In addition to their relevance to certain questions in the foundations of Set Theory (Ellentuck 1969), a leading application of combinatorial functions and operators has been to the branches of computability theory known as theory of recursive equivalence types (Myhill 1958) and isol theory (Nerode 1961; Dekker 1966); a fairly extensive survey of the latter area has been given in (McLaughlin 1982).
