Of course, in the classic logical conundrum,

### Re: "Fixed Points"

Came across the theory of Coincidence Points where f(x) = g(x) and, as two and three Posts above, where M(X) = Xyields(X) is " called " a Fixed Point . Coincidence Points theory is a generalization of Fixed Points theory where a key characteristic is a guaranteed solution, that is there must be some...

### Re: "Fixed Points"

Much Obliged jaap , I am impressed that you identified the source (! and hopefully someday you will see why I didn't) and maybe "usefulness" is why Smullyan defered to -- "I call X a Fixed Point..." as opposed to what normally, formally defines a "Fixed Point". Fixed Points being the terminating co...

Thanks for asking jaap , "In what case?" Good question. At the risk of boring you, here's the context (which I recommend just skimming) -- Arnie next explained to me that most of the previous results were but special cases of one very lovely general fact involving the important concept of Fixed Poin...

### "Fixed Points"

Per Wikipedia, a "Fixed Point" occurs when the function f(c) = c. There's a similarly simple graph too... Per another reputable source: "I call X a Fixed Point of [function] M if X yields M(X)." In this case, X is a string and X is a function, a function of itself. For example, if X = 33233 then X "...

Thankyou Both, hk and jaap , As you said jaap , (I) should call the class Main. (and) Surely somewhere on that site there is some kind of documentation or help file that tells you about what it expects of the code you want it to run? And hk dug out that documentation/help file from the site itself(...

*For elementary number theory, and with used offerings as cheap as $6.25 @ Amazon.com,*
