# Type classes

In the notes, we defined types for Circle and Rectangle that were instances of this Shape class:

class Shape a where
area :: a -> Float
bump :: a -> a
1. Write a data definition for a Triangle class, with a constructor also called Triangle. Its arguments should be six Float values, representing the $$x,y$$ coordinates of the triangle’s three vertices. Your definition should automatically derive the instances for Show and Eq.

2. Instantiate the Shape class for the Triangle type. To compute the area of a triangle, use the formula at http://www.mathopenref.com/coordtrianglearea.html. (Often you’ll see the area of a triangle written as $$\frac{bh}{2}$$ where $$b$$ is the length of the base and $$h$$ is the height. But that formula presumes that you know the base and height, which can be difficult to calculate from three arbitrary coordinates.)

Here are some examples using Triangle with the two functions in Shape:

ghci> area (Triangle 15 15 30 25 15 35)
150.0
ghci> area (Triangle 25 15 31 (-5) 41 40)
235.0
ghci> bump (Triangle 25 15 31 (-5) 41 40)
Triangle {ax = 26.0, ay = 16.0, bx = 32.0, by = -4.0, cx = 42.0, cy = 41.0}

You can compare your area results to those given by the interactive gadget on the page I linked for the formula.

3. Just like the Monoid type class has some associated laws that instances should obey, we can define a law for Shape: the area of a shape should not be affected by bumping it to a new position! Encode that law as a Boolean function that works on any Shape instance:

bumpPreservesArea :: Shape a => a -> Bool

You will compare the area to the ‘bumped’ area, and if they are “close enough”, return True. (Close enough can be defined as the absolute value of the difference should be less than 0.001, for example.)

ghci> bumpPreservesArea (Circle 3.4 5.5 1.8)
True
ghci> bumpPreservesArea (Rectangle 3 5 8 9)
True
ghci> bumpPreservesArea (Triangle 0 0 1 9 2 10)
True

# Laziness

Here we will use laziness to create and process (potentially) infinite data structures.

1. Create a function powersOf with the following signature that generates all the non-negative integer powers of the given base.

powersOf :: Num a => a -> [a]

Here are examples of the powers of two and powers of three:

ghci> take 10 $powersOf 2 [1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512] ghci> take 10$ powersOf 3
[1,3,9,27,81,243,729,2187,6561,19683]
ghci> powersOf 3 !! 20
3486784401
2. Create a function merge with the following signature. It will take two lists of ordered elements – each list should be in sorted order already. Then it will merge the elements together into a new list, maintaining sorted order.

merge :: Ord a => [a] -> [a] -> [a]

Here is an example with finite lists:

ghci> merge [3,7,18] [2,8,10,24]
[2,3,7,8,10,18,24]

But it should also work if one of the lists is infinite (note that 16 appears twice in the result, because it’s in the range [10..20] and it’s a power of two):

ghci> take 20 $merge [10..20] (powersOf 2) [1,2,4,8,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,16,17,18,19,20,32,64,128,256] Or if both lists are infinite: ghci> take 20$ merge (powersOf 3) (powersOf 2)
[1,1,2,3,4,8,9,16,27,32,64,81,128,243,256,512,729,1024,2048,2187]

1. In the notes for 19 October, we wrote a function preorderState to thread a state through a pre-order tree traversal.

preorderState :: (a -> s -> (b,s)) -> Tree a -> s -> (Tree b, s)
preorderState gen Leaf s0 = (Leaf, s0)
preorderState gen (Branch value left right) s0 =
(Branch newValue newLeft newRight, s3)
where (newValue, s1) = gen value s0
(newLeft, s2) = preorderState gen left s1
(newRight, s3) = preorderState gen right s2

Change that to make postorderState on the same Tree type. It should behave like this:

ghci> printTree sample1
- "A"
|- "K"
|  |- "M"
|  |  |- *
|  |  |- "Q"
|  |- "P"
|- *

ghci> (t0, _) = postorderState withCounter sample1 1
ghci> printTree t0
- ("A",5)
|- ("K",4)
|  |- ("M",2)
|  |  |- *
|  |  |- ("Q",1)
|  |- ("P",3)
|- *

ghci> (t0, _) = postorderState inject sample1 "Z"
ghci> printTree t0
- "K"
|- "P"
|  |- "Q"
|  |  |- *
|  |  |- "Z"
|  |- "M"
|- *

where inject, withCounter, printTree, and so forth are defined as in the notes.
