 for combinatory logic
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  combinatory logic
      A system for reducing the operational notation of
     logic, mathematics or a functional language to a sequence
     of modifications to the input data structure.  First
     introduced in the 1920's by Schoenfinkel.  Re-introduced
     independently by Haskell Curry in the late 1920's (who
     quickly learned of Schoenfinkel's work after he had the idea).
     Curry is really responsible for most of the development, at
     least up until work with Feys in 1958.
     See combinator.
