In C++11, lambda function parameters need to be declared with concrete types.
This allows both capture by value-move and declaring arbitrary members of the lambda, without having a correspondingly named variable in an outer scope [Sutter, 2013].
There is no explicit value for numbers in lambda calculus.
One way to use recursion finding the nth prime number in C++ using lambda functions is the following: auto fact = [] (auto f, int n) {if (n==1) return 1; else return n*f(f,n-1);}; (19)
The C++14 standard gets lambda calculus to new expressive power, namely a lambda expressions will work with any suitable type, implicitly deducing the return type.
