About

For questions about defining recursive functions, recursive algorithms and solving recursive equations.

For questions about defining recursive functions (tail or central embedding), recursive algorithms and solving recursive equations. This can involve custom made recursive formulae (e.g. f[x_]:=f[x-1]) or built-in functions to solve e.g. recurrence equations (RSolve to solve equations of the form a[n + 1] - 2 a[n] == 1), recursive replacement (ReplaceRepeated), or recursive application (Nest, FixedPoint, etc.).
