A complete characterization of primitive recursive intensional behaviours
LACL, Université Paris Est, France; email@example.com
We give a complete characterization of the class of functions that are the intensional behaviours of primitive recursive (PR) algorithms. This class is the set of primitive recursive functions that have a null basic case of recursion. This result is obtained using the property of ultimate unarity and a geometrical approach of sequential functions on N the set of positive integers.
