1. combinatory 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 1920s by Schoenfinkel. Re-introduced independently by Haskell Curry in the late 1920s who quickly learned of Schoenfinkels work after he had the idea.
