Definition df-recs 7707
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 7745 for more details on why this definition is desirable. Unlike df-rdg 7745 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 7738 and recsval 7739 for the primary contract of this definition. (Contributed by Stefan O'Rear, 18-Jan-2015.) (Revised by Scott Fenton, 3-Aug-2020.)
