You might start here (http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~gmh//faq.html) which gives a link to here (http://www.research.avayalabs.com/user/wadler//realworld/) which has a list of industrial applications which have live links:
* Anno Domini - Year 2000 remediation for Cobol
* LS/2000 - Year 2000 remediation for Cobol, PL/I, and RPG
* Shop.com Merchant System - an e-commerce database
* Peval - Partial evaluator for airline scheduling
* HP Event Correlation Description Language
* Design/CPN - Computer Tool for Coloured Petri Nets
* ptk - Test generator for Message Sequence Charts
* Combinators for financial derivatives
Those should give you something to chew on (or plagarize ;) )
By functional programming do you mean languages in which everything is a function for example (+ 3 4) instead of (3 + 4)? If so. Scheme/LISP is a fairly well used programming language for robotics and artificial intelligence.

YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCKY YUCK
If you want to learn functional programming, go to Carnegie Mellon...
They're big on SML....it's a NASTY language.....
We used it in our Data Structures II class....
You can download it, and check it out...but I dunno y you would want to....
Yes, the languages are extremely confusing at times. Especially when you have parentheses all over the place like ))))))))))). My final project in my Scheme class was to make a program in Scheme that would translate Scheme into Java, C++, and Pascal. Take into account......this was first semester freshman year at UT :/
