For instance, the order of steps is not necessarily specified (at best, a
partial order is given): cream the butter and sugar, then add the rest of
the ingredients (where no order for adding is given for the rest of the
ingredients). Again, compare non-de
functions with computable functions is possibly more convincing than
an identification with the -definable or general recursive functions. For
those who take this view the formal proof of equivalence provides a
justification for Churchs calculus, and allo
computable. Lets consider Clelands example of a recipe for hollandaise
sauce in more detail: Lets suppose that we have an algorithm (a recipe)
that tells us to mix eggs and oil, and that outputs hollandaise sauce.

cases such as these, the notion of effectiveness might not be Churchs,

is mathematically well-understood, and that it provides a theory that
