Summary: Today we consider recursion over a different domain, that of the natural numbers.
(define recursive-proc (lambda (params) (if (base-case-test) (base-case params) (combine (partof params) (recursive-proc (simplify params))))))
(define recursive-proc (lambda (params) (cond ((base-case-test) (base-case params)) ((special-case-test) (combine (partof params) (recursive-proc (simplify params)))) (else (recursive-proc (simplify params))))))

part-ofwas almost always

I usually create these pages
on the fly, which means that I rarely
proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details.
It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for
more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
