An electrically neutral baryon having a mass 11,000 times that of the electron and a mean lifetime of approximately 1.1 × 10-12 seconds. See Table at subatomic particle.
mathematics (Normally written with a Greek letter lambda). A branch of mathematical logic developed by Alonzo Church in the late 1930s and early 1940s, dealing with the application of functions to their arguments. The pure lambda-calculus contains no constants – neither numbers nor mathematical functions such as plus – and is untyped. It consists only […]
