Binary Lambda Calculus and Combinatory Logic

pdf-format:


Abstract

We introduce binary representations of both lambda calculus
and combinatory logic terms, and demonstrate their simplicity
by providing very compact parser-interpreters for these binary
languages.
We demonstrate their application to Algorithmic Information Theory
with several concrete upper bounds on program-size complexity,
including an elegant self-delimiting code for binary strings.
