Scarpellini COMPOSITIO MATHEMATICA, Vol. 23, Fasc. 1, 1971, pag. 123-153 Wolters-Noordhoff Publishing Printed in the Netherlands Introduction Problems connected with the foundations of mathematics led C. Spec- tor to consider a certain kind of functional equation. The solution of this functional equation is provided by a certain principle, the ’principle of barrecursion". One problem with respect to this functional equation has up to now remained open, namely to find a family F of functionals with the property: if the parameters of the equation belong to F then there is a solution which belongs to F. There is so to speak a weak and a strong ver- sion of this problem: a) the weak version is that one given above, b) the strong version requires that the elements of F are constructive in one sense or the other. Here we propose a solution of the weak problem. More precisely, we construct two families S’ and K. The first is in essence already described in [2] but it has the disadvantage that its construction leads beyond classical analysis. The second, K, is a more elaborate version of S and its construction remains within the scope of
