inductive turing machines

the simplest realistic inductive TM (sITM) is essentially similar to an ordinary TM with seperate tapes for input, working and output. an ITM doesnt need to halt in order to produce a result, since the 'result' can be seen as an unchanging (or itteratively converging) word/s on the output tape.

infinite data and infinite time machines

limit recursive functions

limit recursive functions are between the computable and the arbitrarily uncomputable.
