Meaningless Sets in Infinitary Combinatory Logic

Paula Severi & Fer-Jan De Vries
In this paper we study meaningless sets in infinitary combinatory logic. So far only a handful of meaningless sets were known. We show that there are uncountably many meaningless sets. As an application to the semantics of finite combinatory logics, we show that there exist uncountably many combinatory algebras that are not a lambda algebra. We also study ways of weakening the axioms of meaningless sets to get, not only sufficient, but also necessary conditions...
