  50. 1. The fixed point combinator. Called Y incombinatory logic. Fix is a higher-order function whichreturns a fixed point of its argument (which is a function).fix :: (a -> a) -> afix f = f (fix f)Which satisfies the equationfix f = x such that f x = x.Somewhat surprisingly, fix can be defined as the non-recursivelambda abstraction:fix = \ h . (\ x . h (x x)) (\ x . h (x x))Since this involves self-application, it has an infinitetype. A function defined byf x1 .. xN = Ecan be expressed asf = fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E) = (\ f . \ x1 ... \xN . E) (fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E)) = let f = (fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E)) in \ x1 ... \xN . EIf f does not occur free in E (i.e. it is not recursive)then this reduces to simplyf = \ x1 ... \ xN . EIn the case where N = 0 and f is free in E, this defines aninfinite 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 Greekletter or alternatively, if f = \ x . E, written as mu x . E.Compare quine.2. bug fix. foldoc_fs
