Why is it called the lambda calculus anyway
What is it calculating


@ionchy lambda calculus is when you have little rocks arranged in a λ shape

@emacsomancer @haskal @ionchy which one of the two possibilities (according to Wikipedia)? the "â -> ^a -> Λa -> λa" or the "eeny meeny miny moe" one?

@Vierkantor @haskal @ionchy

That's a good question. The typographical possibility makes the most sense to me, but I suppose there are reasons to doubt it.

I've never played eenie meenie miney moe with greek letters before.
