Definition df-recs 7635
Description: Define a function recs(𝐹) on On, the class of ordinal numbers, by transfinite recursion given a rule 𝐹 which sets the next value given all values so far. See df-rdg 7673 for more details on why this definition is desirable. Unlike df-rdg 7673 which restricts the update rule to use only the previous value, this version allows the update rule to use all previous values, which is why it is described as "strong", although it is actually more primitive. See recsfnon 7666 and recsval 7667 for the primary contract of this definition. (Contributed by Stefan O'Rear, 18-Jan-2015.) (Revised by Scott Fenton, 3-Aug-2020.)
