comment Why do mathematicians use single-letter variables?
@muntoo, Ok, TheOutputCharactes is na overkill, but other than that, the first expressuion is clearer, and it would take the same time to write both of this. What odes flatten do? Is it clear from its name?

comment Why do mathematicians use single-letter variables?
pow, len, strcpy, sqrt. If those libraries were designed today, they would be Power, Length, StringCopy, SquareRoot. It's natural to shorten the notation when you are doing it by hand, but since I no longed do it by hand, I don't mind if a method is called ThrowStackOverflowException instead of thrSOExc, in fact I prefer the longer name.

comment Can we reduce the number of states of a Turing Machine?
If we ignore the alphabet size, and look just at the number of states, the pigeon-hole principle applies again. There might exist algorithms for transforming a n-state Turing machine into an n-1 state Turing machine, but it wont work for all n's
