> Mathematics and programming are not really all that related to each other

With respect, that tells us much more about you than about math or programming.

No Haskell expert, or formal methods expert, or complexity theory expert, would ever make a statement like that.

You may be right that math is quite a distance from day to day development, of course. (I don't think I'm being pedantic here, but perhaps.)

What do you have in mind? Design patterns and software development practices, or something else?
