A direct proof of the confluence of combinatory strong reduction. (English) Zbl 1187.68125
Summary: I give a proof of the confluence of combinatory strong reduction that does not use the one of \(\lambda \)-calculus. I also give simple and direct proofs of a standardization theorem for this reduction and the strong normalization of simply typed terms.
