From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  map
  
     1.  function.
  
     2.  In functional programming, the most common
     higher-order function over lists.  Map applies its first
     argument to each element of its second argument (a list) and
     returns the list of results.
  
     	map :: (a -> b) -> [a] -> [b]
     	map f []     = []
     	map f (x:xs) = f x : map f xs
  
     This can be generalised to types other than lists.
