The initialalgebra approach to modelling datatypes consists of giving constructors for building larger objects of that type from smaller ones, and laws identifying different ways of constructing the same object. The recursive decomposition of objects of the datatype leads directly to a recursive pattern of computation on those objects, which is very helpful for both functional and parallel programming. We show how to model a particular kind of directed acyclic graph using this initialalgebra approach.
