Composition of functions in F# is easily achieved by using the >> operator. You can also chain an arbitary amount of functions (represented as a list or sequence) together by folding the list/seq with >>. [More formally: the set of endomorphisms 'a -> 'a forms a monoid with the binary, associative operator ">>" (or "<<") and the neutral element "id".]

Three ways to split a list in half (but not necessarily in the middle). A forth version added that's very short and should be fast, as we only use List.fold. New champ found.

This snippet based on Binet's formula combined with fast power algorithm. Four multiplications run in parallel, thus processor with four cores recommended. Bitwise operators improve divisions and multiplications by pow of 2.

Function, what calculates x^n by non-recursive basic exponentiation squaring algorithm. This method uses the bits of the exponent to determine computing powers. Generic parameter x suitable for any type what supports multiplication. I do not suppose existence of inverse operator like "/", thus parameter n must be a positive integer only. It is not difficult to define an extended variant for a type what supports division.

This snippet is helpfull in the following cases: 1) After a consolidation operation using the fold function we need to know how many elements have been processed. 2) A consolidation operation needs to use the index of each of the elements processed and we don't want to use the mapi function first. 3) A combination of the above. Since the following snippet just adds a wrapper to the existing Fold function we can repeat the approach for arrays and sequences (including the plinq ones)

An abstraction of the following use case: Given a sequence of dates and max temperatures for each date, extract out the initial dates on which the temp is greater than a given threshold for n consecutive days.

Let's have some fun with higher order functions and instead of folding over a list, fold over the prime factors of a number. It can be optimized further by dividing out real primes instead of numbers of the form 6k+/-1, but it's not embarrassingly slow.

@Samuel - saw your post and thought one part was similar to bit shifting I was playing with yesterday, so rewrote the FromBooleans function using a fold instead of ref cells. Probably not as readable as your version though :)
