Matt, thanks for noticing the typo. Gonna fix it.
Tommy, I can only think of lambda calculus that, if I understand correctly, uses Y-combinator to recurse.
Bluestorm, I am also familiar with Y! (Y-bang) combinator (from The Seasoned Schemer book). But I am not exactly sure how it's different from Y-combinator. I am still thinking about it. The derivation is similar to Y-combinator's but it's a bit different. The book says that it works the same as Y-combinator but then gives an example which Y-combinator processes but Y! combinator goes into an infinite loop. And thanks for the in-depth comment!
I wrote the Y! out when I was reading that chapter. I posted the code here: (define Y-bang ...) and example where Y-bang fails, but Y works.
Bruce, nice explanation! Thanks for sharing!
