- Choose the most appropriate answer for each question.
- Question 1 :
Roughly, a tuple of arguments could be thought of as a vector, whereas a tuple of parameters could be thought of as a covector (i.e., linear functional). When a function is called, a parameter tuple becomes "bound" to an argument tuple, allowing the function instance itself to be ________ to yield a return value. This would be roughly analogous to applying a covector to a vector (by taking their dot product (or, rather, matrix-product of row vector and column vector)) to obtain a scalar.
Whether physical processes can hypercompute, i. e. _______ Turing uncomputable functions “ultimately depends upon the causal (versus formal) structure of the world” (p. 144).
