Central to much of Vernor's work is the idea of the Singularity, which is going to happen Real Soon Now--a time when (to greatly simplify) computers begin to improve themselves recursively, and quickly become independent of human control, which presumably would have profound effects on human consciousness and, ultimately, what the idea of "human nature" will actually be.
When US intelligence tests were introduced in Mexico, the results were demoralizing to Mexican educators because they did not realize, as Stern points out, that "intelligence tests functioned recursively, spawning findings about "race," class and difference that were embodied a priori in the tests' scales and spectrums" (p.
Douglas Hofstadter's classic (non-fiction) Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid (1979) explores recursion and other aspects of mathematics in music, logic and art, circling recursively around Kurt Godel, Maurits Escher, and Johann Sebastian Bach--and, most appropriately, Lewis Carroll (the pen-name for a major nineteenth century mathematician).
In the third text, Flavio Carvalho de Vasconcelos, Isabella Gouveia de Vasconcelos and Joao Marcelo Crubellate predict the relationship between stress-inducing practices, individual responses and performance to be recursively explained which implies that control of stress in organizations is as complex as the level of stress in society: it will depend on the control of stress levels coming from society putting an end to any management aspirations to use stress as a managing mechanism and for inducing behavior.
What we found was that the project had been seriously delayed because the requirements gathering personnel were being recursively manipulated by the users, and requirements were changed multiple times.

The central keystone of this section (from Chapters 18 to 23) is that some problems that are not recursive in the natural state variables can be written recursively by augmenting the set of state variables with a promised continuation value.
Ssorin-Chaikov initially lays out several premises that he will explore: 1) that "failure" is a continuous discourse during the Tsarist and Soviet periods and is used to invoke further state intervention (drawing on Bruce Grant's (1995) idiom of "a century of perestroikas"; 2) that "the state" and "indigenous" are not fixed cultural constructions, but domains recursively and differently defined in relation to each other over time; and 3) that the etatization of work during the Soviet period eventually led to the production of new "traditional" lifestyles and identities among the Evenki, who discursively exploited concepts of "modernity" and "traditionality" in their attempts to manipulate or deflect state agendas.
The derivative security is valued based on these asset prices by recursively working back through the model from the derivative's final maturity.
