Theorem: Simulating LOOP Programs Using WHILE Programs

Every LOOP program can be simulated using a WHILE program. In other words, the set of all LOOP-computable functions is a subset1 of all WHILE-computable functions:

\[L O O P \subseteq W H I L E.\]

1 Please note that the conversion is not true. One reason for this is because all LOOP-computable functions are total, but there are also partially WHILE-computable functions (which are not total).
