Thus by using register machines, we arrive at exactly the class of general recursive partial functions, a class we originally defined in terms of primitive recursion and search. 5 Definability in Formal Languages We will briefly sketch several other ways in which the concept of effective calculability might be formalized. Details will be left to the imagination. In 1936, in his article in which he presented what is now known as Church’s thesis, Alonzo Church utilized a formal system, the λ-calculus.

If py does not divide x, then (x)y = 0, harmlessly enough. Also (0)y = 0, but for a different reason. 18. Say that y is a sequence number if either y = [ ] or y = [x0 , x1 , . . , xk ] for some k and some x0 , x1 , . . , xk . For example, 1 is a sequence number but 50 is not. The set of sequence numbers is primitive recursive; see Exercise 14. The set of sequence numbers starts off as {1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, . }. 19. There is a primitive recursive function lh such that lh[x0 , x1 , . . , xk ] = k + 1.

It includes nowhere differentiable functions, whose graphs cannot be drawn without lifting the pencil – there is no way to impart a velocity vector to the pencil. But accurate or not, the class of ε-δ-continuous functions has been found to be a natural and important class in mathematical analysis. The Computability Concept 27 Very much the same situation occurs with computability. It is fair to ask whether the precise concept of a computable partial function is an accurate formalization of the informal concept of an effectively calculable function.
