Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 606,163 views on Thursday, 15 March 2018 our article of the day is Combinatory logic.
Combinatory logic is a notation to eliminate the need for quantified variables in mathematical logic. It was introduced by Moses Schönfinkel and Haskell Curry, and has more recently been used in computer science as a theoretical model of computation and also as a basis for the design of functional programming languages. It is based on combinators. A combinator is a higher-order function that uses only function application and earlier defined combinators to define a result from its arguments.
