**00:00:00**David Beazley teaches lambda calculus from the ground up in this PyCon 2019 tutorial. He covers the basics of how a function works, and how lambda calculus is used to define functions in Python.**00:05:00**In this video, David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, illustrating how functions are the only thing in the universe that exist. By default, functions must be single-argument, but you can create functions that define new single-argument functions.**00:10:00**David Beazley demonstrates how to model a switch using lambda calculus. The switch has two inputs, an output, and an inner function that returns the output. Left and right functions take a single argument and return a function that chains together.**00:15:00**In this video, David Beazley explains how to represent boolean values using the Lambda calculus. He argues that true and false are the same thing, and that the computer has a notion of boolean values.**00:20:00**The video discusses the lambda calculus, which is a mathematical system used for describing the behavior of variables. It also discusses the boolean operators not and or, and how not works as a replacement for true when describing the behavior of variables. The video concludes with a challenge for attendees to try and define not themselves.**00:25:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, showing how the Python syntax can be used to create a truth table for logical operators. This explanation can be easy to understand, making Logic classes a less daunting subject.**00:30:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, explaining how it works and how to encode logic in terms of function calls. He also discusses the difficulty of debugging code written in lambda calculus.**00:35:00**This video explains lambda calculus, a branch of mathematics that is used to describe functions. It begins by teaching preschoolers how to do numbers, and then demonstrates how the numbers in lambda calculus are simply abstractions of functions.**00:40:00**In this video, David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up. He explains that lambda calculus is a way of representing numbers that is similar to how we represent numbers in kindergarten. lambda calculus allows us to create functions that return other functions, and it allows us to do multiplications and divisions without hitting an upper limit.**00:45:00**In this video, David Beazley explores lambda calculus from the ground up, discussing some of the challenges faced along the way. One challenge is how to represent zero in the system, which is equivalent to not calling a function. Another challenge is how to implement numbers without the anchor function.**00:50:00**In this video, David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, explaining how it works and how to use it to do math. One of the challenges is that you need to provide a function that returns the successor of a number, which is defined as the next number after the given number.**00:55:00**In this video, David Beazley discusses the lambda calculus, a formal system for mathematical calculation. He covers the basics of the notation and then shows how substitution can be used to write Python code in the form of equations. He also discusses the concept of successor and decrement, and how they can be used to solve problems.

He then goes on to show how multiplication works in the same way, using an example to show how it breaks the mind.**01:05:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, discussing how functions are defined and how they behave. He also discusses how equality is defined in lambda calculus, and how one can debug code using it.**01:10:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, explaining how to write code that is resistant to errors. He also introduces a function called "perhaps" which can be chained together to create complex code. This code might be useful in the future when working with data that is not necessarily 'none'.**01:15:00**David Beazley explains lambda calculus, a foundational logic abstraction used in many programming languages. He introduces a class and shows how operator overloading allows you to do data-and-function chaining. He also discusses how monads may be involved in the API of the lambda calculus.**01:35:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up at PyCon 2019.

Beazley also discusses how lambda calculus can be used to solve problems in mathematics and computer science.**01:40:00**David Beazley discusses function definitions, lambdas, and minimal notation in his PyCon 2019 talk Lambda Calculus from the Ground Up. The talk covers the history of lambda calculus, how function definitions can be shortened using lambda functions, and some potential drawbacks of this approach.**01:45:00**In this video, David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, going over the syntax and rules of the language. He also explains some of the conversions that can take place on lambda expressions.**01:50:00**In this video, David Beazley discusses the substitution rule for lambda expressions. The rule states that you can substitute the arguments in the parentheses for the function's expression. For example, you could rewrite the expression "lambda Y" as "Y". This can be confusing because there is only a single argument, the "a B". The "a B" that goes in is the argument X, and the "Y" that remains is the argument Y. If you had a second argument, like Z, then the Y would disappear and the Z would be the argument.**01:55:00**David Beazley explains the lambda calculus, which is a formal system for reasoning about mathematics. This system has Rules of Symbolic Replacement which allow for the derivation of mathematical truths from a set of axioms.

David Beazley's video on lambda calculus explains how the language is abstract and can be used to describe everything from numbers to algorithms. He also provides an example of how to create a recursive function using lambda calculus.

**02:00:00**The lambda calculus is a formal system for mathematical description of algorithms and data structures. It was developed in the 1930s, and its notation was borrowed for use in the Lisp programming language. In the 1950s, lambda calculus was used to prove the equivalence of Turing machines and lambda calculus.**02:05:00**Lambda calculus is a formal language for describing functions. David Beazley demonstrates how to create a data structure using lambda calculus.**02:10:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus, a formal language used for describing functions.

This can be a challenge to write in a way that is not self-referential, and can lead to interesting programming problems when dealing with recursion.**02:50:00**David Beazley discusses Lambda calculus, showing how to express recursion using function arguments. He points out that in order to reference the function within the recursion, you need to cycle through the arguments, like in a repeater. This solution to the problem of referencing a recursive function within a code block is to copy and paste the code instead of referencing the function within the code block.**02:55:00**David Beazley discusses lambda calculus from the ground up, showing how to create a recursive function using code that can be easily printed. He also discusses how short-circuiting of arguments can make the code more readable.

He explains that if fact is a fixed point of a given function, then Y of R equals R Y of R. This would allow for the replacement of fact with Y in code. However, this still does not explain how Y of R would help in solving a problem.**03:10:00**In this video, David Beazley explains the Y Combinator, a device for recursion in functional languages without self-references.
