Lali and the Mathematician

Something in the blogosphere just got a little less esoteric. Lalita and her Resident Mathematician have a brief discussion on “Recursion”.

“A function can be thought of as a sort of mathematical vending machine. If you put in a certain kind of number the function will return to you a number. Not all forms of coins are accepted by every vending machine, you see?” The Resident Mathematician said.

The Resident Mathematician is rather deft at explaining. Thanks Lali!
