 The Church-Turing Thesis (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The replacement predicates that Turing and Church proposed were, on the face of it, very different from one another, but they turned out to be equivalent, in the sense that each picks out the same set of mathematical functions.
Church used the (informal) expression ‘effectively calculable’ to indicate that there is an effective method for calculating the values of the function.
The concept of a lambda-definable function is due to Church and Kleene (Church 1932, 1936a, 1941, Kleene 1935) and the concept of a recursive function to Gödel and Herbrand (Gödel 1934, Herbrand 1932).
