beta abstraction

[lambda-calculus] The conversion of an expression to an application of a lambda abstraction to an argument expression. Some subterm of the original expression becomes the argument of the abstraction and the rest becomes its body. E.g.

		4+1 --> ( x . x+1) 4


The opposite of beta abstraction is beta reduction. These are the two kinds of beta conversion.
