Calculators Online lambda calculator

  1. Sep 21, 2006 #1
    Does anyone know of an online lambda calculator? Or actually I need an online calculator that allows the result to be used in the next calculation. Like the "Ans[wer]" key on some realworld calculators. It allows me to see for myself how for example the Cauchy series "1/Ans + Ans/2" converges. The difference with a sequence like "2*2 Ans" is that know the previous answer have to be used on two places in the equation.

    If I were you, I'd just download Maxima (the free analogue of Mathematica) or Octave (the free analogue of MATLAB). Both should be more than capable of what you're trying to do.

    I don't fully understand your post. Are you looking for an interpreter for the lambda calculus, as in lisp?
