RE may be an abbreviation or a word or name. It may refer to:
'' Re was Café Tacuba's second and perhaps most important contribution to Mexico's music scene. The album was called "the equivalent of the Beatles ' White Album' for the rock en español movement" by the New York Times. The name probably comes from the second syllable in Solfege, perhaps because it was their second album. It was released in 1994 and consisted of twenty songs.
In computability theory and computational complexity theory, RE ( recursively enumerable) is the class of decision problems for which a 'yes' answer can be verified by a Turing machine in a finite amount of time. Informally, it means that if the answer to a problem instance is 'yes', then there is some procedure which takes finite time to determine this, and this procedure never falsely reports 'yes' when the true answer is 'no'. However, when the true answer is 'no', the procedure is not required to halt; it may go into an " infinite loop" for some 'no' cases. Such a procedure is sometimes called a semi-algorithm, to distinguish it from an algorithm, defined as a complete solution to a decision problem.
Equivalently, RE is the class of decision problems for which a Turing machine can list all the 'yes' instances, one by one (this is what 'enumerable' means). Each member of RE is a recursively enumerable set and therefore a Diophantine set.
Similarly, co-RE is the set of all languages that are complements of a language in RE. In a sense, co-RE contains languages of which membership can be disproved in a finite amount of time, but proving membership might take forever.
れ, in hiragana, or レ in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. The hiragana is written in two strokes, while katakana in one. Both represent the sound . The Ainu language uses a small katakana ㇾ to represent a final r sound after an e sound (エㇾ er).
Re is a remix album by French pop rock group Les Rita Mitsouko. It was released in 1990 and includes the singles "Hip Kit" and "Don't Forget the Nite". The album is compilation of new remixes, 12" single remixes and a new re-recording.
Receiving mixed reviews the album was originally released as a Double-LP, 5x12" single, Cassette and CD in October 1990. The artwork was designed by Judith E. Christ with photography by Stephane Sednaoui. Catherine Ringer and Fred Chichin pose in clothing designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier.
