We may recall the form of recursive equations from N at to any type A and from Tw to B: • y(0) = a; y(succ(x)) = g(x, y(x)) (for Nat) • and f(Lea f ) = t ; f(Succw(x) = g(x, f(x)); f(Lim( f )) = h( f, f ◦ f ) (◦ denotes the composition).

Let f be defined by f(Lea f ) = Lea f, f(Succw(x)) = Succ(f(x)), f(Lim( f )) = Lim( f ◦ d ), using Rec, f( f ) = RecTw→Tw(Lea f )(lxTw .

It is clear that every leafless directed tree is infinite. A vertex u ∈ V is said to be a branching vertex of T if Chi(u) consists of at least two vertices.
