late 14c., "set (one's eyes or mind) on something," probably from Old French *fixer, from fixe "fixed," from Latin fixus "fixed, fast, immovable, established, settled," past participle of figere "to fix, fasten," from PIE root *dhigw- "to stick, to fix."
Sense of "fasten, attach" is c.1400; that of "settle, assign" is pre-1500 and evolved into "adjust, arrange" (1660s), then "repair" (1737). Sense of "tamper with" (a fight, a jury, etc.) is 1790. As euphemism for "castrate a pet" it dates from 1930. Related: Fixed; fixedly (1590s); fixing.
"position from which it is difficult to move," 1809, American English, from fix (v.). Meaning "dose of narcotic" is from 1934, shortened from fix-up (1867, originally in reference to liquor).
fix :: (a -> a) -> a fix f = f (fix f)
Which satisfies the equation
fix f = x such that f x = x.
Somewhat surprisingly, fix can be defined as the non-recursive lambda abstraction:
fix = \ h . (\ x . h (x x)) (\ x . h (x x))
Since this involves self-application, it has an infinite type. A function defined by
f x1 .. xN = E
can be expressed as
f = fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E) = (\ f . \ x1 ... \xN . E) (fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E)) = let f = (fix (\ f . \ x1 ... \ xN . E)) in \ x1 ... \xN . E
If f does not occur free in E (i.e. it is not recursive) then this reduces to simply
f = \ x1 ... \ xN . E
In the case where N = 0 and f is free in E, this defines an infinite data object, e.g.
ones = fix (\ ones . 1 : ones) = (\ ones . 1 : ones) (fix (\ ones . 1 : ones)) = 1 : (fix (\ ones . 1 : ones)) = 1 : 1 : ...
Fix f is also sometimes written as mu f where mu is the Greek letter or alternatively, if f = \ x . E, written as mu x . E.
