FIX

1. {Federal Information Exchange}.

2. {Financial Information eXchange}.

(2001-05-14)

fix

1. The {fixed point} {combinator}. Called Y in
{combinatory logic}. Fix is a {higher-order function} which
returns a fixed point of its argument (which is a function).

fix :: (a -> a) -> a
fix f = f (fix f)

Which satisfies the equation

fix f = x such that f x = x.

Somewhat surprisingly, fix can be defined as the non-recursive
{lambda abstraction}:

fix = \ h . (\ x . h (x x)) (\ x . h (x x))

Since this involves self-application, it has an {infinite
type}. A function defined by

f x1 .. xN = E

can be expressed as

f = fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E)
= (\ f . \ x1 ... \xN . E)
(fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E))
= let f = (fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E))
in \ x1 ... \xN . E

If f does not occur {free} in E (i.e. it is not {recursive})
then this reduces to simply

f = \ x1 ... \ xN . E

In the case where N = 0 and f is free in E, this defines an
infinite data object, e.g.

ones = fix (\ ones . 1 : ones)
= (\ ones . 1 : ones) (fix (\ ones . 1 : ones))
= 1 : (fix (\ ones . 1 : ones))
= 1 : 1 : ...

Fix f is also sometimes written as mu f where mu is the Greek
letter or alternatively, if f = \ x . E, written as mu x . E.

Compare {quine}.
