    eg.
    f(x) = f(x2) + a

    Slow and Steady wins the race... if and only if :
    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !

    It a function defined using a call to iteself. For instance:

    f(n) =
    f(n-1)+f(n-2) for n >2
    2 for n = 2
    1 for n = 1

    That defines the Fibonacci sequence recursively.

    That's not a function.

    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.
    A dunce once searched for fire with a lighted lantern.
    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.
