Progrmaming of F#3.0 is a great feature,  since from now on, it can use F# to build large scale business projects with EDM features.  However, it has some little regret that the clause of the Query Expressions does not support the  Match Expressions, when using the dynamic conditions, the Match Expressions will make the query sentence more concise and beautiful, I look forward to this greate feature.
