Convergence Theorem for Programming Languages

July 1, 2014

Let L = the LISP language. Let P = a programming language different from L, i.e. L \cap P = \oslash. Let t = time. Then \lim_{t \to \infty} P = L.

Trivial, just look at the extensions they are making on Python, Ruby, Java, C# and C++11.

    Hm, to express that L is different from P it would be more appropriate to state that the set difference of L and P is not empty instead of stating an empty intersection. Furthermore I’m quite sure that no extensions are being done on C++11 šŸ™‚

      Thanks Valentin.

      You have a point, but I am proving the strong case šŸ™‚
