<*logic*> A system for reducing the operational notation of
logic, mathematics or a functional language to a sequence
of modifications to the input data structure. First
introduced in the 1920's by Schoenfinkel. Re-introduced
independently by Haskell Curry in the late 1920's (who
quickly learned of Schoenfinkel's work after he had the idea).
Curry is really responsible for most of the development, at
least up until work with Feys in 1958.
