Archaeological dig to find the first Lisp example of the YcombinatorI'm trying to find the first Lisp examples of the Ycombinator. Beyond that I am also trying to find the first time the Ycombinator was demonstrated using the factorial function and the mutually recursive definition of odd/even. What works should I be looking at? The first Scheme paper references fixedpoint combinators at page 16 and also shows the familiar LISP definition of the factorial function. But, it does not express the factorial function using a fixedpoint operator. By filipallberg at 20170130 22:42  LtU Forum  previous forum topic  next forum topic  other blogs  2172 reads
