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.
