Recursion is where a mathmatical function is defined in terms of itself. For example, the factorial function can be defined by the rule n! = n(n1)! with the special case that 0! = 1.
Modern computer programming languages support recursion. Use of recursion in programming can result in elegant solutions but is not usually the most efficient approach.
